LaVar Ball Compared Sons To MJ & Magic, & Said Steve Kerr Is The ‘Milli Vanilli of Coaching’ (VIDEO)
You just knew once LaVar Ball got a taste of professional coaching, it would only add to his massive ego and more things would come spewing out of his mouth to make headlines.
After his recent head coaching success, the outspoken father continued his claims about his basketball playing sons, comparing LiAngelo and LaMelo to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson. During an interview with BasketNews’ Jonas Miklovas, the CEO of Big Baller Brand suggested that the approach Phil Jackson had with Michael Jordan and Pat Riley had with Magic is comparable to how he plans to coach his sons to success.
“What Coach Phil did, back up, Michael Jordan’s the superstar, you can’t coach him. Pat Riley, back up, let Magic do what he do. He’s a champion,” LaVar said. “How do you coach these guys? You don’t. They something special. You let them do what they do.
“Melo is in that same book. Gelo is in that same [book]. They something special. So I just back up, tell them go get the victory and come on back home.”
“You can stand in that same spot and win twenty something games like Luke Walton did when you got the right horses that’s running,” he said. “As soon as he wins the championship, then everyone says he is a good coach.”
He also took some time to call Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, “the Milli Vanilli of coaching.”
