LaVar Ball on UCLA losing in March Madness: 'You can't win no championship with 3 white guys'

Lonzo Ball and the UCLA Bruins bowed out of this year's NCAA Tournament in the Sweet 16. Several weeks later, Lonzo's eccentric father, LaVar Ball, suggested it was because the team had "three white guys" in its starting lineup.

"Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow," LaVar told The Orange County Register on Thursday. "I told Lonzo, 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out that was the one game. Then once they get to the Elite 8, they're right there."
This season, UCLA started three white players: TJ Leaf, Bryce Alford, and Thomas Welsh.
In the Bruins' Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky, Lonzo Ball played through a bad hamstring and managed only 10 points.
"People thought he was giving up, but he popped his hamstring," LaVar Ball said. "He said, 'I was trying to run, but my hamstring was pulled.' But he's never going to make excuses."
In the locker room after his team's March Madness loss, Lonzo Ball announced that he was turning pro, and he's projected to be a top-three pick in this year's NBA draft. Basketball fans may debate whether his wonky jump shot will translate to the NBA, but one thing is certain: LaVar Ball will surely continue to make headlines once his son reaches the next level.

    As long as he don't pop off with similarly problematic statements, his pops will have 0 effect on his earning potential.

    Especially if he lives up to the hype

    I really don't care about crackers being in their feels about this, but dude is factually incorrect. That Duke team that won the chip against Butler had like 5 white boys on the squad. I wish he'd shut the 🤬 up overall

    Butler best player was white though lol

    Lonzo seems humble as 🤬 .

    Lamelo seems like he would have more to worry about because he mimics Lavar a lot. He's 15 though so he's impressionable, so that might change.

    Lonzo seems like he only cares about hooping, dude mumbles in the interviews, his dad out talks him by a lot.

    Personality wise he seems like another Kawhi or Duncan

    Dude may be the WOAT athlete father. Seriously, Danny Garcia's dad is probably like, "Yo, shut the 🤬 up."

    And aren't his sons half white? (Don't follow them at all, but I'm just eyeballing it). The 🤬 ...

    Jordan Bulls- usually had 1 or two spot up 3 point specialist. Only one was a starter (Paxson and even then BJ Armstrong used to snatch up mad playing time off him) as far as the other white guys, you saying Jordan don't win 6 chips w/o luc longley and will purdue lol come on son!

    Bird Celtics are the exception...and that's bc Bird was a hall of fame player, you know what you right on Celtics. McHale and Ainge were major contributors.

    So now you changing the topic. Bulls squad had 6 white dudes..almost half its roster when they won 72-10. So by this stupid logic, they should have never won a championship because it had 6 white guys

    Toni Kukoc and Steve Kerr werent major contributors? Without Toni who one of the best 6th man in the league who starts when Pip was injured or Rodman was suspended you can say Bulls are no way the same team.. Or Kerr who was arguably the best 3pt shooter in the league (best 3 point pct of all time)

    In 98 Pip missed most of the first half of season, if Bulls don' have Toni they are not a one seed perhaps not even a two seed...

    Luc Longley starting Center, Bill Wennington was his backup. Jud Buechler also contributed.

    The Bulls actually had 3 or 4 white guys playing on the court many times..2 white guys on the court was common.

    Do the Spurs win all of its championships without Manu

    Never-mind the history of the NBA prior to our life times teams were full of white guys winning championships.

    Stop It 5.
