LaVar Ball

LaVar Ball is not a happy man these days. The egocentric sports dad, whose 3 sons are among the most talked-about athletes in sports, has run out of time.

Carron J. Phillips, a writer for the NY Daily News, reports that LaVar failed to sign one basketball prospect to his Junior Basketball Association (JBA).

LaVar had proposed to pay top high school prospects anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 to opt out of going to college and play for his league.

But according to a report by SB Nation, LaVar failed to recruit any of the top players in the 2018 class to join his league.

Additionally, it was announced that LaVar's troubled middle son LiAngelo Ball would not be one of the 69 players invited to this week’s NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

After pulling LiAngelo out of UCLA following the embarrassing shoplifting incident in China last year, LaVar took LiAngelo and youngest son LaMelo Ball to play for the low-level Lithuania league for three months.

LaVar also has serious problems off the court. The Better Business Bureau downgraded LaVar's Big Baller Brand to an 'F' rating after fielding multiple complaints about his business practices.

The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about Big Baller Brand's "unfulfilled and erroneous orders" after receiving 30 complaints.

Last week, Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones said it took a year to receive the $495 Big Baller Brand shoes that he purchased 12 months prior.

"I'm not one to complain, but these, um, just got here," Jones said in a video to TMZ Sports. "I bought these a year ago. They just got here."

    This dude always irritated me and rubbed me the wrong way. Good riddance.

    I bet he's an avid drinker...

  • Yoni7

    Aww poor thing. Hope he gets back to where he wants to be.

  • Yoni7

    It almost seems like that pic up top deserves a Jordan crying face. LOL

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    i totally get Con-man vibes from this dude

  • justlooking

    I agree YG, which is why I'm glad they are doing the NBA g league. Because these colleges was reaping the benefit of those young men coming to school for a short 8 months. Meanwhile the colleges reaping all the benefits...They struggling and soon after it's all these manufactured investigations.

  • justlooking

    Mr. Ball go suck some.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Say it again for the dumb ones in the back sis

  • FukkFolks2018

    Lawd nobody believes my sports theories. I think its because I am FEE-MALE (like Donna Goodeau). I said this literally 18 months ago that he was gonna be a failure and fade to black

  • AmericanDream

    I’m not a prophet , but don’t be surprised if I’m a few years this clown and attention slut of a dad is no longer on speaking terms with his sons or at least one of them. There’s no nothing worse in parenting than parents trying to achieve through their kids what they couldn’t achieve on their own .

  • Scromes1212

    Lavar will be fine lol his youngest son will go first round and of course no body signed up for his league cause they all think they getting drafted. Wait til after the draft when it's over a 100 kids that don't get drafted, that 10,000 will look real good to a broke 22 year old. Trust the process

  • Yoni7


  • Yoni7

    :facepalm: LOL

  • Gloria

    I can definitely see that happening. So sad. SMH.

  • SweetTEE

    These boys will hate and despise him when they realize that their arrogant father ruined any chance or a career they would have. I respect his go hard for them and his vision, but he there's a right and a wrong way to do things and his old ass should know this by now.

  • FukkFolks2018

    You know I had one on deck lol. This one is from when Duke lost in NCAA this year. That's Coach K's body lol.

  • SweetTEE

    ion see just drinking. I can guarantee he's probably was physically or mentally abusive. I can just see him hitting them growing up if they missed shots or lost games.

  • justlooking


  • Strip Club Veteran

    Not that I'm a fan of college but I find it ironic he'd offer kids coming out of high school money to not go to college where'd they'd earn a good education and possibly make a shit load more than that funky ass money. Mfs like him are scum.

  • tia

    good riddance ................

  • FukkFolks2018

    I agree. To the wife too

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He looks like an old horse.

    A hard-drinking one.

  • Roderick2011

    Even Stevie Wonder could see that LaVar was a conman.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Roderick2011

    Of course. They understand that he tried to pimp them out just like Kris Kardashian has pimped out all of her daughters so she can live her lifestyle.

