LaVar Ball fires back after son Lonzo’s 3-point debut: 'Who is Patrick Beverley?'
MANILA, Philippines - It appears that even in defeat, LaVar Ball will not stop talking, because he’s LaVar Ball.
Daddy Ball came to his son Lonzo’s rescue after the Los Angeles Clippers’ guard Patrick Beverley called him a “weak-ass motherf--ker” and held the rookie to just 3 points in the Lakers’ 108-92 loss to their housemate Clippers.
Here is LaVar’s response according to Bleacher Report, in full glory. Try to read it in his voice:
"Yeah, you shut the motherf--ker down. And your check still ain't going to go no higher than what it is. Yeah, you shut him down. OK ... Who is Patrick Beverley? He played all last year and nobody said nothing about him. Now we are looking at your first game. Why? Because Lonzo's name is attached to it.
“Let's see what you do the next 5 games, if you are going to be pumped up towards everybody like that and go back to your 0-for-5 shooting and your two or 3 rebounds. Nobody is going to care about you. But you put my son's name in it and you put my name in it, now you got some action and you got some people talking."
Who is Patrick Beverley? He’s a 2017 All-Defense first Team member and he just shut down Lonzo Ball. Despite the accolade, he’s nowhere near the skill level of the league’s other elite guards. Lonzo has yet to eat a Kyrie Irving crossover or duck a John Wall dunk.
After the disrespect LaVar showed Beverley, one of these superstars would eventually bring their A-game on his son and embarrass him even more. In the NBA, it’s like what that one documentary said: Ball or Fall. – Rappler.com
