LaVar Ball, the father of Charlotte Hornets star LaMelo Ball, once wanted his youngest son to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Nowadays that will never happen. Lonzo Ball, LaVar’s firstborn, was picked second overall by the Lakers in the 2017 NBA Draft.

However, Lonzo only played two seasons with Los Angeles. In July 2019, the Lakers traded Lonzo to the New Orleans Pelicans. Of course, he was then traded from the Pelicans to the Chicago Bulls last August. Anyway, the Lakers selling Lonzo angered LaVar.

LaVar Ball is NOT rocking the idea of ​​LaMelo Ball ever joining the Lakers 😳

According to multiple NBA betting sites, the Lakers hold the 12th best odds to win the championship in 2023. Meanwhile, some sportsbooks feature the Hornets with the bottom five odds.

“I wanted Melo to be a laker before the ship even put to sea,” LaVar Ball replied during an interview with Complex. “You get rid of ‘Zo [Lonzo Ball] and you think i’m coming back? I’m not such a dumb guy.”

LaVar Ball was interested in LaMelo Ball possibly playing for the Lakers before Lonzo Ball was traded

Lonzo’s best season with the Lakers was his 2017-18 rookie season. He made 50 starts in 52 appearances. Ball averaged 10.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He also shot 36% from the field and 30.5% over the arc. He was then selected to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

“Common sense would tell you hell no,” the 55-year-old added when asked if he ever had any doubts about LaMelo playing for the Lakers. “You did something to my boy Lonzo, and do you think I’ll come back with the others? I must be stone cold crazy.”

LaMelo Ball scored 16 of his 23 goals in the 4th quarter of the Hornets’ win over the Kings

LaVar Ball is convinced his three sons — including LiAngelo Ball, who is currently signed to the G League’s Greensboro Swarm — will be playing on the same NBA team in the near future.

In seven starts this season, LaMelo Ball averaged career-highs of 23.1 points and 7.4 assists. He also logs 3.4 rebounds per game while posting career bests of 45.7% from the floor and 40.3% from 3-point range.

The Hornets guard has suffered a number of injuries over the past few months. During the preseason, Ball suffered an ankle injury and had to sideline him for the first 13 games of the regular season. When the guard returned, the 21-year-old pinched the same ankle, missing 11 more games.
