When the Lakers drafted UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, they knew they would have to put up with the antics of his father, LaVar.
The elder Ball has never been shy, and after his son's most recent disappointing performances, he had some choice words.
Lonzo has been shooting the ball pretty terribly and has been unable to score for the most part, and it has raised questions. But LaVar thinks he has the answer.
Ball thinks that the Lakers' rotation is why his son has struggled to score so far in his NBA career.
"Let him play the whole fourth quarter and bet you'll always win. He'll get into a better flow," Ball told Bleacher Report. "The in and out, sitting out six to 10 minutes? He's not going to take no shots because he's not in the flow. He don't want to hurt the team by shooting."
It's no surprise that Ball would eventually criticize the Lakers.
He never held back his opinions while Lonzo was at UCLA, and won't now that his son is on one of the most recognizable teams in the world. Let's see how often he speaks up for the rest of the season.
My guess is he'll say something controversial by the end of this week.
