Speaking with TMZ, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley was asked about Ball and the Hall of Famer had a pretty blunt response:
“Wherever LaVar Ball is, there’s a village missing an idiot,” Barkley said. ” … We should just keep LaVar off television. That would be the best way to be.”
Barkley may get his wish to keep Ball off television, as ESPN has since said that it has “no plans moving forward” with Ball.
Barkley did have some kind words for Ball’s eldest son Lonzo, but indicated he had zero expectations that Ball’s behavior will change now that his family’s most valuable member is playing for the New Orleans Pelicans.
“Not just New Orleans, Louisiana, not Los Angeles, [LaVar]’s an idiot in all 50 states,” Barkley said. “It’s really unfair to his son. His son is a good player and a nice kid.”
