LaVar Ball was a Jets training camp scrub in 1994-95

This season, Dekker has worked his way into the Rockets' rotation, while Kaminsky improved his per-game totals for points, assists, rebounds and steals and has started more than a dozen games.

He's, unsurprisingly, not that great.

Fultz, a 6'4 freshman, averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game for a nine-win Washington Huskies team while Ball, 6'6, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6 rebounds a night.

But while Lonzo Ball's impact on the college game was undeniable during his one and done stop at UCLA, there are very real questions surrounding how his game and its quirks will translate to the National Basketball Association game.

In his defense, Ball said he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one during his "heyday", but this video clip shows us that Ball is well beyond those days. "It's OK. No one goes undefeated, '" Lavar said.

If you are scoring at home - a sneaker manufacturer would need to sell the equivalent about TWO HUNDRED MILLION pairs of sneakers to break even if they gave the Balls a billion dollar contract.

Ball, as you well know, has made various braggadocious claims about his eldest son Lonzo over the past six months.

Saints coach Payton: Team not looking to bring in Manziel
Now, as the Saints prepare for next month's draft, another report is surfacing that the team has no interest in signing Manziel. He registered 63 combined tackles, 17 passes deflected and four interceptions last season.

"The guy is going to ruin it for his kids", Mike Bryant told ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Tuesday, via Jesse Rogers of ESPN.

I can not wait for the guy to just fade away from existence. Maybe he really does believe it, maybe he doesn't, but LaVar is doing well to keep his son's name in the news stream. Who would you take #1 overall?

Anyhow, when it comes to how other parents raise their kids, a good policy it to mind your own business, and that's probably what Bryant should've done here.

While we may never see Father Ball against Papa James in a real setting, thankfully the team at Sport's Illustrated has given us an NBA2K simulation that shows us just that.

The same could be said for the Lakers, who have tinkered with the starting backcourt all season in hopes of getting the most out of D'Angelo Russell.

Lonzo Ball: "Yeah, I'm fine with it".

LaVar is a guy that played "professional" football for the London Monarchs in the World American Football League (yeah, I had to look it up too to see if it was legit) and was a fringe practice squad player in the NFL.
