Okay, so I’ve been discussing different types of people in society. This character LaVar Ball deserves his own category.
So, yesterday I was having lunch at a restaurant and they had CNN on. And guess who was on CNN shooting his mouth off? None other than LaVar Ball. If I understand correctly, CNN had him on for 20+ minutes, which led me to, first of all, wonder why that network had nothing better to do than talk to this wannabe-coach for that long. (I say “wannabe-coach” because it seems that’s what he’s been doing with one of his son’s teams, the L.A. Lakers.)
I mean, this LaVar Ball is nothing more than a loudmouth who likes to stir things up. And if I understand him correctly, he apparently thinks shoplifting is “no big deal.” Wow, what a wonderful role model as a parent. Stealing is okay, according to my understanding of his comments.
The other thing, of course, was the refusal to thank President Donald Trump for getting his son and the other two college basketball players out of jail. So, LaVar Ball, a so-called “media personality,” is essentially teaching young Americans out there to be ungrateful… to not bother to thank people who’ve helped you out. Talk about the lack of manners. Who the heck is LaVar Ball? Just the father of some basketball players.
And no, his son is not better than Steph Curry. LaVar Ball himself can’t beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one competition. Sure, the guy (LaVar Ball) was a practice squad player on two NFL teams in the mid-1990s, but he never played a regular-season NFL game in his carer. But perhaps he suffered a concussion or two to, years later, seem to suggest stealing is okay. Yup. Must be those concussions. If not, then LaVar Ball was probably born and raised that way – an ungrateful fool.
And shame on CNN (and other media outlets, for that matter) for allowing him to go on and on with his nonsensical, idiotic shtick.
