You are all taking a one sided view of the argument. Kobe's parents shunned him for years after the marriage, not the other way around. After a few years of reconciliation, Kobe's parents complained about him spending more on his wife's family than on them. The auction of items left in his childhood home made the whole family look bad, neither side had the moral high ground after that legal ugliness. Now he's cut them off entirely as of last year.
So far nothing Lavar has done is in that neighborhood, at least drama wise. This is more like Todd Marinovich or Taylor King, except Ball seems to be doing a much better job than either dad so far, and the kids have more talent.
Many surmised Kobe's parents were unhappy with him marrying out-of-ethnicity, something both insiders and Kobe himself has confirmed. That would explain the hostilities and petty bickering that come with deep seated family grudges.
