Five Things That Are Worse For Basketball Than LaVar Ball

Bleacher Report reported earlier that Nike Executive George Raveling stated that LaVar Ball is “the worst thing to happen to basketball in the last hundred years.”

LaVar Ball has made the news more and more since his oldest son, Lonzo Ball, began playing for UCLA Basketball last fall. The elder Ball has been outspoken, and some would say a little hyperbolic, about his sons’ abilities. He once claimed Lonzo, a college freshman, was already better than Steph Curry, a nine-year NBA player.
