LaVar Ball is not in favor of his son LaMelo joining the Golden State Warriors in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Ball believes the Warriors are not a good fit for his son, who is expected to be one of the top picks in the Draft.

“That’s the part I don’t like about Golden State. They got Klay and the other guys, and now you want to put Melo in that mix to say you got to follow these guys. Melo ain’t no follower. He doesn’t need to do what they do, let them do their thing.

There’s a reason you are looking at my son. He’s talented and can play the game. It ain’t that hard. Guy is open, and you pass it to them. You open and you been working on your shot?

Shoot the ball. It’s fast-paced, it’s good. But don’t be like Melo got to his turn and wait for two or three years to go by and learn from the veterans. Ain’t about that. Can you play or not?

And when you special, how do you coach somebody special? You just enjoy it, and they special because of the things they do. Enjoy it. Let him do what he does,” LaVar Ball said on the Say Less with Kaz podcast, via Josh Schrock of NBC Sports Bay Area.
