During an interview on Wednesday night, five time NBA champion and current Los Angeles Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson had quite the comparison to make: LaVar Ball to Kris Jenner. Papa Ball sure knows how to remain in the spotlight over the last couple of months, making boisterous claims when it comes to his son Lonzo Ball, who is expected to be among the top picks in the draft after a dynamic freshman season at UCLA. Johnson went on to say he has “no problem” with LaVar and pointed out the similarities between him and the matriarch of the Kardashian family on ESPN Radio Los Angeles. Read what Magic had to say below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
“Look, the Kardashians, we didn’t say that the mom was bad, and she made them a lot of money, right? She’s bragged on her daughters, and I think it’s the same here. He’s just saying, ‘Hey, my son is great,’ and there’s nothing bad with that.
This young man has been a champion, in high school, and then he’s gone on to have a stellar career at UCLA, and his father was talking at that time, but it didn’t bother him. So as long as it doesn’t bother him, it’s not going to bother the Laker organization, as long as Lonzo performs on the basketball court, right?”
