Uh....OK. I'm not sure anyone is advocating that Lonzo be "punished". The old man's behavior has ensured that the two are inseparable in the public consciousness. It is what it is at this point.

The old man's braggadocio has painted an indelible bullseye on the kid's back. Those that find Lavar objectionable are likely to draw a little schadenfreude from any of Lonzo's struggles. While that is unfortunate, it should surprise no one, Lonzo included.

At this point, the kid's ceiling appears to be Ricky Rubio talent. As the kid's formative coach and dominant influence, that's on dad. Time will tell.

Agreed. I always thought OJ Mayo was a similar talent.

It isn't difficult for me to separate my feeling on Lavar from my feelings on Lonzo. Not sure why it would be for anyone.

Nothing difficult at all about anticipating and forgiving the early-season struggles of a novice NBA guard, yet also enjoying the fails of Lavar Ball's son. Too complex a dynamic for you to grasp ?

LaVar Ball and Donald Trump- two guys without the ability to just shut up.

They both seem to have garnering free pub as a primary goal. Trump has a lot more experience in doing it to effectively achieve goals.

I would say that this situation, where he's essentially said he should have left the UCLA kids in jail, is a rare situation where I'm glad he tweeted.

As long as the media keeps thrusting the microphone in LaVar's ugly and giving him a forum, he's just going to keep up the mindless jabbering.

Most rebounds by a rookie guard since 2000. But who cares? He played 40 minutes. Shoulda grabbed 20.
