LeBron James Lavar Ball

LaVar Ball is one of those annoying sports dads who lives vicariously through their more talented children.

Ball, 48, is the father of UCLA Bruins freshman star Lonzo Ball (pictured above) and Chino Hills (Calif.) High School standouts LiAngelo Ball and LaMelo Ball, a sophomore who recently scored 92 points in one game.

LaVar Ball, who averaged 2 points a game in college, groomed his 3 biracial sons to be NBA superstars from birth.

"I told them, 'Somebody has to be better than Michael Jordan. Why not you?'"

Ball generates headlines daily by comparing himself and his sons to every past and present NBA star, including Jordan, Steph Curry, Charles Barkley, and now LeBron James.

In a recent interview, Ball suggested LeBron is too focused on his own career to cultivate his sons' basketball skills. He said LeBron hires a trainer for his sons, "Whereas the fact that I wasn’t all that, allows me to take the time to make my boys all that.

LeBron took offense at Ball's remarks.

In a statement to ESPN, LeBron said:

“Keep my kids’ name out of your mouth, keep my family out of your mouth. This is dad to dad. It’s a problem now.”

Ball is so rigidly defiant that, according to a family member, he refuses to let his sons see their mother, Tina Ball, who had a stroke on Feb. 21. She is still in a hospital recovering from brain surgery.

"Pathetic!" said the family member, who told Armchair All Americans that Ball visits his wife for an hour a few days a week. But his sons are forbidden to see her.

“The Ball boys are not allowed to see their mother, Lavar is afraid it will take away from their game(s).... Notice, she is not at any games, she is not at work, and she is not at home. Someone needs to ask the question, where is Tina? She is severely disabled and paralyzed on right side..."

In a post game press conference following UCLA's victory over Kent State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, a reporter asked Lonzo Ball about his mother.

Lonzo, ever mindful of his dad's master plan for him and his brothers, declined to respond.

    The ONE video/interview I've seen of this man, he does seem to be a lil arrogant. HOWEVER, I'm all for being a cheerleader for your children. I tell PP all the time, never limit yourself to the expectations someone ELSE puts on you. Go the extra mile..........it's not crowded there. Tuh.

  • Lovezoe

    She didn't even credit me lol

  • hi-liter

    Yeah, his boys are good, but he goes hard for them. Says his sons will be the first to have a billion dollar shoe deals. He says they are better than Curry, Jordan, and Lebron.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    A late start I see ?

  • Lovezoe

    That's right. Not today or tomorrow will you speak on my kids and get away with it

    I see I said ? Gurrrl ...lol.

  • Lovezoe

    If you score 92 points are you that good, the other team suck, or you a selfish player.

  • KDub

    What pist me the entire hell off is how they got on a reporter for asking about Tina Ball's health the other day as "being out of line". LISTENNNNNNNNNNN. They dragged John Wall (Raleigh/Garner stand the HELL UP!) past through the MUD about his dad, prison, how the dad got out. How the dad passed soon after and bled to damn death. YOU NAME IT. John only played one season at Ken-fukky. But it was THE "march Madness" story that year. I ALSO have a long ass college basketball memory. It used to irk the absolute LIFE outta me how they used to drag Juan Dixon parents lives up about them having been heroin addicts, died of AIDS, rough and tumble etc the hell up too every fukkin March that he played.
    But this white cave demon woman dare NOT be brung up? FOMF.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Why is the concept to leave children out of things hard for some to grasp?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    ON Topic: Mr. Ball is all about his children- which for a black man is rare- per blog logic

    On Topic: Lebron ready to windmill, so I suggest Mr. Ball gather all his little Balls and tread lightly.

    Off Topic: Has anyone been watching the Kaleif Browder Series on Spike? It is tearing at my heart, but Lord that young man was something amazing and would have been such a force.

  • nucynu25

    Amazing huh

  • hi-liter

    Ken-fukkky.......dat way ??

  • nucynu25

    Ive read abt it . Cried while reading and saw a clip .. it would disturb my spirit to see the doc so i probably never will.

  • KDub

    I believe in this too but this is WAY different. LaVar Ball pissing everyone and I do mean everyone the hell off about these boys. He is like a stage mom gone WAY wrong. You cant do that in basketball. You might even be able to get away with it in football. basketball...? Nope. He over the line and been over it.

