Since the hashtag #LavarBallSays went viral last week, the always entertaining father of the Ball Bros has come up with some new stuff better than most of the stuff the internet is coming up with. Like, “To me Zo is the best player in the world. Yes, even better than all-stars LeBron and Russell Westbrook.”
Since he feels that way, it’s no surprise he believes Ball should be the top pick in the upcoming NBA draft and not Washington’s Markelle Fultz – the player most believe will be the #1 pick.
“If you got a kid that makes everybody better, you mean to tell me you wouldn’t take him over a guy that’s averaging 40 points but the team’s losing?? If you wanna winner, you pick my boy.”
“Look what he did to UCLA. They 15-17 last year. You bring one dude and change the culture that’s what you want, it’s not Lonzo’s passing and shooting that’s his great gift, it’s the winning.”
And on Friday, Lonzo and his UCLA squad won 97-80 over Kent State despite an injury scare with Ball and Charles Barkley rooting for the other team.
