LaVar Ball: “If Gelo [LiAngelo Ball] didn’t do what he did, he would have been a lottery pick too”

LaVar Ball, in an interview with Forbes, spoke about the opportunity his son LiAngelo Ball received to play in the NBA G-League with the Oklahoma City Blue. LaVar stated that LiAngelo would’ve been a lottery pick if not for China incident, in which he and two other UCLA players were arrested after shoplifting in China.

“It wasn’t a big deal because here’s the thing; all my boys are going to go pro. So Gelo went a different direction, that means he has to take a different route. But they all cut from the same cloth. If Gelo didn’t do what he did, he would have been a lottery pick too. It’s not like I’m going to have two boys living in my house saying, ‘Oh nah I’m not going to work out like that.
