Lonzo Ball’s Father: ‘He’s Going To Be Better Than Steph Curry’ (Video)
Doesn’t matter if what they’re saying is true or not, parents will always be the biggest supporters of their children. But LaVar Ball, the father of UCLA phenom Lonzo Ball, takes it to a whole other level.
“You can’t compare my boy to anyone,” the elder Ball told TMZ Sports. “I’m going to tell you this, you say he’s like Jason Kidd, but he’s taller than Jason Kidd. He jumps better than Jason Kidd. He’s longer than Jason Kidd. He’s got a better shot than Jason Kidd.”
Kidd is an NBA champion, a 10-time All-Star, and two-time Olympic gold medalist. That wasn’t too bad or outlandish, but he didn’t stop there as he continued to reach for the sky when talking about his son.
“He’s going to be better than Steph Curry in the NBA,” Ball deadpanned. “… My son is young, he’s got time to grow. You only consider (Curry) good because he’s won a couple of championships … he’s made some shots at the right time … but he’s not as young as my boy.”
“You’re not going to be able to say this until my boy has ended his career,” Ball continued, “then they’re going to look back and say, ‘Man, how did Lavar know all of this?'”
