Nike Exec. Says Lavar Ball is the "Worst Thing to Happen to Basketball"

If you follow basketball at all, you've probably inadvertantly heard of Lavar Ball.

Lavar is the father of NBA prospect Lonzo, and UCLA commits LiAngelo and LaMelo. He's been everywhere from ESPN to Fox Sports and most times being seen more than his basketball playing sons. Lavar has recently been shopping around for a billion dollar shoe contract for his three sons, but one Nike executive isn't too fond of the Ball patriarch.

There's been plenty horrible of things in basketball, from a racist owner to a gambling referee, so you'd have to go through your own rolodex of memories to decide for yourself if he has a point.
