LaVar Ball: Zion Williamson needs to learn how to play

LaVar Ball Lakers

Lonzo Ball has already had the privilege of calling LeBron James a teammate for a season, and he will soon be playing alongside a young superstar who many believe will be the next LeBron. Lonzo’s father LaVar clearly isn’t viewing it that way just yet.

With Ball having been traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the New Orleans Pelicans as part of the Anthony Davis deal, LaVar Ball said he has no concerns because Lonzo can “play with anyone.” He also said Williamson has “gotta learn how to play.”

What LaVar probably means is that Williamson still has to prove he can play in the NBA, which goes without saying. However, he certainly didn’t feel that way about Lonzo when he was still playing at UCLA, and Lonzo’s ceiling is nowhere near Zion’s.

No matter what he says to the media, it sounds like LaVar did not take the trade well.
