Just randomly on Thursday night, Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster debuted his YouTube channel and gave his account of what happened between him, LaVar Ball and Lonzo Ball, who is currently suing him for alleged money laundering.
Foster states in the video that he told Lonzo to get surgery after a specialist in Cleveland told Lonzo he had torn ligaments in his ankle. But it would be the Lakers warning him that his contract could be voided if he got the unauthorized procedure done. He accused the Lakers’ negligence that resulted in a season-ending injury for Ball, not the Big Baller Brand sneakers.
“Lonzo and D-mo called me to setup an appointment with a specialist to take a look at his ankles. I made some phone calls and there’s a specialist I had gotten pretty close with in Ohio while we had Melo out there. We fly Lonzo and D-Mo out there and had an MRI and an X-Ray on Lonzo’s ankle and the MRI showed that he has torn ligaments on his ankle. Nobody knows that he has torn ligaments.
IF Lonzo doesn’t get surgery they’re going to have another season with the New Orleans Pelicans and he’s going to get injured again.”
Foster also accused LaVar Ball of overworking all three Ball brothers and not training them properly.
“It’s LaVar’s fault for driving him into the ground when he was a kid. He had the boys running on cement, running hills on concrete. Can you imagine the damage that does on your knees? On your ankles? And then, when they play in the game — whether it’s AAU, high school —LaVar requested that they stayed in the full game with no breaks, no rest. So, Lonzo’s 21 years old but his ankles are really like 31 years old.”
Foster said LiAngelo Ball had the same problem, but he opted to undergo surgery. Foster intends to post new videos every week that detail what really happened between him and the Ball family.
