LaVar Ball continues to be the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to ridiculous quotes and business ideas.
In Ball’s latest statements, he says he won’t be seeking any advice from retired Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant.
Check out Ball’s comments:
“I don’t need no advice from Kobe Bryant,” LaVar Ball said Thursday on the Keyshawn, Jorge and LZ Show on ESPN Radio 710 LA. “I don’t need advice from Kobe Bryant. Zo’s got to play his game.
“If they’re at practice and he sees something and Lonzo listens to him or whatever, he’s good. … But it’s just not, ‘OK, I’m talking to Kobe, so now I’m going to be good.’ If Kobe sees something that Zo is doing, then go from there. But I’m not trying to pattern after nobody.”
Bryant told ESPN that his desire to mentor younger players was spurred by pop star Michael Jackson, who told him during a visit to Neverland Ranch to reach out to all the greats in your profession and learn from them.
“I’m around for all the guys,” Bryant told ESPN. “Anybody can reach out. It’s an open book.”
