LaVar Ball quotes

Usually a kid with that type of talent comes out of a lower-income neighborhood, and then you put all this pressure on an 18-year-old kid to make it and get us out of there. But I don't need Lonzo to hurry up and move me out of Chino Hills. I'm not tired of all these hills and pools.feedback

I gave an opinion on what I felt about no superstars' kids really being superstars and the fact that they have to live up to their parents or to their fathers or whatever. I have yet to see one, and I've been around for 50 years. Have you seen one where the superstar's son is just as good or better than him? I said a superstar. I ain't saying just a regular player. I'm talking about a guy who we picture as an icon – a Dr. J, an Allen Iverson, a LeBron James. If somebody asks me a question, I'm gonna give them an answer.feedback

The monsters in the NBA, their dads wasn't that good. They were OK, they was players, but the fact that the old [Dell] Curry wasn't no All-Star, he wasn't cold. He could shoot the ball, though. Kobe Bryant, his dad wasn't all that, that's why he's such a monster.feedback

You got LeBron, it's going to be hard for his kids because they are going to look at them like, You got to be just like your dad.' And after a while, that pressure starts sitting on you like, Why do I got to be just like him? What can't I just be me?' And then they are going to be like, Aw, you're soft, you're not that good.' Because the expectation is very, very high.feedback

He wants to play one-and-one and all this, and he says I averaged two points – who cares? I know he don't want to play one-on-one because he's too big. He'd better stay behind at TNT and eat them doughnuts.feedback

That boy is out of shape – if I played him now, it'd kill him. He's too big. Just enjoy talking and eating Krispy Kreme doughnuts, he'll be fine. … If we played right now, he wouldn't score a bucket. He's too slow, he can't walk – I mean, what's he going to do?feedback

He's not my favorite player now. Not because I don't like him. It's because my boys are my favorite players now. He'll be all right, though. … I'll send him some Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and he'll be my friend again.feedback

My sons are good, they're great. But let's say I really excelled in football and made millions of millions of dollars. Do I spent that time with them now? No, I have to worry about the offseason, and I just buy you a trainer and hope that you turn out okay. Whereas the fact that I wasn't all that, allows me to take the time to make my boys all that.feedback

Here's the thing, you gotta play the odds and the percentages. There's been a lot of great players, and all of their sons are wack. … Kareem's got sons, Jordan's got sons, Shaq's got sons.feedback

As you get older, you get delusional. Thinking he could be beat me now, he's gotta be crazy.feedback

I would just back in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left. He cannot stop me one-on-one. A billion dollars, it has to be there. That's our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don't even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years.feedback

You got the best point guard ever in Magic Johnson. … Magic is the guard who can put his arm around my boy and say, Do it like this.' … He throws those long passes like Magic. He makes everyone better.feedback

You only get burned out if it's not a passion. My boys aren't playing to make the money at basketball. They just want to be the best players anywhere, where people say, Oh, my gosh, have you seen them?' They treat it like entertainment. … They're thinking we're going to go out and score 100-and-something. See if you can catch us. They're just having a fun time. That's why I've always taught them to play until the clock says zero.feedback
