LaVar gives Bronny advice

Like LeBron James, LaVar Ball is a proud father of sons who are basketball players. Of course, with the ever-troublesome news of son Lonzo Ball and even LaMelo Ball, things haven’t been so good for LaVar.

LeBron has yet to see his son reach the NBA, but in a few short years, there’s no doubt Bronny will join the association. Before Bronny chooses a college, LaVar has some advice for the young star, and that’s to go play professionally in Australia, as LaMelo Ball has done.

“It’s better over here. Why? Because you playing against grown men and you getting paid,” Ball told The Sporting News. “If you want to play basketball and you really that dude, why am I sitting in class trying to pass a chemistry test? I don’t want to play no chemistry. I don’t want to practice no Spanish.

“I want to wake up, go practice, go back to sleep, go practice, have a game, practice. That’s all I want to do. I don’t wanna be like, ‘Hey, I’ll meet you in the student union for study hall.'”

As mentioned, LaMelo played in Australia’s NBL, and he not only learned how to play professional ball but he got paid for it, too. This may be a good option for Bronny. We wonder if he’ll actually consider it.
