LaVar Ball uses Lonzo rumor to take shot at Steve Nash

We all know ever since before the Los Angeles Lakers decided to draft that once Lonzo Ball became an NBA player, his father, LaVar Ball, would be coming along with him, creating buzz around his son and saying what some might deem outrageous.

This past week, LaVar has talked about two different players and their relation to the Lakers franchise. Both of them are former MVPs, one of them is still playing while the other has a backroom role at an NBA franchise.

Those two players are Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, who he believes could be in Los Angeles next summer, as well as Steve Nash, the two-time NBA MVP who is currently a player development consultant at the Golden State Warriors.

After winning people over in the past couple of weeks, Ball couldn't help but take a shot at the former Phoenix Suns star when he was asked by Ryan Ward of ClutchSports if Nash was working with Lonzo in any way.

LaVar replied: “I’d say no. The reason I say no because if he was, my son would’ve said, ‘You know what I’m working out with Steve Nash.’

“What Steve Nash going to teach my boy? He’s short and slow, man. Come on.”

Steve Nash Announces Retirement

Nash, arguably one of the greatest success stories in NBA history and soon to be a Hall of Famer, yet he is too short and too slow to be working with Lonzo. Really?

Lonzo still has a long way to go in his NBA career before he ever reaches the heights of Nash, who is a two-time NBA MVP, eight-time NBA All-Star, three-time All-NBA first team, and has his number 13 jersey retired by the Suns.

Maybe the newest Lakers star should ignore his father's advice and take up the opportunity to work with the Canadian if the rumors are true.
