Charles Barkley Claps Back at LaVar Ball: ‘STFU, Your Son’s Life Is His Life. Not Yours’ (Video)
Earlier today, LaVar Ball, the son of UCLA phenom Lonzo Ball, went on Tuesday’s edition of ‘The Herd’ and responded to Charles Barkley comments about having an issue with him saying that his son is better than Steph Curry.
“You can’t say a guy is going to be better than Steph Curry, a guy who has played 30 college games. I know you can be proud of your son, but at some point, it becomes stupidity.”

Not one to be outdone, Barkley has since responded back to LaVar’s clap back, even stating he’s the reason why parents should never be interviewed.
“Your son’s life is his life. It’s not yours. No matter what his son accomplishes, it’s not his. So I wish his son nothing but the best. The kid’s a hell of a player. But I don’t like when parents interject. It’s not your life. It’s their life. My daughter’s a great person. She goes to Columbia Grad School right now. That’s her accomplishment. I prepared her for the world. Now she’s on her own.
I don’t even think we should be interviewing people’s parents. I have very strict rules in my family. Shut the f*** up. I’m the one who’s doing this. He can be proud of his kid, but I didn’t win a championship. I’m all right. I will compare my exploits to Mr. Ball’s any time.”
