LaVar Ball Compares His Sons To Michael Jordan And Magic Johnson
LaVar Ball is at it again. This time, he’s comparing his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.
In a recent interview, Ball explained that the Phil Jackson philosophy with Jordan and the Pat Riley relationship with Johnson is comparable to how LiAngelo and LaMelo will find success.
Sports Illustrated reports that the controversial father said,
“What Coach Phil did, back up, Michael Jordan’s the superstar, you can’t coach him. Pat Riley, back up, let Magic do what he do. He’s a champion. How do you coach these guys? You don’t. They something special. You let them do what they do. Melo is in that same book. Gelo is in that same [book]. They something special. So I just back up, tell them go get the victory and come on back home.”
Ball went on to call Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr “the Milli Vanilli of coaching.”
“You can stand in that same spot and win twenty something games like Luke Walton did when you got the right horses that’s running. As soon as he wins the championship, then everyone says he is a good coach.”
