LaVar Ball Compares Magic Johnson to the Wizard of Oz

LaVar Ball Compares Magic Johnson to the Wizard of Oz

Ball was also adamant that LeBron James isn't winning a championship in Los Angeles without Lonzo.

LaVar Ball making headlines is nothing new. From saying he could beat Jordan in one-on-one to claiming Lonzo is better than Stephen Curry, Ball has said some insane things in the past. If you trade my son, it'll be the worst thing you ever did. "LeBron's hurt, he's getting old".

Ball has been out since January 19 with an ankle sprain. He's averaging 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 32.4 minutes per game this season.

The notion that Ball could beat James is laughable as the UCLA product has failed to fully establish himself in the National Basketball Association.

Tucker Carlson aired and narrated the FBI's raid on Roger Stone's home during his show Friday night. Within minutes, Stone exits his home to greet the agents who have their rifles pointed at him.

From there, LaVar Ball criticized Lakers head coach Luke Walton, suggesting that "you can get as many players as you want, but if you don't have a system [or a coach] you're not going to win, I don't care if you get everybody that's good".

LaVar Ball thinks the Lakers and LeBron James won't do anything without his son Lonzo.

Ball's outlandish statements about his son, James, and the Lakers have put the elder Ball back into the spotlight.

According to Mackel, LaVar "wrecked" any chance of a trade between the Lakers and Pelicans for Davis being completed because of how outspoken he was about not wanting Lonzo to play in New Orleans.
