LaVar Ball under fire for response to Kyrie Irving
LaVar Ball continues to discover the pitfalls of media overexposure, with the latest incident stemming from a TV appearance this week.
The senior Ball promptly put his foot in his mouth with his response.
"Kyrie, definitely." Ball said. "How you gonna tell me how my son should be when you don't have a kid?"
Irving's first child was born in 2015, but that wasn't the most offensive thing Ball said.
"Kyrie, he's in a different situation," he added. "So you can't put yourself in the same situation as Lonzo. I have a wife and two other sons. You not in that situation ... first of all, your mom wasn't there, so something's got to change right there. It's not the same. Lonzo can come home and see his mom and dad all the time."
Irving's mother, Elizabeth, died when he was 4 years old.
The online reaction to Ball's take on Irving was furious.
