You take the Chino Hills job you adjust to Lavar Ball. You take the Bulls job in the 90s you adjust to Jordan, he doesn't adjust to you.
    His kids made the team good. LaVar put Chino Hills on the map with his antics. I am all for acquiescing to the demands of a superstar, but the Ball family doesn't have near the cache to be making demands. I worry for the child's sake, I really do. In your scenario LaVar is the star, LaMelo is simply a prop. You don't bend over backwards for props.

    That said it is his responsibility as a father to prepare his child for adulthood. So I hope for his sake he is doing the right thing.