  • Yoni7

    SURE DID! LMAOOOOOOOO

  • nucynu25

    Right ..lmao

  • PettyEyezPrime

    It's a different set a rules when that happens. I go hard behind mine.

  • Lovezoe

    Not ready to watch it yet..

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I remember how they always talked about Dixon fam. I was mad too. Like we get it. Y'all reported it. Move on.
    When I saw him on RHO Potomac, I was like look at Juan making it in life despite having addict parent (insert eye roll to the critics)

  • Yoni7

    I only watched one interview. Maybe they are. I wouldn't know and I guess I don't care either. LOL

  • stav

    He needs a life , and to stop living vicariously through his kids. Life is more than putting a ball through a hoop, and who can make more money. His ignorance and greed is disgusting. Instead of pushing them so hard for sports, he needs to push himself and them to have knowledge and wisdom, that will take you further than the NBA.

  • nucynu25

    That to me shows weakness. Ive never had to tear any one else down to build myself?mines up . He a crab in a bucket mf.

  • Di Ana

    Was it necessary to say that they were bi-racial?

  • Lovezoe

    I called him a stage mom last night lol.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    SELFISH PLAYER!!!

  • KDub

    Actually comes to find out that story is FAKE and it JUST came out yesterday that the man they said got the mom hooked on drugs, gave her dirty needles was NOT Juan daddy. Hold on. Let me go find it. But hell YES it ticked me off

  • hi-liter

    Helicopter dad.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    I saw a little bit of it. I was getting really pist watching it so i had to take a breather. System so messed up and all that boy wanted was a better life than what he was thown into from when he was literally born. But....sigh unfortunately he was black in the hood and wrong place wrong time. I just was too mad to keep going watching it but I eventually will. Story needed to b told

  • Yoni7

    I kinda pegged him that way from that interview. LOL That arrogance sauce is too much for ME. LOL

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Ive never had to tear any one else down to build myself?mines up

    THIS!!!!!

  • AG

    The first part of the write-up is misleading. But, LeBron is right here....I've agreed with Mr. Ball so far, but not in this.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He's totally anti-establishment. He formed his own AAU team for his sons so they wouldn't play on AAU teams sponsored by shoes giants like Nike or Adidas.

  • Yoni7

    Annoying. LOL

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I read about it and was determined to watch it-almost missed it. It is horrible, but I want to hear his words and his thoughts and why he refused to accept the bs plea deals they tried to shove down his throat.
    I just can stop saying how amazing that young man was- was born into hardship and had to keep fighting.
    Said he refused to plea, because something told him that he shouldn't.

  • KDub

    Great minds. He does too damn MUCH. And it pretty much decided if he does not stop that his son is not going pro anytime soon due to it. NOBODY wants to deal with that. He keeps it up they gonna investigate and FIND some kind of wrong doing. Cecil Newton (Cam newton's loud mouth daddy) anyone? He almost derailed that damn dude career with his BS.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They say he rarely crossed over the half court line. Didn't play a lick of defense. He just waited at half court for his teammates to pass him the ball so he could score.

  • KDub
  • Justlooknout

    Kudos to the father! Good for him.

    They tried to drag Richard Williams (Serena and Venus father) LOOK at them.

    We need more parents to push their kids, instead of them wandering aimlessly around. Fighting, catching cases and all the other BS that could PERHAPS be avoided.

  • Lovezoe

    I agree with this. Cuz you the way he acting you can be assured palms getting greased

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Just stating the facts, hun.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    What if, I hope not, but their careers are cut short or completely derailed??? How is he preparing them with possible exit plans? I think not having a plan B can be a good thing, but why train his kids to compete with original greats, who no one could possibly replicate! K O B E was great, but nothing he or LeBron will do can eclipse what MJ, Magic or earlier BB legends accomplished like Wilt C.! You can only really, really compete against yourself!

  • Lovezoe

    You ever call Tiny biracial?

    Story needed to b told<----YES and I am glad they got a chance to tape him telling his story.

    “Sometimes I feel like I’m never gonna be the same,” he admits after his release. “Deep down, I’m a mess. I’m 21 and on the inside, I feel like I’m 40.”

    “I felt like I was done wrong. I felt like something needed to be done…something needs to be said. If I just cop out and say that I did it, nothing’s gonna be done about it. I didn’t do it. No justice is served,” he said.

