The Ball family is currently making headlines in Lithuania, where LiAngelo and LaMelo are playing professional basketball under the watch of their famously outspoken father, LaVar. Meanwhile, concerns have risen in the states over the negative impact LaVar Ball has had on his son, Lonzo. Jason Smith doesn't want to say "I told you so", but in this case, he has to.
Everybody who felt that LaVar Ball wouldn't be a distraction was wrong. Jason warned the Lakers of the baggage that comes with drafting Lonzo Ball. LaVar Ball has sacrificed his children for his own gain, and now the Lakers find themselves in a situation where they can't escape him. LaVar Ball's words have a further reach than Luke Walton's, and they have nobody to blame but themselves.
