WATCH: Video surfaces of LaVar Ball highlights from college

Safe to say, LaVar’s three sons are better hoopers than their dad.

The entire Ball family has game.

Well, kind of.

On Tuesday, a video surfaced online of college basketball highlights from LaVar Ball’s days at Washington State.

Not sure that I’d call these ‘highlights’ as all we saw from LaVar was some running around and arguing with the ref, which is the least bit surprising.

Now, at least we saw a lot of moving without the basketball without any demands calling for the ball. I’m proud of you, LaVar.

In 26 games in the 1987-88 season for the Cougars, Ball averaged 2.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Check out the highlights below via the League Alerts YouTube page.

LaVar says Zach LaVine is gone: ‘He don’t want to play second fiddle’

Could LaVine leave Chicago for Los Angeles?

I’ve always wondered what a GM would think whenever LaVar Ball would playing phantom GM for his son’s team.

Well, LaVar’s back at it again.

In an interview with David Kaplan of NBCS Chicago, LaVar spoke about Zach LaVine’s upcoming unrestricted free agency and had thoughts on if his son’s teammate would be returning to Chicago.

“He’s gone and I’m going to tell you why. It started off ‘Zach LaVine, Zach LaVine, Zach LaVine’. Now you get hurt and a few things happen and guess who’s doing all the big plays? All I hear is DeMar,” LaVar said. “He don’t want to play second fiddle.”

LaVar says Lonzo and LaMelo ‘are going to play together’

The fearless leader of Big Baller Brand is speaking his sons playing together into existence.

LaVar Ball the philsopher, everyone.

The father of NBA stars Lonzo and LaMelo, along with G League player LiAngelo, LaVar is hellbent on one thing: having all three of his sons play together again.

He was close to getting two as LiAngelo played for the Hornets’ G League affiliate this season, the Greensboro Swarm, but never got the call up to the big leagues to join LaMelo.

But, as David Kaplan of NBCS Chicago asked him, LaVar is confident in his boys reuniting on the same team some day.

“I’m going to speak it into existence, they are going to play together,” LaVar said. “All three of my boys — not just two. All three of three and you’re going to see a show that you’ve never seen before.”

LaVar Ball on Lonzo’s rehab: the Bulls ‘trained him the wrong way’

In LaVar’s opinion, the Bulls rushed Lonzo back too fast from his surgery.

LaVar Ball is back.

The father of Bulls guard Lonzo Ball and Hornets star LaMelo Ball has been relatively quiet since Lonzo departed Los Angeles but don’t let that fool you: LaVar always has something to say.

Whether it’s about his two NBA star sons, Big Baller Brand, or how his middle son, LiAngelo, deserves a shot in the league, LaVar will let you know how he feels and is forever himself.

Ball recently spoke with David Kaplan of NBCS Sports to discuss a number of topics, including the recent report of the Bulls having ‘serious concerns’ regarding Lonzo’s knee.

“He’s going to be fine. Here’s the thing: Zo’s going to do whatever it takes for him to do what he’s got to do. When they did the meniscus tear a long time ago, they just tried to let it heal. They should have cut that out the first time so he wouldn’t have to go back in there and then he ends up tearing it again.”

LaVar Ball: Hornets ‘don’t understand what they got’ in LiAngelo

LaVar is ready for LiAngelo to join LaMelo on the Charlotte Hornets.

LaVar Ball is at it again.

The Big Baller Brand CEO spoke with TMZ on Friday and had some things to say about his son LiAngelo not getting called up the Hornets yet.

“They don’t understand what they got,” LaVar said. “They need to go ahead and let my boy play.”

LiAngelo is currently playing for the Hornets G League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm, but there’s been no indication that he’ll get called up to the Hornets roster anytime soon.

“I dropped them a superstar in the G League and they don’t know what to do with him,” Ball said.

LiAngelo is averaging 9.6 points on 35% shooting from 3-point range in five games with the Swarm, including a 22-point debut.

LaVar stated that he thinks LiAngelo will get called up to the NBA this season, but if not, he has another NBA team in mind for his middle son to play for.

“I already said the Lakers but they got rid of Zo. Then I said Charlotte — y’all got him right in your backdoor. Bring him in and let him play with Melo! Now, I got a new destination — L.A. Clippers.”

Lavar Ball announces new Big Baller Brand luxury lifestyle shoe

Big Baller Brand is back like it never left!

