LaVar Ball Says Lakers Will Beat The Warriors in Conference Finals This Year & Win Title
It seems like it’s been a while since we’ve heard an insane prediction from LaVar Ball. The country has sort of been enamored with the recent protests during the National Anthem, so the Ball Family has been forced to take a backseat.
That all changed when Big Baller Brand CEO LaVar Ball spoke with CBS Sports. He not only predicted Lonzo Ball will lead the Los Angeles Lakers to the playoffs, but also a Western Conference Finals victory over the Golden State Warriors as well as an NBA Title.
“I’ve got a vision for this year,” LaVar said Thursday on the “Flagrant Two” podcast, according to Colin Ward-Henninger of CBS Sports. “(The Lakers) are gonna win them 50 games, and they gonna get in them playoffs, and the story that’s gonna be for L.A. is Steve Kerr versus Luke Walton. That’s gonna be a hell of an L.A. story, because he don’t want that matchup. Luke know them tendencies, for that type of team. He knows ’em. And then there’s another big story that y’all gonna have: The bigmouth father LaVar said his son was better than Steph Curry – now let’s see!
“If they get them suckers in the Western Conference finals, the Lakers are gonna get them. And when they get to the Finals, my son ain’t gonna lose.”
That would be a huge turnaround for a team that only won 26 games last season. Maybe he meant the following season, when LeBron reportedly joins the Lakers in free agency?