    It seems Lonzo is on the Joe Jackson and Matthew Knowles train.

  • nucynu25

    If thats the case we should salute Joe Jackson to ..just saying its levels to everything .

  • shun king

    People look at it as the black dad trying to get rich off his sons,but if it was a single mother it would be they good boys playing so they mom can have a better life...since dad around expect him to get demonized and maybe the sons also

  • nucynu25

    BLOOP

  • hi-liter

    There is no plan B. Out of those 3 boys, one of them HAS TO MAKE IT.

  • hi-liter

    Bingo.

    What if, I hope not, but their careers are cut short or completely derailed???

    THIS. I don't like to think like this or put it out in the atmosphere, but I was thinking "I wonder if he cheerleads as hard for their academic ability in addition to their physical ability."

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Definitely watch it when you are ready, as it will piss you off and have you crying at the same time.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    All these year later. I'm happy he still has a surviving parent. I'm going to have to catch the rerun of this so I can hear his story.

  • shun king

    The media don't like manly black dads that dare speak they mind,they prefer the single parent mom look

  • Yoni7

    Nothing wrong with rooting and pulling for them. But I need for parents (in general - that don't usually do it) to cheerlead for their children's academic abilities as well. Being famous don't mean shit when you can't read the contract you're signing.

  • shun king

    I don't think it's fashionable for a black dad to behave like a MAN

    Their mother is in a hospital and he refuses to let his sons see her. Is that a part of pushing his sons to greatness?

  • Yoni7

    I read the story/article on him long time ago. No, I have not watched it.

  • Yoni7

    THIS! I don't even turn on the TV........except Monday and tonight. I missed ILYIW yesterday. LOL

  • Phillybruh

    And he will pay for that in the long run, Joe got cut off, so did Matthew eventually the kids cut them off.

  • MissyJ

    They are in college...

  • Justlooknout

    agreed, but I don't think these have issues with comprehension.

    And if that is the case every kids excel in different areas...I have two sons one loves to talk about sports, but can't play for nothing and good in academics. The other runs like antelope, but wants NOTHING to do with it. Balance is everything. HAPPY WEDNESDAY.

    This thirsty azz dude is out of line! Yes, his offspring have talent. That doesn't give him any right to tell the next man what to do with his though ...focus on them things you have to parent and STFU about everyone else's.
    I also believe that part of the reason he's pushing his kids is because he gets a vicarious opportunity at a 'do over' to improve on that 2-Pt avg through his sons' achievements.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Isn't Lonzo 19? Is his father tying him up and locking him the basement? It's crazy to deny a child their parent but unless he is physically restraining at least Lonzo, it's Lonzo's choice. Let me check the ages. I think 1 is 15.

  • iWasteTime

    Do we know if their mother wants them to see her partially paralyzed? As a (selfless) parent she would want them to keep their focus and not worry about her.
    I notice the "concerned" family member didn't mention how their alleged absence is effecting Mrs. Ball physical and mental recovery.

  • nucynu25

    lol

  • missk85

    There is a difference in wanting your kids to succeed and selfishly living out your dream thru your children. The fact they are "forbidden" to see their ill mother is a problem.

    How long has she been paralyzed ? There should be no fault thrown @ Ball if his grown his kids dont wanna see thier momma but if she's been paralyzed for a while & he's put in their mind they shouldnt see her thats different .Either way its strange to me bc boys usally run to thier mom .. so its just strange that they wouldnt be there .

  • Diva_woman

    Ok there are some good things about this guy as a dad but he is also very obnoxious. I saw him doing an interview where he was basically saying he always goes after the best so he picked his wife because she was tall (and white) and told her I'm gonna marry you and we're gonna have three boys. He's always talking about his sons being light skinned like that's some sort of badge. They ain't the best looking kids and light skin ain't everything. But anyway he needs to quit because he's setting his kids up for so much critism and he better leave my lebron alone lol.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I'm still not convinced that he didn't commit the crime.