  • tia

    Con-Man.. bullshitter.. straight fast talker

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ???? log out... I have been laughing at your azz all damn morning ... ?? chile

  • SweetTEE

    Especially her. Shit I feel sorry for that poor sickly lady.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im on the fence about it. Bc its become more common place for these players to go to college but drop out after a year to get drafted, and not everyone gets drafted. Called one and done. And if you dont get drafted, then its a whole bunch of red tape to go back to school for xyz amount of time, deadlines you gotta adhere too... bc you have forfieted your playing eligibility. The rules are always changing. But many just say fukk it. Some are lucky enough to go play overseas. But a huge majority never finish college period

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im glad the ones he was trying to get parents or advisors saw right through it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whelp. That fifteen minutes of fame just might be up. He'll never get the best players to attend his basketball school. Maybe he should just take a job as a high school coach instead...

  • Mark mcharm

    That is actually not a bad wage considering the NCAA pimp black men for nothing and will not give them any of the money for those huge tv contracts those crooks sign.

  • SpillyNillie

    Agreed...he's definitely extremely impulsive so I'm sure he's capable of all kinds of reckless behaviors.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    Right!! People don’t understand that part of I think he was trying to shed light that they have these boys play college ball for 4 years and that don’t mean they gone get drafted meanwhile the college made millions off of them and all they have is a broken down body yes a degree but that’s half the battle they still have to get hired the college coaches make million dollar salaries but those boys some of them struggling to pay for school there was a conversation and talks going on about paying college athletes but that quickly went away because GREED would never allow that to happen

  • Yoni7


  • i troll it like i see it

    I think he's trying to sabotage the kids on purpose, maybe not even knowingly. Basically I think he's not well.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I think the difference is the Kardashians were adults when Kris parlayed Kim's sex tape into a huge opportunity and Lavar Balls boys basically don't even have a choice but to do what daddy wants, when all this started.

  • Karen Brady

    Yeah but his lifetime of crazy ain't. I'm no reading a word of this.

  • Judi Lauren
  • Karen Brady

    Now I want to watch Mr. Ed.

  • Bossy704

    NO!!!! Why is he intent on running his mouth?

  • Vegas1989

    WHAT! Is it because his clothes too little?

  • SpillyNillie

    Why that guard didn't let Tip in?!?!

  • Yardgirl

    I hear ya but at the end of the day nothing beats a college education and even the best of the best is one injury away from career being over. Corporate America is making it harder and harder to get jobs and without a degree where you are not even a candidate for even consideration.

  • Yardgirl

    You got that right!! ????

  • Vegas1989

    He got arrested because he forgot his key into the gated community and the guard didn't let him in...So T.I. called a friend and the Po Po came....DUMMY!

  • Minkie Babie

    So many fatherless babies in here. How many complaints does GE or even forever 21 have. They just don't want him starting his own league. Black people be so happy when we fail. These whites laughing all the way to the bank.

  • Vegas1989

    Stupid Whackinghut Security Guard! Are they still in business? LOL I remembering them when I was a little girl...Mean @$$ guard.....

  • NaeNae2015


  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I'm past ready for him to go away. Be gone like a fart in the wind please.

  • Vegas1989

    My husband knows LaVar...SMH...They use to be boys before his sons got put on the map. Long Story...I'm glad that he don't associate with him..because I wouldn't have it..

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Pimpin aint easy huh Lavar. Stay in your delusional arse lane. You ruining opportunities for yourself as well as others. Fugg your own kids lives up if you want to but leave them other kids alone.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed


  • NY_bornNraised

    LMAO... that is all

  • shaybytheway

    Is that what this is? I thought he was creating optional income streams for young men to continue to chase their dream. How is this selling themselves short? NBA or bust? But why?

