Lonzo Ball's father blames 'three white guys' for UCLA loss

Fox scores career-high 39 points to lead Wildcats past UCLA Lonzo Ball's father blames 'three white guys' for UCLA loss
Craig Ferguson | 09 April, 2017, 03:09

Ball's comments appeared to be a reference to UCLA starters TJ Leaf, Thomas Welsh and Bryce Alford, the son of coach Steve Alford.

One might hope, for Lonzo Ball's sake, that he ends up getting drafted by a team all the way on the East Coast (hello, Brooklyn) so that he doesn't have to be around LaVar as much at the pro level. Alford will graduate UCLA as the fifth-leading scorer in school history.

On Thursday, Ball offered an eyebrow-raising explanation for that 86-75 setback, in which Lonzo had one of the poorest games of his otherwise sensational freshman season, scoring 10 points, with eight assists and four turnovers.

"It turned out that was the one game [against Kentucky]".

The news aggregation and discussion website installed a filter on their College Basketball page to auto-remove any submitted story about LaVar Ball. LiAngelo is a senior at Chino Hills High who has signed a letter of intent to play for UCLA next season, and LaMelo is a sophomore who has also committed to play for the Bruins.

Lonzo, in an appearance on ESPN's "The Jump" recently, said he had no problem with it, as LeBron is his favourite player. He said his sons are worth a $1 billion shoe deal, claimed Lonzo is better than Steph Curry and said he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one in Jordan's prime.

And because of the elder Ball saying dumb thing after dumb thing, everything Lonzo says is getting viewed with greater scrutiny.

Thanks to an incredible tank job by the Phoenix Suns, who have now lost 13 straight games, plus some unexpected wins for the Lakers, the chances of landing a top-three pick have plummeted to just 47 percent. "Continue to work hard and make your mark in the game, and I wish you the best". Without confidence, athletes can't succeed. Assuming the Lakers get the no. 3 pick in the lottery, then Ball may already be gone by the time the Hollywood squad is on the clock. Is it really that shocking or repulsive that a star basketball player wants to play for his hometown team? "I feel like I'm more of a true point guard, I like to get my teammates involved". I'll say it again. Like I said, I stated my opinion of what I thought.
