I personally think he has to be joking somewhat to get some attention. For example the MJ comments. I do find it funny he bred his kids like we do in horse racing. Picked an athletic mate to give him good offspring lol. similar to Shabazz Muhamed's father. He is still crazy though.

I wonder if LeBron went to stud what he would command like in thoroughbred stallion markets

US government needs to pay Lebron and Serena to spend the next 10 years breeding our next generation of Olympic athletes.

From everything I've seen, his kids, especially Lonzo, seem pretty level headed and humble. Complete opposite of their father.

Depends on your definition of fail. In a few months, his oldest son will likely be the 2nd pick in the draft and get at least $25 mil in guaranteed money before any endorsement deals. And I could see him being a solid player in the league. I suppose he could flame out, but to his credit Lonzo seems remarkably well adjusted given he has a lunatic for a father.

I don't know enough about the younger 2 to comment on their abilities or attitude.

I've read that the middle one is mediocre but the youngest one may be just as good if not better than Lonzo.

My knocks on Ball are that he can't shoot with range, defense is average at best, not very fast, and doesn't do well in a half court offense.

That sounds like something Sandusky (Penn State) would say.

Lonzo doesn't get that acting like a tool blows back on his kids. I reaaaaaaaaaally enjoyed watching his kid getting his *** handed to him against Kentucky.

To be fair I think Lonzo is very level headed considering his upbringing and father LaVar

The dad is hard to take. The kid looks to be a good kid. He also looks somewhat boyish and would probably benefit from another year or two of college.

If you are a potential top 3 pick you would be foolish not to go. I agree he will grow into that body but tough to turn down that money

Agreed. You don't turn down that.

Tim Duncan turned it down twice. Worked out for him.

Just wondering, was Duncan a potential top 3 pick?

There are plenty more examples of it not working out for future pro athletes then it working out.

Ask Jared Sullinger, Jake Locker, Matt Barkely etc.

No real way for him to improve his draft stock. He's a potential #1 pick. Would be a risky decision to come back given the recent track record mostly says your stock falls with additional years of college.
