LaVar Ball guarantees Lakers will never win another championship
LaVar Ball does not seem to be taking the trade of his son well at all.
LaVar was at the Drew League in Los Angeles to watching his youngest son, LaMelo, play on Saturday when news that his son was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans broke. Ball was visibly upset at the trade news.
Later in an interview, he told ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk that the Lakers would regret the deal and never win a championship again.

“I guarantee… it will be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they will never win another championship,” Ball said.
LaVar has long had a vision that all three of his sons would be playing on the Lakers together. That is crumbling one piece at a time. Son LiAngelo was never good enough to be an NBA player; the Lakers have traded Lonzo; and who knows what will happen with LaMelo.
LaVar has kept his big mouth mostly shut over the past several months. If he doesn’t like what he sees with the Pelicans, expect him to be vocal about it very quickly. He’s already made noise in the past that he preferred his son to be traded to Phoenix.
