LaVar Ball doubles down on claim that Lonzo is better than Stephen Curry

  LaVar Ball doubles down on claim that Lonzo is better than Stephen Curry LaVar Ball is at it again. The Warriors squared off against the Lakers at Staples Center on Wednesday, which gave Papa Ball another shot to be in the spotlight, and he made the most of it. Ball, earlier in the year, boldly stated that his son, Lonzo, is a better player than Stephen Curry. He apparently still believes that.

LaVar Ball says his son Lonzo will leave the Lakers if they don't also sign Lonzo 's younger brothers , who are currently playing in Lithuania. LaVar Ball is determined to see all three of his sons play together on the same NBA team — preferably for the Lakers — and is already making threats to try

LaVar Ball has a master plan of getting all three of his sons on the same NBA team, and it could According to LaVar, Lonzo won't re- sign with a team unless his two brothers are with him. Even if the two sides don't agree to an extension, he would only become a restricted free agent at that point

LOS ANGELES — The Ball family's brief association with college basketball is over.

According to LaVar Ball, his younger sons LiAngelo and LaMelo have signed with an agent, ensuring neither will play in the college ranks. The elder Ball told ESPN on Thursday that his plan is for the teenagers to play on the same team overseas.

Oldest brother Lonzo is the only Ball brother to have played in college, completing one season at UCLA before entering the NBA draft and being taken by the Los Angeles Lakers.

LaVar Ball Withdraws LiAngelo Ball From UCLA Without Playing a Game

  LaVar Ball Withdraws LiAngelo Ball From UCLA Without Playing a Game LiAngelo Ball has withdrawn from the UCLA men's basketball team upon request of his father, Lavar, according to TMZ Sports and ESPN. "We are exploring other options with Gelo," LaVar Ball told ESPN's Jeff Goodman. "He's out of there."LiAngelo Ball, 18, was in his freshman year but did not play a game for the Bruins. He was one of three players suspended indefinitely after being arrested for shoplifting on a trip to China before the team's season opener against Georgia Tech.LiAngelo is the brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, who played just one season at UCLA before declaring for the NBA draft.

With the younger Ball brothers signing with Lonzo Ball ‘s agent , there’s no turning back on that plan for college basketball and the ball brothers will play pro basketball overseas either if its in Europe or china.

Meet Lonzo Ball 's Agent His identity became news in early April, when Lonzo officially entered the draft and signed with an agent . He’ll represent all three brothers under the Ball Sports Group, and continue to add additional clients to SLASH.

LiAngelo never played a regular-season game for the Bruins after being indefinitely suspended last month for shoplifting during the team's season-opening trip to China. Youngest brother, LaMelo, was headed to Westwood in two years, but that plan has been scuttled.

LaVar Ball recently withdrew LaMelo from Chino Hills High, where he was a junior, and said he was going to home school him.

LaVar Ball told ESPN that LiAngelo and LaMelo have signed with Harrison Gaines, the same agent who represents Lonzo Ball.

"I don't care about the money," LaVar Ball told ESPN. "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."

Ball pulled LiAngelo from UCLA earlier this week, saying he was frustrated that the school hadn't made a final decision on the length of his son's suspension following the shoplifting incident.
