Sports dad, LaVar Ball, claimed that his son, Lonzo, will be a major star in the NBA and that he is a much better player than professional basketball player, Stephen Curry.
His son is currently a UCLA freshman and runs his own clothing line called Big Baller Brand where he sells t-shirts for around $60.
Ball’s proclamations were deemed frivolous by Charles Barkley, which then created a small dispute between the two.
“If Charles thought like me, maybe he’d win a championship,” Lavar said.
In an attempt to end the disagreement by making his opinion clear and honest, Barkley said, “His son’s life is his life, not yours. No matter what he’s trying to accomplish, it’s not his.”
LaVar always wanted the best for his son, from making sure Lonzo spent enough hours in the gym to practicing on the courts. Lonzo’s father even said that his son could beat Michael Jordan “one-on-one in his heyday.”
But LaVar Ball is not the only devoted sports dad out there.
Back in the 2012 London Olympics, Chad Le Clos beat Michael Phelps in the 200m butterfly and Le Clos’s father didn’t let that win easily slip away. Bert Le Clos was shown on television screens wildly gesturing to his son and later in an interview said, “I have never been so happy in my life…It’s like I have died and gone to heaven. Whatever happens in my life from now on, it is plain sailing.”
LaVar Balls continues to hold a strong stance against the criticism aimed at him and the belief in his son’s success is truly ‘unconditional.’
