Odds to Win 2019 NBA Championship

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the National Basketball Association Pacific Ocean water I regret to relay that father of Lonzo Ball, LaVar Ball, was spotted and heard trolling the shallows of Long Beach chewing on his rhetorical nonsense, again.

With an overload of NBA trade deadline rumors circulating the World Wide Web and national media outlets concerning the Lakers interest in New Orleans Pelicans All Star center Anthony Davis the understanding that Lonzo would be a part of the trade spurred the controversial dad to open up and market his son.

Having an interest in a child’s future is a given by a mother and father but it was LaVar’s statement when appearing on “Undisputed” Thursday morning that was interesting, or better phrased, ridiculous. LaVar told the national audience that the Lakers would be making a mistake trading his son.


That he was better than the current point guard for Los Angeles, LeBron James.

It is more of a gamble than a sports investment to be tangling with the sportsbooks and their NBA line the next week. With the large number transacted trades that have transpired the last two-plus days in the Association who plays, how sits and so-on is not public knowledge, for the most part.