  • LeeSeeCee

    Lavar, these boys are going to DESPISE you shortly. The opportunities, both professional and monetary, that they will lose due to your outrageous behavior will leave you a bitter and broken man. You should have been comfortable teaching them how to maneuver through the game of bball and life. Instead you tried to LIVE life through them and PROFIT off of them at the same time. Didn't Richard Williams try this and the sisters cut him out? It is rare to see Richard at any match in the last several years or even mentioned by the sisters.

    If these boys are smart, ditch pops and hire a professional agent STAT. Make it clear via legal means that he is not to form his mouth around your name or your professional business without severe penalties. Try and salvage SOMETHING. Put your head down and play some damn good bball to show that you are as talented as your pops bragged. He needs to move to the side lines and have a stadium full of seats.

    Something about this feels so karmic... It seems running your mouth too much DOES have consequences, lol..

  • Justme

    He may have but he is a dweeb. He had a national platform for his brand. He messed that up. People were buying those shoes and he couldn’t deliver. And I’m talking about people with large audiences

  • Shira Harding-James

    I need to see some more commas and zeros sir!

  • Judi Lauren

    Yep... he would be the dummy for forgetting his keys...

  • Judi Lauren

    If I paid to live in that type of exclusive subdivision, I wouldn't be mad at him. I'd be mad at the police after proving I live there, and they lock me up anyway...

  • Bdot

    He'll be fine. LaMelo is the most talented son and barring injury, he's gonna be an NBA player and probably a lottery pick. Everybody loves to count this man's money. He really did his thing when you look at it. Most of the hate is just jealousy.

  • BadAss Will

    Ha all the talk he does about he and his sons are the best ever...??

  • Ms.Devereaux

    Oh yes you are correct about that! He had the right plan but the wrong execution of said plan

  • Alextra Ballard

    I know it's easier said than done but these young menzis need to grow some bigger balls and get rid of their father and allow someone else to manage their careers before they won't have a career to manage. They need an agent other than their angry,aggressive,unapproachable,lookin fartha. He's going to ruin his sons changes with that "it's either my way or the highway attitude".


    Really. Giving up your future and education for $3000 - $10,000. The NCAA may not pay but the education is there.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    I get your point. My stance is, that's not enough money to abort your college career. Neither is going to the NBA. That's not a career move. After about 30-35 is when life starts and where will you be if you entered the draft, got drafted and played a few years if you blew all your money due to being financially illiterate? You might as well went and finished school and got a life long career. Not one thats only as good as your last game.

  • Mark mcharm

    Most of them are only in college because of that dumb NBA rule i don't know too many teenagers making between 3grand -10 grand a month straight out hs as the first job you get in the real world.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Good. He has finally closed his flap.He talked way too much and he reminds me of a con artist.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    If only he had been humble his ideas would have went far

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Not true. Wipipo either start their own businesses or go to school . My daughter went to school, started a business, then tried to finish school. The counselor told her..why are you here when your business is already making 5 figures (about 20 yrs ago). She couldn't finish her degree because of business interruptions. Her business as grown very well. Her hubby has the degree but they are in business together.

  • Yardgirl

    What did I say that was not true?

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Did the barbque lady call the po po on him?

  • Logan Roberts

    God will humble?

  • Ryan

    They would've been locked into those contracts for a certain number of years, unable to play in the NBA, and by the time they got out of that bootleg league the NBA would have already moved on to younger players.

  • Mark mcharm

    No it is for 4 years or less the same as a college career it actually is a good idea without lavar ball attached to it. because the colleges are using these kids and the system is not fair you know they can get in trouble for someone buying them chinese food.

  • dontgetblocked

    Good thing he married that white woman. She can deal with that disaster of a man.

  • Ryan

    Oh I know, there was one who got in trouble because they bought him cream cheese for his bagel. The bagel was OK but not the extra charge for CREAM CHEESE. SMH. I think they should be paying these young dudes but the NCAA is a machine that only wants to profit off of the very talent they resent them for.

