Read on and see what the Cleveland Cavaliers baller Kyrie Irving had to say about Lonzo Ball‘s over barring dad,LaVar Ball…
Kyrie Irving tried to offer some suggestions to LaVar Ball , but instead, The Big Baller Brand ambassador spoke ill of his mother, who passed away.
Kyrie told LaVar Ball that he NEEDS to let his son carve his own path in life. LaVar was offended, since he micro-manages every aspect of his sons life. Not only that, it appears LaVar Ball is living the dream of the NBA through his son’s hard work.
“You’re not going to be everywhere and part of his life as he continues to grow up,” said. “You got to let go. He’s 19-years old. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want it to bypass him being a father, but he’s got to let Lonzo be Lonzo for the long haul.”
Kyrie recalls speaking to his dad at 18 about entering the draft, and his father let him make the final decision.
“I had to have a talk with my dad and I was just like, ‘Man, Dad, I love you but I’m going to make my own decisions,’” Irving said. “And he told me, when I turn 18, I’m responsible enough for myself to make my own decisions and he’s going to be there to help along the way. But when I turned 18, like, I got my first tattoo. I got my ear pierced. I just started doing my own thing.”
Of course, LaVar didn’t like what Kyrie Irving had to say about giving his son space and letting him be his own man.
“How you gonna tell me how my son should be when you don”t have a kid?”
LaVar was not aware that Kyrie has a daughter who will be two years old in November.
But in typical fashion, Ball didn’t stop there. He got personal and questioned Kyrie’s upbringing. It was uncalled for since Kyrie was only trying to tell LaVar to take a step back, because the NBA is looking at him as a problem for his son.
Ball viciously attacked:
“Like Kyrie, he’s in a different situation. So you cant put yourself in the same situation as Lonzo. I have a wife and two other sons. You not in that situation. Maybe he don’t have the relationship that me and ‘Zo got. And I don’t think he did. First of all, ya mom wasn’t there, so something’s got to change right there. It’s not the same. Lonzo can come home and see his mom all the time.”
LaVar was so wrong on so many levels!
LaVar is now catching serious flack for his comments. Maybe this is why the OZ2 shoe is suffering on sales? You can’t be a douche bag when you’re trying to make it in the big leagues. But hey, he has to learn, right?
Man, Kyrie, you didn’t deserve any of that. LaVar, you were wrong dude. You NEED to STOP LASHING out at people when you don’t know their history.
