: : : : : : : : : : : All this makes you wonder if Steve Alford has signed his soul to the devil - just hope the NCAA finds out how much that signature cost.
: : : : : : : : : : Usually it's the kid who crashes and burns when out of the nest. This time it will be daddy ball.
: : : : : : : : : Save it. Does Lavar go too far. 100%. But at least he's not hiding it. He's doing it out in the open and saying what his agenda is out in the open. He's hustling to get his kids as much shine as possible. Guys are saying that it's a problem with Lavar because he actually got a kid to UCLA who's a future pro. Is Gelo good. Hell nah. I don't think that Melo is good either. But Gelo is going to UCLA and Melo was on ESPN. Are we judging the results or the actions? Because if we're judging the actions I didn't see this for weird ass basketball at Buckley? Freedman's dad is trying to pimp out Bol Bol to get his son some shine, where's everybody on that? Village Christian is a Masters College alumni daddy ball, 5 kids left mid season, and ya'll tripping on Lavar's goofy ass?
: : : : : : : : : Save it. Lavar's goofy but he's real enough to do it openly. You guys are quick to get on the brother for doing it in the open but silent on the white folks trying to be lowkey dirty.
: : : : : : : : : Call his antics whatever you like. All the success his kids have had still can't by him any class. He gives all of us African Americans a bad name..
: : : : : : : I see that Freedman gets plenty of hits on this blog, but even if we were silent about him and the others, this ain't a race thing. Regardless of Lavar's race, he is a buffoon, period. Has nothing to do with the fact he is black. The other guys and Daddy ball etc ain't done on such a public, loud and obnoxious manner. Sure there are haters out there (Dinos, Tyler and Timmy's daddy and others), but this dude is a loud mouth jerk and it ain't hating or racist to say it.
: : : : : : You're wrong. It's worse when guys try to do daddy ball in private. Because now you have kids involved that didn't sign up for mess. The parents at Chino Hills know what to expect. So if your son is there then you know. None of us at Village knew what it was going to be. I don't like Lavar's antics but he's not a liar and is enthusiastic. Jon Shaw lied to a lot of families. Daniel Boatwright and the Starrs entered school in late September. Daniel started and it wasn't deserved. Charlie Prager did everything asked but Coach Shaw praised these transfers before they were eligible. Nothing was earned by Shaw's favorites and all he did was blame kids for every loss. He would literally say "You guys don't respect the game." He told kids this as if they don't see what's going on. Instead of being a man and admitting that kids left the program because of the atmosphere he created, he told the team that Majur was kidnapped. When he heard that another player was transferring he told Jack Pollon to say something about his age. That's the kind of person was coaching young men. So he's a bad basketball coach and person. Can we say that about Lavar? Maybe. But we know that we can say that about Jon Shaw.
: : : : : : Good kids left mid season. Every kid that stayed was happy when the season ended. At least Lavar isn't pretending to be a Christian guy, lying to everyone and robbing kids of their high school time, especially seniors.
: : : : : We expect kids to act like kids and adults to act like adults. Levar is an absolute joke and embarrassment to his family, Chino Hills and UCLA. Imagine every dad who thought his kid was the next MJ going nuts in public. We would have to give all parents mandatory drug testing or mental health exams. Enough is Enough !
: : : : There are parents with kids coming of the bench on Valley Torah High School's jv that thinks that their kid is the next Jordan. They just don't have the platform to say it because their kid can't play. Lonzo is a top 5 NBA draft pick. If my son and his awkward medieval catapult release was a future top 5 pick I'd say that I think he'll be better than Nick Young. I was trying to type "Jordan" to prove a point but I just can't do it. No I don't go back and erase sentences. I treat this like a conversation. Valencia High School will have a kid at their school with a video of himself dribbling on tanks, calling himself the best ball handler in the country and has the nickname "White Shadow." Let's compare that to Lavar Ball calling his future top 5 NBA pick son the next great one. Yeah... I'm standing next to Lavar on this.
: : : : Is Lavar humble, modest? No. Does he talk a lot? Yes. The sinkhole down the block from my house is smaller than his mouth. But that doesn't bother me too much. How he hijacked a high school for his sons is the issue that I have. And YES I have a problem with it happening anywhere. I made Chaminade's issues public. Just because Lavar's open about his nepotism doesn't make it right but it does create a level of transparency that does have to be appreciated. It's 100% worse what was happening at Chaminade. When it's done in secret then these adults know that they're not being fair and destroying the experiences for other kids and families.
: : : : Is it true that White Shadow's parents have taken siege of the program at Valencia?Nobody's running to see Valencia basketball games but Tanner and Dustin deserves a fair opportunity to earn minutes. Playing time shouldn't be given to White Latte. Yes I'm changing his name. The kid lives in Valencia, has the money to create a video with the budget of Rambo 2 and I think that the ridiculous nickname was given by his parents or the overpriced videographer. If the kid gets to high school and dominates Magic Mountain high school, I might call him White C. But for now, I'll call him by his name once I know it or "White Latte."
: : : : Village Christian took it to an obscene level. Not worth discussing here. But programs like that and Moore Massacre Chaminade deserves more attention than Lavar saying that he's AllAmerican son is great.
: : : It's foul because of the pressure it puts on his kids. He should be ashamed of himself. Instead he continues to show no shame. It must be nice to sit back and boast, then make your kids go out and do the proving. Now Lonzo is forced to answer questions and face ridicule about whether he's better than Seth Curry? What a great parent....
: : : Btw, Lavar was never even close to being the player that even Gelo has become.
: : Not only is the peanut gallery taking smack about Lavar, which many wish to dismiss as being "haters" or "jealous" or "racist" or "Tyler or Justin's daddy" that thinks they should be starting, but the national media, commentators, radio hosts, sportscasters and others are calling Lavar "crazy"
: I've been saying this the last 3-4 years....WE (every one) is talking about Lavar and not Zo! That's the f'ing problem here y'all!!! Let's start talking "Biggie" and forget about "Puff"!
Caster, we have to talk about Puff (Lavar). He wants to be "all up in the videos... dancing all on the sideline."
Can I get my street cred stripes? Can I get some love? By love, can I have an Ebony Queen show J. Cred some loving? Carmen Hayes and Shaunie Oneal is from Inglewood. Can I get an Inglewood Queen out to Studio City? If you got the Carmen Hayes reference without google I applaud you. You're a person of the fine taste in cinema.