  • Tlowe89

    So you gone pay them $3000 to drop out of school and play ball for a non major league and ????? Who knows how that’ll go.... and that $3000 will run out quick. Hell then kids probably didn’t want to drop out because they were probably thinking I can make that much or more in a month if I finish school and if I get to go to the pros.... $3000, chump change. Whose throwing there life away form 3 stacks

  • Jamal Warner

    Suspect white supremacist and coons seem to be the main culprits in attacking a strong black father who wants the best for his children. When non-white people do what he does, they are praised, but when a melaninated man does it, automatically he is hated. He is hated because he became a success without seeking acceptance from white mommy and daddy. If white mommy and daddy does not approve, then coons will not approve. Levar did it on his own and independent and that should be commended.

  • Malcom Flex

    Face only a fug low self esteem white braud can love. Abusive father to his sons.

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL he's a stone cold coon who breed with a fug white braud and his sons MIXED not black.

  • Malcom Flex

    He a koon who breed on purpose to create MIXED SONS with a fug AF white braud. Yall be confused AF about what is "Black" and his sons are not black they MIXED

  • J2PC

    The less educated athletes & rappers get taken advantage of financially. The goal is often to keep them out of worthwhile course so that they'll end up dumber, ignorant, if not hooked on drugs while being distracted by groupies, skrippers & mindless garbage. -meanwhile...others are robbin' the hood.

  • Soon2BWife

    Yo! Because I’m petty, I clicked on over to the Better Business Bureau so I could see the rating for myself. Customer said that when you ask for a refund you get called a “small baller” ????.

  • Solstice


  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I completely agree that EDUCATION is key ESPECIALLY for us as Black people. So many references are made as to what white people can & do, but it's because they take time to learn (degree or not) for the most part.

    You don't necessarily need a Degree to make it, but you DO need to educate yourself.

  • AveIvy

    That's because he lacks the skills to execute, anyone can dream but can you bring it all into fruition. He can't. People will forgive you when you admit to wrongdoings but when his kid became a thief in China and didn't take the bench that semester as punishment, it not only sent the wrong message to his teammates but he also spit in the face of an institution that many only dream of attending.

  • Trace da Ace

    HA HA HA!! Knew his ass could not cash checks his big mouth was shouting....and he has basically destroyed his sons careers....all over what? this is a real version of "when keeping it real, goes wrong".

  • Soon2BWife

    ? Don’t forget she is Leeegally blind and can only beerley see. P.O.P, all da time! Pimp Squad, Baby!! Mama, I luh you! I love me some Donna Goodeau me and Mr. Soon still walk around quoting her from time to time.

  • the watcher

    well i'm glad. now go sit your big chin azz down somewhere and let your kid's do their thing..

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    You said nothing beats a college education.

  • Stacey J

    I can't follow the story for trying to keep all the L names straight.

  • Kc

    Yes, but if you play for a college you can get a free degree. Which they could use to earn more money long term. However, the guys only focus on the NBA

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    the youngest one already appears to dislike him

  • Ms.Devereaux

    You couldn’t get a scholarship to play yes you are correct but what happens when they get hurt? They have a lifetime of medical bills that their degree may not pay for meanwhile they can’t even sell their jerseys or autographs while playing but the school can sell jerseys and make money off of them I’m sorry it’s not right those boy should get some type of payment for their hard work especially since the colleges and the coaches are

  • chris

    What education are you getting when you barely have time to attend classes? I went to a d1 the athletes almost never show up..

  • Storm’s Rage!

    Well, at least they would be getting an education if they go to college. Instead of getting hurt before they even get a chance to really do something professional and that includes playing for a good over sea league.

  • Mark mcharm

    Nah those children are not cattle they need to get some money if they want them to stay in college regular students can get a job they are not allowed to work while playing .
