LaVar Ball has three sons, and all of them are working on careers in the basketball world.
His first-born son, Lonzo, is currently trying to capture an NBA title with the Chicago Bulls. His third-born son, LaMelo, is using his time with the Charlotte Hornets to establish himself as one of the league’s best young players.
But his other son, LiAngelo, is still trying to prove that he’s worthy of a shot in the NBA.
LiAngelo Ball is currently playing for the Hornets’ G League affiliate. Even though he has displayed a lot of potential, Charlotte hasn’t given him a shot at the NBA level yet.
LaVar Ball isn’t too happy about that.
“They don’t understand what they got,” LaVar Ball told TMZ regarding LiAngelo Ball. “They need to let my boy go ahead and play.
“I dropped them a superstar in the G-League and they don’t know what to do with him.”
Only time will tell if LiAngelo Ball ends up getting a chance to play alongside or against his brothers in the NBA.
Over four games in the G League this season, the 23-year-old is averaging 9.3 points per game over 13.7 minutes of action per contest. Impressively, he’s shooting 57.7 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc.
The youngster is certainly knocking down shots at a high clip, but it seems like the Hornets want to see more from him before perhaps giving him a shot in the NBA.
If he does make it to the association at some point, LaVar Ball will surely be pumped.
