LaVar Ball is making demands.
The basketball stage dad thinks a shoe company should pay his three sons a billion dollars for a joint deal.
Son number one Lonzo Ball is a freshman at UCLA and expected to be one of the top 3 picks in the 2017 NBA draft. LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball are in high school
“A billion dollars, it has to be there,’’ Dad said. “That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years.’’Such a deal is a long way off. Although we guess we can't say it's out of the question, with Lebron having signed a billion dollar long term deal with Nike.
However, Papa Ball sounded straight up delusional when he compared his own ball talents to GOAT Michael Jordan.
“I would just back (Jordan) in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left,’’ Ball said. “He cannot stop me one-on-one. He better make every shot ’cause he can’t go around me. He’s not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim.’’ “Now in a game of five-on-five, (Jordan) might do some damage, but I’m going to do some damage too,’’ Ball added.Ball, who is 6'6, played one year of Division 1 college ball for Washington State, averaging 2.2 points and 2.3 rebounds during the 1987-1988 season.
