    The media eploits everything, the media says the relationship is going down the wrong path, all the media does is SPECULATE, and in turn that influences peoples thoughts, all this lavar vs lonzo media bs might turn lonzo against his father, what a shame

    Nobody would give a FFFRU*K about Lonzo had it not been for Lavar...that boy got torched in the tourney & played like garbage truck juice once drafted. It was lavar who kept promoting his boys...talking them up...fighting for them. The media would've crucified that man & wrote him off. Im not w/ people having so much input in child-parent relationships. Lonzo doesnt even have the p personality to promote himself. Why anyone would want to see a black father separated from his sons is beyond me.

    Eye disagree totally. Lavar made 1 mistake and that was putting Alan totally in charge. Every 1 wants his sons to hate Lavar because they don’t like him. He has been right about a lot more than wrong. HERE ME WELL NONE OF THESE BOYS WOULD BE ANYTHING without Lavar. If they turn on him. Years later they will regret it!!! Long Live BBB!!!!!!!

    Once it's time for Lamelo to enter the NBA...he should just shut LaVar out of everything to do with it. If he's stupid enough to allow him seeing what happened to Lonzo...then that's on Lamelo.

    All they have to do is just make BBB solely a clothing line so that all the kids can still get their footwear deals. Maybe do footwear down the line

    Good job getting them ready but that does not he is a good businessman. He, in fact is a horrible businessman. Now he is going to become a horrible parent. You don't call your child damaged goods.

  • Stephen Sutton

    Marcellus just can't fix his lips to say what needs to be said about Lavar. That's why he keeps pointing out his closeness to Lavar's brother's. I been said this dude was exploiting his kids from the very beginning with all that yelling and foolish talk about him beating MJ.
    The dude wanted to be in the lime light when it was his son's moment to shine. Lavar wanted to be seen and wanted to use his kids to get him rich. His kids were going to make it big and rich off the NBA and other endorsements, he was too quick to try and get his shine.
    All that talk of competing with NIKE, bruh anybody can talk big. But to get to where Nike is you gotta have more than a big mouth, your money ain't that long bruh.
    Now he calling his son damaged goods because the young man has lost faith in your failed attempt to get rich quick. As a father this dude took all he did do that was good and just blew that all up. He is a complete disgrace to what real fatherhood is about.

    I just hope Melo doesn't take the same path. U can see on ball in family that Melo clearly doesn't want to be part of BBB, yet he's being forced to take meetings with them. Hope he can stand up for himself.

    If it wasn't for LaVar.. there would be no conversation at all. He did what he thought was best for the boys and family. Does anyone think Lonzo would have gone so early in the draft if it wasn't for Lavar? No. Lavar's business skills aren't as great as he thinks they are. But how many did he get to buy those terrible $500 sneakers? And he didn't seem to be that much upset over all that money his "friend" ripped them off for. Now, they are in the news for the wrong reasons... sad.

    Sometimes what happens is that you start to believe other peoples accomplishments are yours. The father started to believe it was all him but in reality it was his son's

    Lavar May push his sons, but he’s been a father to them which is more than some men seem to have in them. I’d rather have an overbearing father who pushed me to my full potential than have a deadbeat Dad.

    @3:34 “I slept with that person to have children.....”

    Could cuttino Mobley found a better way to say that???? First of all Lavar was married. It’s not like he slept with a random girl.
    He could have said “Me and my wife had children....” and then made his point

    This is why family should not be in business together. Usually daddy builds the empire while lining the children's pockets. Then when daddy gets ready to retire he either gives the company to children or sells company and splits money with children.
