He probably doesn’t mean it, but this is the reason some people can’t stand LaVar Ball.
TMZ Sports caught up with DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins who had an interesting opinion on the two current faces of the Ball family.
While he called LaVar Ball, the outspoken father with a penchant for making absurd statements a “legend,” he denied knowing about UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball’s existence at all.
Obviously, he knows who Lonzo Ball is. But the fact that he had praise of LaVar and had nothing to say about Lonzo affirms what many people have held as fact for some time: LaVar is doing more harm than good.
Currently, LaVar Ball is the most publicized name heading into the NBA draft.
Meanwhile his son, a highly talented basketball player from UCLA, has taken a backseat to his fathers self-glorification.
It’s a sad consequence of his fathers egomania that makes Lonzo look like nothing more than a basketball dribbling sideshow in his fathers three ring circus. (One ring for each son). Of course, LaVar will have to do this kind of publicity tour two more times with the next two sons. He’s already exhausted a lot of the outrageous claims to be had on Lonzo.
As LaVar readies himself for the transition from stage-parent to sports agent, one wonders if the public will want to ride his outrageous rollercoaster another two times.
