Listen, I really like Lonzo Ball. I about came to fisticuffs with my idiot friend tonight who tried to tell me that Lonzo stinks. That’s just false. That’s just an idiot lashing out because he wants Lonzo to stink.
Lonzo has become a good NBA defender. He’s an excellent passer. Sure, his shooting needs help, but we know that. There is plenty to like about Lonzo Ball. Just ask Lavar Ball.
Lonzo will play with any bum that walks in a gym. He’ll make them better. Again, that’s what LaVar is saying here. Not me. Granted, he did turn TJ Leaf and Ike Anigbogu into draft picks. He almost helped Steve Alford keep his job at UCLA. He almost made UCLA relevant – until De’Aaron Fox reminded everyone that he is better.
But that’s not what this is about. This is about LaVar Ball being a goddamn liar. This is someone that is DYING to keep Lonzo in LA. I mean he’s made this guarantee before
I actually think Lonzo with Holiday, Zion and the rest of the Pelicans is a good fit. But, don’t tell LaVar that. It’s not Los Angeles.
Also, I’ll be willing to take any bets that say the Lakers win a title again before the Pelicans. Just a hunch.
