Lavar Ball, the father of basketball player Lonzo Ball, is a figure on the news circuit right now, mainly on account of the pair of pricey shoes he’s selling — the ZO2 — with Birdman and Kanye West. Ball’s claim-to-fame so far has been being a watch-phobic dad for his three kids, but the hype around the shoes has grown rapidly.
all played basketball and football while at Canoga Park High School, going on to play basketball at the collegiate level for West Los Angeles College, Washington State and Cal State Los Angeles. He also played football at Long Beach City College for a season. He had a brief professional career as a tight end with the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football, where he had a total of 28 kickoff return yards, and no receptions. He was a practice squad member of the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers in 1995, but never played an official regular season game in the National Football League
Following a series of bold statements in the spring of 2017, Ball began repeatedly making national sports headlines. His early remarks included saying that his son Lonzo is better than Stephen Curry and claiming that he himself could defeat Michael Jordan one-on-one in basketball. He was subject to both praise and criticism as he continued making similar comments, some of which involved his company, Big Baller Brand. Ball has made several appearances on national TV and has routinely drawn attention from major sports media outlets. He has also been in the spotlight for his criticism of his sons' teams, most notably the Lakers for their treatment of Lonzo, as well as for his exchange with U.S. President Donald Trump after LiAngelo was detained in China for shoplifting.
There was a time when you couldn't turn on a day-time sports television show without seeing LaVar Ball. Maybe he was live on the show, or maybe the commentators were just discussing something outlandish Ball had said, but he was there.
LaVar Ball has always been a man of extreme ambitions. Ever since his first son, Lonzo, made his way to the league, LaVar has been front and center in the media, trying to generate hype and fame for his family and his brand. (Source: fadeawayworld.net)
