LaVar Ball Says He Told His Son LiAngelo He Wasn’t Talented Enough To Make The NBA
You can work hard at something for most of your life and still not achieve what you want. But sometimes you just have to accept that whatever it is just isn’t for you.
The seldom talked about middle son from the Ball family, LiAngelo Ball, doesn’t the have the highlight reel of his older brother Lonzo or his younger brother LaMelo. And he will unfortunately come short of his dream of making it to the NBA, at least according to his father LaVar Ball.
LaVar explains what he told his middle child about his career and what he could do for money when basketball doesn’t work out for him.
“I told my boys that one of them wasn’t going to make it. Because if you’ve got three, only one, maybe two make it to the NBA.” He says, right in front of everyone, that he thinks it’ll be his middle son, LiAngelo, who doesn’t make it. He says he’s told him that. “He’s going to be taken care of either way,” he says. At least Gelo is the handsomest of his sons, he says—if basketball doesn’t work out, maybe he could be a model.
Tina says: “All my boys are handsome.”
LaVar says Melo, with his curly blond hair and highlight-reel game, has the most star power. Tina says: “They all have star power.”
Straight to the point.
