LaVar Ball Lonzo Ball

LaVar Ball continues to make enemies within the L.A. Lakers organization, even as he coaches his other sons’ Lithuanian team across the pond. LaVar, who coaches his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo in Lithuania, reportedly told Lithuanian media that he will pull his son Lonzo Ball away from the Lakers (and presumably sign him to the Lithuanian team), if the Lakers don’t acquire LiAngelo and LaMelo.

Lonzo, who is currently away from the Lakers recovering from a knee injury, finds himself trapped between his outspoken father and the Lakers front office.

“No reaction,” Lonzo, 20, told ESPN.com‘s Ramona Shelburne of LaVar’s threat. “I always just play. He always talks. It’s always been the same way.”

LaVar famously pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA after the troubled teenager was suspended for stealing a pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses in China last year.

He also withdrew his youngest son, LaMelo, 16, out of Chino Hills High School after a disagreement with the coach.

LaVar is said to be upset at Lakers boss Magic Johnson for making him pay top dollar to film Lakers games for his family’s Facebook series, “Ball In The Family”.

The Lakers forced LaVar to cough up $150,000 for the rights to film the Lakers games, while other corporations aren’t charged a fee at all.

Magic Johnson, who is president of basketball operations for the Lakers, has remained quiet publicly, but privately he is “angry and disappointed” over LaVar’s comments.

“He’s marketing their business, so hats off to him. Keep doing it,” Johnson told Shelburne. “Just make sure that you allow your son to grow and us to go through our lumps and bruises like we’re going through, and things are gonna work out. Things are gonna work out for the Lakers and for Lonzo.”

  • Yoni7

  • RaginB

  • ???TheRider???

    Auntie, you couldn’t find a better picture of the family? IJS……..

  • Yardgirl

    Lol!

  • Magic got hoes

    Lonzo crazy ass seemed like he raised better kids. I mean who dresses like that in front of their dad.

  • MsPam

    Lonzo needs to man up and tell his father to shut up! If Lonzo is man to be bringing a child into the world soon, he can tell pops to have several seats!

  • Ebony Starr

    Why all the long faces?!!!

  • hottlanta

    Wow ain’t nothing like a man who chest hairs look like black lint balls.

  • sunni_daze

    But his son is a bum and his father bullied the lakers. Next season he’ll be playing overseas.

  • datjerk

    They do possess a certain difficult beauty, don’t they?

  • JV

    Lonzo needs to play as much as people to prove he can start hitting jump shots. Sitting now would ruin his chances of a big contract. Now, that said, if he does end up playing like a #2 pick — he does have the talent — then I can see the Lakers signing his bros. to 2-way league minimum contracts just to appease LaVar. It’s been done before, like with JR Smith’s brother when he was on the Knicks.

  • Rachel

    Lavar Ball is going to be the downfall of his own family. He is a real life Debo.

  • Kemi

    CRAY!!!!

  • R Smith

    Probably because there’s 50+ cameras LQQKING at them :o)

  • Shawty

    This dude need to sit his azz down somewhere. If they good enough, they will make it. If they aren’t why make the one that’s good enough to make it suffer. I don’t understand his logic. I’d rather have one make it than none. If he thinks he’s gonna bully them in, ALL of them will be on the couch watching the big screen like most of us do…lol.

  • Shawty

    cracking up

  • Rayne

    He needs to give his dad the old “SHUT UP DAD!”

  • klwbaby

    If they do with LaVar wants, then they would be the laughing stock of the league.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    So the pimps mad cuz his bottom hoe is in the NBA but his field hoes aint. Like GTFOH!! He bout to mess it up for all them pretty soon. When your parents become a liability and start making demands, they shut your whole empire down.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    “difficult beauty” LMFAOOOOOOOO thats perfect

  • i troll it like i see it

    The two adult boys need to find new management. If Lavar keeps this up he may lose all three sons when the younger comes of age.

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    They must be a poorly ran organization to allow Lavar Ball to get underneath their skin… I hear worst about the Lakers from the fans on twitter lol

  • i troll it like i see it

    That’s a deal breaker for me. Hard no.

  • i troll it like i see it

    What better pictures of the family. The family is unattractive.

  • JRock

    This man is taking his last name”ball” waaaay too seriously. He prolly went to the front office, took a tiny, tiny size bag (smaller than a marble bag), out of his pants, laid them on the general manager’s desk and said: “I’m laying deez nutz (my cards) on the table. Either you take my uh-da son or Lonza walks.

    This dude probably has nutz the size of a prematurely born worm. Very small and very deformed looking. And I’ll bet’cha if a cat scanned were done on his brain you would see those same deformed nutz bumping into each other in his brain like a go-cart.

    Who in their right mind makes that type of threat to their son’s employer? He’s going to mess around and keep letting that green alien dust run his mouth and none of his sons will be employable in this country or the next if he doesn’t shut the hell up and go stand in a corner. He’s such a bitch.

  • Candance

    I love LaVar but this is a bit much!

  • hottlanta

    I like laying my head on my man chest. I don’t wanna get cut.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I wish he would stop throwing a tantrum everytime things dont go his way…before he blackballs his whole entire family.

  • Simone

    Lavar just talking. Lonzo will be fine and the Ball family will keep Balling.
    This is all just entertainment…and people eat it up.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Lakers should have never drafter Lonzo. Too much family baggage and drama. Just not worth the hassle.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The Lakers dont care about Lonzo. If he goes he goes…Thats like dealing with a woman/man who has so much drama and baggage you are relieved once you dump them. Lavar has ruined all of his sons NBA careers…

  • what?why

    This guy is hilarious, like anyone cares what he does or thinks.

