Now that the Los Angeles Lakers secured the second pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, everyone expects them to select UCLA’s Lonzo Ball when they are finally on the clock. But after his father, LaVar Ball‘s blowup on “The Herd” Wednesday afternoon it’s time to seriously assess whether Lonzo is worth the headache his dad is sure to bring.
What LaVar Ball did to Kristine Leahy on Wednesday was wildly disrespectful. Things have been said on both sides, but refusing to acknowledge or even look at her crossed a line. He was a guest on her show and he acted like she wasn’t even there. Then he offered up a thinly-veiled threat in her direction. It was ridiculous and something that no one should be defending.
