There’s something to say about supporting your children. Helicopter father LaVar Ball knows this full well. He also knows how to inflate the ego of his children to the point that it’s not healthy.

We’re pretty sure Ball crossed that rubicon recently in talking with TMZ Sports. When posed with a question about whether he thinks LaMelo Ball is better than LeBron James was as a teenager, the older Ball had about the most ridiculous response one could come up with.

“HE BETTER THAN LEBRON. STOP.”

Now that a debate we didn’t know we needed has been decided, the only question here is whether the Cleveland Cavaliers will swoop in and select LaMelo No. 1 overall when he declares for the NBA Draft. After all, the younger Ball is apparently the second coming of King James.

In all honesty, this is just another ridiculous take from a loud-mouthed man in LaVar Ball who just can’t seem to help himself.