  • Missy

    Not him again. *eye roll*

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This man is a Bully … bye demon

  • candy

    So sick of this ninja. ?Dude wants to live his hoop dreams through his kids. Low key they probably can’t stand him. ?

  • Fire & Ice

    Sooooo he’s trying to strong-arm the Lakers, into picking up his other tow kids…okkk ???

  • Yoni7

    The word BEAUTY should NEVER be associated when describing them.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Me neither!

  • ??LordHell2TheNaw??

    These ‘La- Ugly people need to silently go away….that La-Stupid dad needs to stop bullying his children and others….

  • LAVAR STFU

    Magic’s family look a MESS.

    LAVAR STFU YOU IDIOT! Take all your sons to Lithuania!

  • YaYa

    find this man a shirt

  • Wreckognize Game

    Poor Ball brothers. Their daddy has turned them into sister wives. Ball for one, one for all.

  • Roxie Moxie

    I was JUST thinking that! Something about his man boobs are making me sick to my stomach.

  • TheOwley

    Lonzo Ball needs to re-assert himself as a man and tell dad he’s not going to ruin his career. He already has a child on the way so it’s not about just him anymore. In any even, the Lakers are probably looking into getting rid of his contract considering Lebron may be headed to the LAL and no way is Lavar going to be part of that scene.

  • Karen Brady

    I’ll be back. Gonna grab a shirt for Lonzo. Don’t nobody want to see that.

  • dontgetblocked

    It’s sad to see someone self-destruct and even sadder to see him take his family down with him. They’ll be broke in two years.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Be sure to get him a turtle neck that zips up above his mouth so he can STFU. So tired of this man and his uglass sons.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    They’re facially challenged..

  • Lady Elle

    In my Kendrick Lamar voice to LaVar…be humble, sit down…

  • gro$$

    lmmfao!!!

  • Julia Lyons

    This is all that needs to be said!

  • bemetoo

    lavar use to be a sexy zaddy

  • Marc Jacobe

    I wish him and his family get the hell out the USA..

  • Brianna

    He is a coon. I feel like hes gonna fuck up his kids careers b/c at this point theyre getting grown or at least old enough to make their own decisions. Theyre gonna tell his kids ” look, you gonna tell your daddy to stfu or are you gonna be an adult and play this game”. He thinks people are phased by his buffonery. . . with his wack ass shoes.

  • zero options

    Can someone please introduce this family to the kardashians?
    Let them devour each other!

  • Lady Elle

    Absolutely!

  • LordeAmbler

    I wanna say Lebron going to the Lakers with an uncapped pay they already traded 2 of the cavs players their. He setting up that first string ehile he finish out his season with Cavs.

  • MRiGOThim

    EJ is actually SITTIN in that pic…Love Mr. Ball’s man boobs #MOOBS

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Oh , so I see he’s going to go with the “Monique” approach . You know , I talk so much that I mess up my own money and my sons . CONTROL FREAK

  • gro$$

    hes a bigger queen behind the scenes …
    this joe Jackson wanna be needs to stop ripping off the fools that bought his ugly shoes! what a gross feeling I get thinking about him raising 3 sons he sees as his property!! SAD

  • JENNYJONES1

    AHHHH WHY WAS I ABOUT TO SAY PLEASE GO AHEAD AND TAKE HIM AND BIG MOUTH MONIQUE TO THE CHICKEN CIRCUIT WHERE THEY ARE ALREADY HEADED TO ANYHOW. I KNOW HIS SON’S ARE YOUNG BUT I REALLY WISH ATLEAST 1 OF THEM WOULD TELL HIM TO STFU AND STOP RUINING MY LIFE & CAREER. IF THIS LAKER ULTIMATUM IS TRUE IT’S JUST A CHEAP PLOY FOR HIM TO GET OUT OF ADMITTING HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE ‘F’ HE IS DOING AND HE TOTALLY ‘F’ UP HIS SON’S CAREERS WITH THIS LITHUANIA MOVE. I HOPE LONZO IS PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION AND DOESN’T LET HIS DAD DO THE SAME WITH HIS CAREER…………JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    AS MUCH ISH AS LAVAR TALKS THE LAKERS SAID IF YOU WANT THIS FOOTAGE THEN YOU CAN PAY LIKE YOUR BIG MOUTH WEIGHS. PAY UP BEY-0TCH!!!!……….JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Allihave2say

    This narcissist is determined to ruin his children’s lives. He won’t let his son be a grown man for shizz. The Ball boys are facially challenged and prime candidates for publicly approved plastic reconstructive surgery. LaVar should be happy about two things:
    1. His boys have basic basketball skills, and
    2. People continue to allow him to speak in pubic with dirty snot colored teeth.

  • Allihave2say

    I’m willing to bet he controls all the money his son earns from the Lakers.

  • Allihave2say

    GGGGGGGGGGRRRROOOOSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!

  • Allihave2say

    Did you say his slow kids?

  • parisjok

    he is so ugly and his sons are all big headed ugly also. his wife just lets him do everything and anything stupid and cray cray that he wants with those sons.

    it is like he is the only one that decides what is done with the whole family. don’t see how any of those sons are going to be able to actually live on they own less not be someone’s husband as head of household

  • parisjok

    did not know that. going to be interesting

  • Trace da Ace

    Yeah he really needs to tuck them titties in…..have a big gulp of “sit your dumb ass down” and he humble. He is going to be the main reason why all 3 of his sons will be serving up sandwiches at Subway…he acts like them boys are big ballers (pun intended) or something….NAH…and if he thinks he can go up against Magic….LMFAO….yeah right.