  • Solstice

    I can understand your point. ? But personally I would want my children to see me regardless. This woman may be on her death bed simply because of the fact that she had a massive stroke, and stroke victims are at high risk of suffering from another in their lifetime. My mother had a stroke less than a year ago. She is well but we know the likelihood of her suffering from another is very high. Ain't no way I was not going to go see me mother after her stroke and I have a family to support, a job to do, and futures to mold. And as a mother I would want my children to come see me. As you pointed out, support and encouragement from your loved ones can help aid in her recovery. It sounds as though this woman has a lot of therapy and rehabilitation ahead of her. It's unfortunate. I wish their family the best.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I'm not mad that he wants his children to have the most and refuses to be sponsored by those companies without. If it were a white pappy it would be "he's changing the game and holding out is the best option for his children"

    Even though the accuser changed his story multiple times, even during the arrest?

    You really think that young man endured all of that, even though he was guilty, when he was given the opportunity to take a deal on more than one occasion?

    You have to be killing me

  • Yoni7

    I'm not concerned with his plan. I'm stating on his "academic" cheerleading abilities.

  • Dkwitty

    If you actually watch his interviews he's not that bad. He's a proud father putting extreme confidence in his sons. People say the same about Lebron's kids as they did about Jordan's sons. If Lebron's kids are going to play ball then people are going to talk about them. Kanye shrug.

  • CaramelDrop

    Pops and the boys sure have a long ass mandible?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I don't think anybody who watches it enjoys it. That wasn't the purpose. But I think this was about the brother getting accused of being the Bronx rapist and making them look dumb because he wasn't. Just seems real suspect that both of these young men were falsely arrested and one publicly accused in the papers, etc

  • shun king

    Like what? Cause my take is folk mad cause he not a backwood Ebonics dad maybe if one of the sons was rapping he would get more of a pass

  • Dkwitty

    He ain't no different than

    I can understand that. I would think that would be hard on a 15 and 19 year old period. That is why I asked if she wanted them to see her. Right now I would say I don't want mine to see me that way but he is younger than these kids. My husband assisted with his mothers care until the day she died, he was 12. He's said his memories of her are all distorted because of what he saw and had to help with. It's a hard situation. I too, wish them the best!

    Joe. Check
    Mathew Knowles. Check.
    Richard got mad as hell when they actually got professional coaches back in the 1990s and other managers. Check.

  • Dkwitty

    Exactly. His kids will grow tired of his antics as they mature and go to live on their own. Guaranteed.

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    I'm definitely not mad at him wanting better for his kids ...just seems he's wanting the same thing offered by those he's boycotting .im sure I'm losing some part of the story though, lol

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    None of those men talked as much trash as this guy does though. He's on a whole different level.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    He's doing way too much

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    He's full of pride (and not the 'good' kind)

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    Did not! This guy just happens to have been making my behind itch for a while now.??

    That's what YOU said...?

    Lebron is wealth. His kids will never have to chase balls!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Former trash basketball player pushing his troglodyte children to become greatness. So he can live vicariously through them.Then said former shitty player tries to drag an NBA star in honor of his ugly children. smh.

    “The Ball boys are not allowed to see their mother, Lavar is afraid it will take away from their game"

    I have a big problem with this.
    Family is more important than basketball. Let the boys see their mother.

  • Diva_woman

    He didn't explicitly say it but it was implied through his comments about her and about his kids being mixed. I read between the lines, he was saying things like "I chose everything about her for a reason, my kids are white and black and they can go anywhere and be accepted in any room". He admits that everything about his life was planned and for a purpose and I took from that he also planned those babies being mixed because it gives them cross over appeal. Watch some of his interviews.

  • AlwaysPi7

    My reaction as well.

  • Guess Who

    WTF...their mom had a stroke and is hospitalized...and this azzhole won't let them see her...because it will take away from their game?

    What type of fuk boy shyt is that? UGH. He's ignorant, self-serving TRASH.

  • Guess Who

    LOL..PRETTY MUCH!

  • EMILY POST

    The guy took a double shot... He just used Lebrons name but he was talking about all those Pro Ballers of his era that dont take care of their kids.... That was a jab and some shade he was throwing... Why the fool used Lebrons name as a example to do it... We dont know... But that guy has to be from Cali... LOL They breed that type there.
    Yuck I feel for his kids cause you can tell he is living through them.

  • Chuck

    Bell is an ignorant father, with ghetto kids names.

  • SuperScooper1

    He can say all he wants, but LeBron is a known commodity and money maker for the NBA. Doors can and will close on this man if he keeps running his mouth. I wonder how much the experimental league in Kuwait is paying these days?

