Simple answer. "No. We'll get somebody else. Good luck with your college career, study hard, have fun teaching social studies and coaching little league."

All 3 of these kids are likely to be NBA superstars, each one is insanely talented.

But 2 of em are still planning a one and done in college still, and need to be carefull about any hint of being involved in a contract

Lonzo Ball should be suspended pending an investigation of this.
 
2017-03-14 04:57:20 PM  
I'll pay $1B to his son LOL.

PowerSlacker: Lonzo Ball should be suspended pending an investigation of this.


Yeah, I guess you don't have UCLA in the Final Four, huh?
Also, Lonzo is an adult. He can tell his dad to go pound sand and sign his own farking contract.
 
2017-03-14 05:06:15 PM  
I think Lonzo Ball has the potential to be Jason Kidd/Magic Johnson good, but he's not that good now and may never be. The other two are high school kids in a program designed to highlight them.

Meanwhile, the father apparently wants to be the 2nd coming of Michael Jackson's father.

Good luck to all involved. I'm sorry I've got UCLA to win it all now. What a distraction.

What's the problem here, he has a number in mind, I'm sure the shoe companies have a much lower number in mind, they should be free to negotiate a number they all agree on.

His sons are still "amateur" athletes.

And if they're as good as he thinks they are, they shouldn't spend a goddamn minute farking around in the NCAA. Go to Europe.
 
2017-03-14 05:42:27 PM  
Oh and he said he could have beat Jordan in his prime. Yeah, really.... not a joke. Looks to me he is too stupid to realize how much of an ass hat he is.

I'm totally fine with that and I support paying college players.

However, if you're going to play in the current collegiate system, you can't be openly negotiating shoe contracts.
 
2017-03-14 05:53:47 PM  
Good thing those kids have an upstanding citizen like Steve Alford to give them the guidance they need.

I just saw that. Dream the fark on, asshole.

And it turns out that his oldest was briefly the subject of an NCAA investigation because he appeared on their brand's website. LaVar Ball is going to:

A) get his sons kicked off of the UCLA team for rules violations and
B) get all their asses schooled by the pros who want to shut their dad up

No biggie. UCLA has been paying athletes since the Johnny Wooden days.

Exactly... .and even if the number is outrageous, thats the first number out there.   Like it or not, the person who tosses out the first number is setting the starting point for where the negotiation begins.

A rather meaningless advantage. The important number is the last one.

One torn ACL and one dislocated big toe away from coaching Mighty Mites.  At best.

The only people who get to profit off of their labor is the NCAA.

And the benchwarmers who are getting a ton of free shiat because of their teammates' talent.

Pretty sure that most athletic apparel companies go with athletes that have (positive) hype and are good at their sport.  Kids want LeBron's shoes because he's good and is hyped/always on ESPN.


I can see Lonzo Ball having this type of ad campaign.

The last one is predicated on the first one.  There is no denying this.   Psychologically, that billion is in the head of the counterpart.   Every negotiation guru i've ever read up on advises to be the one to make the first offer, and make it outrageous.

This is a media/journalism problem here.  The man is a total nutjob, and every time his dumb ass is on screen or in print it hurts his kids' prospects.  They need to STOP INTERVIEWING HIM.  It's not funny anymore it's just sad and a bit concerning.  (either that or he'll be elected president, I'm not sure anymore)

The media likes car crashes. That's why they treated the wannabe dictator with kid gloves for so long.

That's lunatic. We've a friend who offered her house waaaaay over market. She never (never) got a sniff of an offer.
