LaVar Ball – Basketball Media Craze

posted in: Basketball | 22

LaVar Ball has made some outlandish statements about his son, Lonzo, being better than Steph Curry, Michael Jordan, or Jason Kidd. He went on say, “Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one.” For context, LaVar played basketball at Washington State where he averaged 2 points per game before transferring to Cal State – Los Angeles, a Division II program. He was an All-Conference player there in 1990. Not sure, but I think Jordan’s resume reads a bit better than LaVar’s…

LaVar has been involved in war of words with the likes of Stephen A. Smith, Charles Barkley, and LeBron James to mention a few and there is no sign that his lips will stop moving as he still has two more sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, who play for Chino Hills High School. In one game, while LiAngelo was out, LaMelo scored 92 points.

Now that UCLA has been ousted by Kentucky in the March Madness tournament and Freshman De’Aaron Fox of Kentucky outscored Lonzo, 39 to 10, his whole family will suffer major backlash.

My take on LaVar is that he is a brilliant marketer of his sons. They will be NBA level players and while we won’t know how good they will be at the highest level, we do know that they will mostly likely be set financially for life.

Having said that, I don’t know how his sons and his wife, Tina, feel about LaVar’s big mouth. There are reports out there indicating that Tina suffered a major stroke in February, 2017 and that LaVar has not allowed his sons to visit her due to the media attention it would draw. During a life threatening skull surgery on Tina to reduce pressure, LaVar chose to watch his sons play at Chino Hills High School instead of being with his wife.

If there is harmony within the Ball family, I’m fine with LaVar’s marketing strategy. If the reports of Tina’s health and actions that LaVar has taken are true, then it appears on the surface that there some serious family issues that LaVar needs to prioritize. After all, sports is entertainment, family is life… While I don’t know them, my prayers go out to Tina and the Ball family.

My advice to LaVar is to relax, support his family and let his son’s actions and play on the court speak for themselves. But most importantly, TAKE CARE OF YOUR WIFE !!!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s pretty value sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
