LaVar Ball is not the type of a man who forgets things. Recently he was asked whether his youngest son LaMelo will suit for the Lakers in future.

His response was a clear ‘no.’ The reason behind that is that his oldest son, Lonzo, has already been a Laker, but the team chose to trade him to the Pelicans in order to get Anthony Davis.

According to LaVar, if the Purple and Gold didn’t want to keep Lonzo, they will not get LaMelo.

So when you hear the rumors and internet speculation of LaMelo ultimately finding his way west and playing at home for the Lakers when you consider how things ended with Lonzo, would you want LaMelo in a Lakers uniform? 
Common sense would tell you, hell no. You did something to my boy Lonzo, and you think I’m going to come back with the others? I gotta be stone-cold crazy.

So you’re saying you wouldn’t want LaMelo to be a Laker?
No. I wanted Melo to be a Laker before that ship done sailed. You get rid of ‘Zo and you think I’m going to come back? I’m not that type of foolish guy. 

The 21-year-old point guard, who became an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career last year, is averaging 23.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists in 32.7 minutes per game for the Hornets.
