pretty shocking that the big balla coach assaulting a player has pretty much disappeared from the headlines in about an hour after it happened

if it had been a college coach he would still (rightly) be getting drug through the wringer, but I guess a little physical contact from a coach is not acceptable for "amateurs", but it is for the "pros"

How is that possible, if he's already made money playing basketball?  I thought both he and his brother could no longer go NCAA?

That was my understanding.

They're going to claim he never made any money overseas or off his signature shoe with Big Baller.  However, he already signed with an agent, which they'll try and get around by saying he never received benefits.  Regardless, this is more wishful thinking by the Ball's.  LaMelo will probably go overseas and then to the G League.  Also, there are major questions if any big schools, besides UCLA, would even recruit him.  Duke, Kentucky, Sparty and Kansas aren't expected to want him.  Basically, he can say whatever he wants..... it simply won't necessarily be true.

I don't even know why you'd take even if he's given the green light by the NCAA.  Their talent isn't worth the future headaches of the Dad calling out the coaches or school or threatening to take his son overseas twice a week.

Hey, I have this in common with him!  As well as "the likelihood of this ever happening."

they shitted away that draft pick and that playing time on that fucking fool and sadly La'Onzo has to suffer for it....at this point it is starting to be his fault too though he needs to nut up and tell his dad to fuck off and go fuck up his little brothers lives some more and leave him out of it

The sources described LaVar as "stunned" when the emails and documents were read to him. 

Lolz

Poor kid could have signed with actual big ballers like Nike or Adidas. Dad's greed trumped love, shame.

I feel so bad for a lot of these young kids making a lot of money early in life but not having the wisdom to manage it properly.  I hope Lonzo uses this crisis as an overall awakening to become a man and take control of his life and career to greater heights.  Better to find out now than later like say Kevin Garnett.

The others haven't made any money.  The middle one should be at UCLA right now but instead, his dad sent him to Europe only to bust.  Not sure what he's doing 10 years from now.

NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!  Big Ballers never die!  I mean Lavar knows all right?  RIGHT?  This is nothing but a setback.  Big Ballers ball out.... always.  They'll be back.  Has Gelo made the G League yet?

What happened with KG? He’s making like 5 mill a year for the next 7 years (year after he retired)

https://www.complex.com/sports/2018/09/kevin-garnett-sues-accountant-for-helping-wealth-manager-steal-77-million-of-his-money

Came out last year I think, first articles I just randomly googled, claim is over 75 million siphoned, etc.  Not sure what happened with it, but if this really happened with him, very good for a young guy like Lonzo to avoid years of this kind of stuff.

Those are some shitty looking dice. Should have just kept the other one as a reminder to not blindly trust anyone. 

 

In the end... They were just little ballers after all.

The NBA needs to add a section to its rookie orientation that says, “Fucking use Goldman or Merrill Lynch or one of the big banks’ wealth management people to oversee your funds instead of your cousin or an advisor who says he specializes in “athlete clients” - you fucking idiots.”

Yeah those big investment firms never rip people off!

But when they steal your money there's at least an entity to sue.

It wasn't until this week, the same sources said, that LaVar fully reviewed the email warnings and documents from Lukanga, as he had been traveling overseas with his younger sons in the fall. The sources described LaVar as "stunned" when the emails and documents were read to him. LaVar declined comment but issued a statement to ESPN calling the situation "devastating."

I think we found one of the main issues....la'var cannot read