Long live Big Baller Brand.

On Tuesday, Lavar Ball announced on his Instagram that Big Baller Brand has a new luxury lifestyle shoe available for purchase.

Lavar opened his announcement video with an ode to Charles Barkley’s old Nike commercial, stating he, unlike what Barkley said, is a ‘role model.’

Per Nick DePaula of ESPN, the new luxury lifestyle shoe starts at $695 or for $895, you can get your hands on the “I Told You So” theme.

Though Lonzo now wears Nike and LaMelo has an endorsement deal, and now his own signature shoe, with Puma, Lavar is still cranking out BBB merchandise and shoes.

You can hate the player but don’t hate the game because Lavar Ball did indeed tell us so.

LaVar Ball sports ‘I Told You So!’ hat at LiAngelo’s debut

Check out the hat worn by LaVar Ball in support of LiAngelo at Summer League.

LaVar Ball spoke it into existence — almost.

With his middle son, LiAngelo, playing for the Charlotte Hornets Summer League team, LaVar is on the cusp of having all three of his sons in the NBA.

LiAngelo has had a few opportunities to get his foot in the league’s door, yet COVID-19 and an ankle injury put his NBA dreams on hold over the last two seasons.

But, with an impressive showing in Summer League with the Hornets, LiAngelo could find himself on the Hornets roster alongside his younger brother, LaMelo.

Sitting court side at Summer League to watch LiAngelo, LaVar Ball sported a ‘I Told You So!’ Big Baller Brand hat to show the world that he was right all along about his three boys.

Check out the image below posted by Boardroom’s Twitter page.

WATCH: LaVar Ball reacts to LiAngelo hitting 3-pointer against Blazers

LiAngelo’s father celebrates court side as he nails a 3-pointer in Summer League.

Typically, the NBA Summer League is headlined by the top rookies in that year’s draft class.

This summer, that remains true but LiAngelo Ball has become one of the spectacles in Las Vegas this year.

Through two games with the Charlotte Hornets SL team, Ball is averaging 13 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.0 steals per game on 50% shooting from the floor and 50% from 3-point range.

In Sunday’s loss to the Trail Blazers, Ball scored 16 points on 5-of-8 from downtown. Following one of those hits from behind the arc, LaVar Ball, sitting court side, jumped up in celebration for his son.

Check out LaVar’s reaction below in the video posted by NBA Summer League’s Twitter.

WATCH: Big Baller Brand Drew League team wins on buzzer-beating alley-oop

Big Baller Brand picked up their first win in the Drew League in dramatic fashion this weekend with a game-winning alley-oop.

Big Baller Brand’s Drew League experience wasn’t a great one through the first two weeks of the season with a pair of losses, but that changed on Sunday. Facing off against Problems, a fellow winless team, BBB trailed after each of the first three quarters but did not trail when it mattered most.

Down a point in the final seconds and in-bounding the ball on the sideline, BBB completed a memorable win and comeback with an alley-oop to former JBA standout Curtis Hollis for his 36th points of the night, sealing an 81-80 win for the first victory of the season.

Hollis, as noted, played not just in the JBA but with the JBA Select Team that toured Europe with LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball. However, like the league in general, once LaMelo returned to America and SPIRE Institute, Hollis faded out of the spotlight.

Since the JBA folded, Hollis joined the Dragons Rhöndorf of the German ProB league in 2019 where he averaged 22.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 3.0 steals per game in 18 games.

On Sunday, he added 13 rebounds to his 36 points for an impressive double-double.

WATCH: LaVar Ball featured on Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segment

LaVar Ball made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segment on Tuesday to joke about his….dental hygiene?

One of the more enjoyable semi-regular NBA-related segments has been Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets bits. Every few months on Jimmy Kimmel Live, pandemic pending, the show will welcome on NBA players and those associated with the league to read mean tweets from random Twitter accounts and get a raw reaction.

On Tuesday night, Kimmel revived the segment and included LaVar Ball, who was one of the first ones to read a tweet directed at his dental hygiene. To Ball’s credit, his reaction is both funny and remarkably on-brand to his lavish Big Baller Brand lifestyle.

Also included was Lonzo Ball’s Pelicans teammate Brandon Ingram, who is featured much later in the video and reads a tweet about how skinny he is, a criticism and joke made about him predating his time in the NBA.

Credit to all who take part in the segments though as everyone took the tweets in stride and laughed them off.
