Big Baller Brand is back — and apparently, so is LaVar Ball. Two weeks after bringing his failed company back to life with a new website, Ball returned to the public spotlight with a Tuesday appearance on FS1’s “Undisputed.”
Despite keeping a low profile following the fallout of Big Baller Brand in early 2019, Ball didn’t skip a beat on the show and quickly started making his traditional outlandish claims.
Needless to say, it didn’t take long for Ball to start trending on social media.
These were his most ridiculous statements during his segment with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe:
The Pelicans will top the Lakers in the 2020 NBA playoffs
Ball said the Lakers will lose because his oldest son, Lonzo, will be in “revenge” mode against his former team.
LiAngelo will lead the NBA in scoring
Ball claims his middle son, LiAngelo, will be the NBA’s leading scorer within three years.
The only problem? The 21-year-old just received a G League contract, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania, and has never played in an NBA game.
The Knicks are the best fit for LaMelo
Ball’s youngest son, LaMelo, could be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
LaVar claims he wants the 18-year-old to be drafted by the Knicks, who have the fifth-worst record in the league (19-42) and haven’t made the playoffs since 2013.
“The best fit in my eyes is New York, the New York Knicks,” Ball said. “Because I know Melo. Melo is a big city guy, he likes lights, he’d love it.”
LaVar also thinks LaMelo benefited from dropping out of high school in October 2017 and embarking on a professional career overseas.
LaMelo’s physical development is slow because of his mother’s genetics
Ball thinks LaMelo will need a few years to physically mature because his mom is white.
