LaVar Ball says a lot of things that are often seen as ridiculous. At this point, sports fans are basically used to it. But wow, look what Ball’s latest proclamation did to Stephen A. Smith:
During Wednesday’s appearance on First Take, LaVar guaranteed that his son, Lonzo Ball, would lead the Lakers to a 50-plus win season right off the bat.
Given that the West is completely stacked this season, Smith completely lost his mind over the outrageous prediction.
Immediately after Lonzo was drafted by the Lakers, LaVar predicted that the Lakers would make the playoffs in Lonzo’s first year, but he didn’t put a number on the actual win total.
A 50-plus win season is way different than just sneaking in the playoffs as the eighth seed.
