    LaVar Ball has another message for the Lakers: If you want to keep Lonzo, you’ll need to take his brothers, too. The outspoken, media-seeking father of the rookie point guard is adamant about seeing Lonzo’s lesser-talented younger brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, join him in the NBA, and seems willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. “I want all three boys to play for the Lakers,” LaVar told Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas. “But if that does not happen, I’m telling you the story [of] what’s gonna happen first. If they don’t take Gelo this year, I bring back...

    The Big Baller Brand website is jammed with $50 T-shirts and $60 hats, the cornerstone of a business that outspoken founder LaVar Ball says is competing with big-name athletic apparel brands. But the Chino company responsible for screen-printing and embroidering the hats, T-shirts and other high-priced apparel sold by Big Baller Brand claims it hasn’t been paid.

    One cannot overlook the irony of a business which shares the initials of the Better Business Bureau, getting an “F” rating from the nation’s premier advocate of marketplace trust. However, that’s exactly what happened to LaVar Ball’s Big Baller Brand.

    Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball bought his parents a Rolls-Royce for Christmas, which I’m pretty sure fulfills a Christmas wish LaVar Ball made when he and wife Tina had their first son 20 years ago.

    LaVar Ball told ESPN that his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have signed with agent Harrison Gaines, ending any speculation that LaMelo will play college basketball. The plan is now for both to play on the same team overseas. "I don't care about the money," LaVar Ball said on Thursday morning. "I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time. The priority is for the boys to play on the same team."

    A father who didn’t think a couple high school basketball coaches were qualified to coach his sons isn’t stopping with the professionals. It took less than five weeks into Lonzo Ball’s rookie season for LaVar Ball to blame the Lakers’ coaching staff for not translating his son’s talent into production. Naturally, the basketball dad pumped himself up as the man for the job. “They’re soft. They don’t know how to coach my son,” LaVar Ball said of the Lakers staff in a recent interview with Bleacher Report. “I know how to coach him. I tell him to go get the...

    The eccentric basketball family bring their Big Baller Brand to Tsim Sha Tsui as hundreds line up to hand over their cash – but questions about LiAngelo’s detainment in China are ignored. [snip] LaVar eventually turned up 20 minutes late, flanked by his burly security guards and choosing not to respond to questions about his other son, LiAngelo ball – the UCLA basketball star who was detained on suspicion of shoplifting with two teammates in Hangzhou last week. “What do you think about Donald Trump helping with LiAngelo?” one reporter asked Big Baller Brand manager and Lavar associate Alan Foster,...

The three, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley and LiAngelo Ball — younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — also apologized to their families and their school, while thanking the Chinese cops for treating them well. “I would like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help they provided. I am grateful to be back home and I will never make a mistake like this again. I...

    We love the Can Cannon! Heck, everyone loves the Can Cannon. We’re on record as saying it’s the best fun-gun ever! So, we were incredibly perturbed to learn that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives recently issued a letter on the Can Cannon saying that when it is affixed to a rifle receiver it is considered a (SBR) or short barrel rifle and when place on a pistol it becomes an (AOW) Any Other Weapon. Now, by itself, the Can Cannon is not a firearm or a controlled item. But the minute it is put on a rifle...

    The NFL has confirmed it is looking into charges the New England Patriots cheated Sunday night when they clinched a trip to the Super Bowl Sunday night by using deflated footballs. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed the probe Monday, following the AFC championship game, in which the Patriots demolished the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7. The charge was first made Sunday night, when an Indianapolis reporter that the NFL had seized at least one game ball from the AFC championship game to examine whether pigskins were intentionally deflated to make them easier to throw and catch. “The NFL is investigating the possibility,”...
