Family, Friends, and Golden State Warriors: Steve Kerr Weighs In On LaVar Ball Amid His Comments on Lakers' Coach Luke Walton: "He's Become Like The Kardashian Of The NBA" 13 @balleralert MPIONS KAISER PERMANENTE Steve Kerr Weighs In On LaVar Ball Amid His Comments on Lakers’ Coach Luke Walton: “He’s Become Like The Kardashian Of The NBA”– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As LaVarBall and the Big Baller Brand continue to claim headlines, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr has drawn an interesting comparison between sports’ most talked about family and one of Hollywood’s most controversial families - the Kardashians. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, following Ball’s criticisms about the Lakers’ coaching staff, where he claimed the team no longer wants to play for coach Luke Walton, an irritated Kerr weighed in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Somewhere, I guess in Lithuania, LaVar Ball is laughing at all of us. People are eating out of his hands for no apparent reason, other than he's become like the Kardashian of the NBA or something," Kerr said of Ball. "And that sells, and that's what's true in politics and entertainment and now in sports. It doesn't matter if there's any substance involved with an issue, it's just can we make it really interesting for no apparent reason? There is nothing interesting about that story." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I feel horrible for Luke, that's my guy, he's one of my best friends," Kerr said, referencing Ball’s comments about Walton’s lack of control. "He shouldn't have to deal with this. But to me, one of the things about the NBA is it's always been a haven from the parents. The guys who coach high school are the ones who really have to deal with the parents. I've never had to talk to a parent who was upset about playing time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I'm sure there are plenty out there but they don't have a voice in the NBA. But for whatever reason we're giving this guy a voice and Luke's got to deal with it, and it's a shame. He's handling it great. He's doing all he can. It's just part of his gig, unfortunately."

According to Slam Online, the Junior Basketball Association will pay top prospects a couple of thousand dollars a month and will serve as an alternative to the one and done athletes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We have officially launched our own pro basketball league called the “Junior Basketball Association,” sponsored by Big Baller Brand,” Ball said in a statement to the publication. “The JBA is the very first junior pro basketball league of its kind. The JBA will cater to the top-ranked high school basketball prospects in America. All nationally ranked high school seniors, whose main goal are to reach the NBA, will be offered an opportunity to join the JBA, turning pro straight out of high school and bypassing the usual college pit stop.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With a monthly stipend between $3,000 to $10,000, as well as the proper tools and assistance needed to prepare for the NBA draft, the new league will be a new way for players to pursue the pros. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, Ball is looking to secure at least 80 players for 10 teams, with games held in LA, Dallas, Brooklyn, and Atlanta. He spoke with ESPN’s Darren Rovell about his decision and expressed his confidence in league’s participation, saying, “Getting these players is going to be easy. This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new league will follow the rules of the NBA with professional court features, but there is a catch. All players will be required to rock BBB merch for the league. ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

As a result of his wrongdoing, LiAngelo was placed under house arrest but was sent home after several officials, including Donald Trump, put in a good word for the young triple B baller. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, since LiAngelo’s international charges were dropped, sources say Ball believes UCLA’s punishment was unfair. “There’s no need to break down a kid’s spirit for making a mistake,” Ball’s team told the publication of LiAngelo’s suspension. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sources tell TMZ that although LiAngelo has not officially been withdrawn and had never played a game for the UCLA team, he will not be returning to the school.