  • SuperScooper1

    It was the shady comment that implied LeBron didn't have a father in his life and that he could have been pushed further, which is none of his business and is history at this point.

  • 88

    Mr. Ball is correct and nobody but c00ns and ppl who like to see weak and effeminate black men will attack him.

  • bemetoo

    god forbid if thees kids fail in the NBA

  • Diva4lyfe

    they dad will be the next one in the hospital with a stroke

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I don't know the whole story. People are sure that OJ did it but I'm not. It's a me thing.

  • shaylynnn

    He talking reckless because he knows his son is about to be the face of the Lakers. & if they play it right, the Lakers will be running the West in the next 10 years. He made his kids for this.

  • lovelygamour

    F him and his sons. Why is he only talking about nba players with black mothers.
    I'm sorry the lady maybe ill but I have no sympathy about her being squirrel away. She knew what she married. I doubt they love each other. She just wanted to be important. No telling how much slick ish they have talked in the past. I feel sorry for the sons because this is going to taint them when they get older. They should be well rounded enough to visit their mom. They grew up rich!

  • Torae

    His relationship with his sons will not end well...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. They will hate him for putting his selfish needs over them.

  • samuel severino

    Umm.... Earl and Tiger were estranged for a very long time. This is why at one point he was only thanking his mom after victories and why you didn't see his Dad like you did in the beginning. They patched up before he died so that was good.

  • KDub

    Alrighty then! All of them. Pushing kids like that can cause mad resentment. Its sad.

  • Miany

    sad...I got this vibe about him. I watched his RECENT interviews and got the insecure vibe...a man can only scream & carry on so much before I REALIZE he is insecure lol

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I got my first whiff of him last week and although we all want our kids to prosper he is a tad bit wayyyyyy too extra. I wish his three children the best.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He's a narcissistic bish. He practically abandoned his trophy wife in a hospital because, in her disabled state, she isn't good for his public image. He won't even let his sons publicly acknowledge her existence. ?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Wow I only saw a bit because Sir Charles challenged him. The little I saw didn't leave positive vibes for him but his kids.

  • VM

    Weak! Completely off the hinges, let me call maintenance. Lol.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I don't think OJ did it, but I believe he knows who did. But you said you weren't sure Khaleif DIDN'T do it......why? In the documentary and other reports they have concluded he was locked up for a crime he didn't do and even through all he endured, he maintained his innocence.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I agree FULLY with this!!

  • http://flcrime.com/ FLCrime

    Accurate summation

  • Youshockedme

    I guess he is the JOE JACKSON of basketball. ..

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know, but sports careers are relatively short anyway, and certain injuries can end it even sooner. College is a very important time to prepare with leverage and creating options. Many spiral out of control when or if dreams are dashed! It certainly happens! I believe in walking in absolutely certainty, and believing without doubt at the same time!

  • monique

    Lebron is a working husband and father. I have seen many videos of their family time together and they seem to have fun. He doesn't need to push his sons to play basketball. They probably play because they want to be like dad and it's natural. Why would this guy say Lebron doesn't groom his sons to play? Maybe he wants them to choose to play or not.

  • nich

    If that's true about the mother, he really needs to be ashamed of himself. If mom doesn't make it, these boys will be very messed up in the head. I get that it's a one and a million chance to get to the NBA, but some things, some ppl, especially your parents very important.

    Sadly, that's why I didn't bother to watch. I can't let these things upset my spirit.

  • missmiami305

    SAME! Can't let it disturb me.

  • WiserWords2

    He may not be beating them physically. There are other ways to hurt children. From what Sandra wrote, he may be "beating" them emotionally.

  • Starsky Willows

    Omg he looks like Drake...LOL

  • nucynu25

    It was sarcasm my luv .

  • AListDiva29

    I'm sorry, but regardless of their gender or race, parents need to teach their child that academics come first, and push them to put that first, not sports! God forbid what if one of those boys tears his ACL or something worse, and can never play again? They will have a hard time since their father pushed them in sports their whole life!

  • B.Loveitt

    I see not one thing that looks like a Drake in these pics. IJS

  • IanMC

    Dont worry when his biracial sons all marry a white woman in the future Lava Ball grandkids will all look white.
