    I wouldn't draft Lonzo Ball if I needed a PG and he was the only one in the draft.

    [QUOTE=Realreason;6272621][QUOTE=sweet16;6259442]If the kid is a good one then every GM will draft him if available and it fills their need. The dad will have no effect on draft-ability. I think college coaches might shy away from him but both of his kids have already committed to UCLA.

    Saw this weekend were the dad has started his own Sports Agency and will only represent his 3 kids. This is exactly why GM's should steer clear of bringing any of his son's into the organization. The kid hasn't even made it to the league and he is already letting it be known that he should be treated as something special. Talent is hard to pass up, but not being able to sign the talent or having dad trash the surrounding talent is never worth the price. Just my opinion but time will tell.
    Signing will not be a problem if he is drafted. The salary is slotted. Now after the rookie contract is up then it could be another story.

    Which is why you'll never be an NBA GM.

    This might be the dumbest thing I've read all year.

    That may be true but I guarantee you my life won't revolve around a circus like LaVar Ball.

    I liked Gary Parrish's response quite a bit:

    @GaryParrishCBS
    I bet there are some who would argue that shoe companies dictating where basketball players go to college is worse.

    What LaVar said was stupid and yes racial, but what has he said that wasn't ignorant?

    The reason this argument doesn't work is because those white guys haven't been discriminated against for decades. It's not the same.

    Whichever NBA team signs this kid trouble will follow, with the name LaVar attached to it.

    I didn't say it did. I think what he said was ignorant and racist. It's still not the same as a white guy saying it.
