Lavar Ball is the father of three talented basketball players, Lonzo, LiAngelo, and LaMelo. Two were drafted in the top three of their respective classes, the other went undrafted (LiAngelo) but is now trying to make it with the Hornets. It is Lavar’s dream to not just have all of his kids in the NBA, but he wants them all to have the opportunity to share a court together on the same team. Not as rivals on the court, but as teammates, just like they did years ago back at Chino Hills. However, that was in high school where money was not involved and it was a lot easier to make something like that materialize.
This summer would have been the best chance for the outcome that LaVar Ball desired. Lonzo was a restricted free agent and Charlotte had the chance to pitch him an offer that might have piqued his interest. Unfortunately, the Chicago Bulls swooped in and ruined all of that. Lonzo is set to be a Bull at the start of next season, while LiAngelo has the opportunity to crack the Hornets roster. Charlotte would have been the ideal landing spot for all three, but it seems like Lonzo was not a real priority in free agency for Charlotte. Lavar’s dream does not seem to be coming any closer together and we are not sure how long we might have to wait for it to become reality, if it ever does.
The piece that is still in question is LiAngelo. A lot of critics do not expect LiAngelo to make it in the NBA, but his debut in the summer league looked great and it just so happened that he landed with the Hornets. LaMelo Ball is the franchise player in Charlotte and adding LiAngelo will be a nice addition for them if he is able to crack the roster. That would be a fun storyline to follow throughout the course of the season and fans of the family would love to see that happen. And so would LaVar Ball.
