Voice of the 'Fan

A parent in denial

LaVar Ball just doesn't get it.

It seems that Ball, who is milking his 15 minutes of fame on a daily basis, doesn't know when to keep his yap closed. He's ragged on the Lakers because they're losing and, in his warped mind, they're not using son Lonzo in the 4th quarter. Never mind that the rookie's struggles come with the territory. In La Loudmouth's world, Lonzo is the new star, and should be in the game at crunch time, struggling or not. He pulled youngest son LaMelo out of Chino Hills HS in Los Angeles because he doesn't like the new coach. Lame. Lamer still was the decision on Monday to pull LiAngelo out of UCLA, rather than wait for school administration there to decide when LiAngelo's indefinite suspension for shoplifting in China last month would reach a reasonable conclusion.

And he thinks LiAngelo can be drafted next June? I'm not going to waste a question. The man is definitely crazy.

Truth is, he's in denial of the fact that NBA & college scouts know more about the game than he does. He's living vicariously through his kids so he can get rich, has an online reality show currently running, and it's probably no different than the various reality shows on cable anyway. The Lakers decided to keep the media away from the publicity addicted old man with delusions worse than those of President Trump, if you can believe it.

Well, believe this, LaVar. No one's sane enough to spend $500 or better on your shoes. Cut the prices. Let LaMelo & LiAngelo go back to school, and let them find out for themselves that Father doesn't always know best. Period.
