Lavar Ball is the New Joe Jackson

Bleacher ReportThe father (Lavar Ball) believes his sons' talents could beckon the largest shoe marketing deal in history. "A billion dollars, it has to be there," Ball said. "That's our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don't even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years."He apparently hasn't decided whether Nike, Adidas or Under Armour gets the deal, as long as it's a package deal and for quite a bit of money.

Lavar Ball just doing his thing, besides making the outrageous statement his 3 sons, (Lonzo, LiAngelo, and LaMelo) deserve a billion dollar shoe deal, he also states in the story he could easily beat MJ in a 1 on 1 game. 

This guy is the re-incarnation of Joe Jackson. Yes, I know Jackson is still alive, so if anything Lavar went to the school of Joe Jackson. Getting taught how to exploit your kids for every penny, make headlines that focus on you, and promote the shit out of your clothing brand that only idiots would buy. I mean seriously the dude has a clothing brand and not one of his kids has made it past the college level. I know Lonzo will, but it's no guarantee he makes it anywhere in the NBA. 

Dude is just trying to get his 15 minutes of fame. He's officially become his own circus and people are just going to seek him out trying to get a ridiculous quote out him. It may pay off in the future, but for now he's just another crazy parent trying to get rich off his kids success.

Oh and last, but not least Lavar, this would only ever happen in your dreams....

"I would just back (Jordan) in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left," Ball said. "He cannot stop me one-on-one. He better make every shot ’cause he can't go around me. He's not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim."
