In recent months a crazy basketball dad by the name of LaVar Ball has made his way onto every single persons televisions, computers and brains. The worst part? He’s here to stay.
The father of UCLA star Lonzo Ball and future UCLA Bruins LiAngelo Ball and LaMelo Ball, LaVar has made a name for himself in the sports world. Often said to be a “marketing genius,” he might be the best thing that’s happened to basketball this year. Regardless, of his bold statements and antics he is still driving traffic and more attention to an already highly followed sport.
WHO IS LAVAR BALL?
LaVar Ball is a dad from Chino Hills, Ca where he lives with his wife Tina and three basketball-playing children. LaVar is from the Los Angeles area where he played college basketball at West Los Angeles College before transferring to Washington State. Lavar was a forward unlike any of his kids who play the guard positions at Washington State he averaged 2.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game, in 36 games. As a starter. Big numbers right!? Lavar claims, he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one match up… Just another statement by Lavar LOL.
