Charles Barkley excoriates ‘no-talent’ Lavar Ball for ‘exploiting’ his kids

In a radio interview Wednesday, NBA legend Charles Barkley excoriated Lavar Ball for “exploiting” his kids, and said that he was a bad father.

“I just feel sadness that the media, CNN, ESPN, has given this guy a platform,” Barkley said. “He represents everything that is bad about sports. It’s all about him. I just feel bad for those kids.”

Barkley spoke about the matter on ESPN Radio’s “Golic & Wingo.”

“Everybody talking about how he might be a good father, this and that. No he’s not. He’s just exploiting his kids,” he said. “He’s all about Big Baller Brand. He has no foreseeable talent. He’s trying to make money on his kids, and I just feel sadness for those kids because they’re going to do whatever he tells them to do.

“I just don’t like the guy at all, plain and simple. And don’t tell me he’s a good father. Just because you exploit your kids, trying to make money because you have no talent, that does not make you a good father. That makes you exploiting your kids.

“And I don’t like the guy at all. And I wish they would quit putting him on television, because he has no talent whatsoever.”

Ball had been in the headlines recently because one of his sons had been arrested in China for shoplifting and President Donald Trump intervened to help him get back to the United States.

Rather than thank the president, Ball criticized him, and began a very public feud that played out in the headlines and Trump’s Twitter account.

After being suspended by UCLA, LiAngelo Ball and his brother LaMelo Ball have signed to play with the Lithuanian team.

    I’ve said this before when all this nonsense started. LaVar Ball is a no talent hack who needs to shut his ghetto mouth. Sports Media, The Lakers and who ever is allowing this jerk to have a platform need to stop it. This isn’t the NFL. Noone wants this big mouth thug on tv and as a fan and a sports media owner, I am sick to death of hearing anything this buffoon has to say and allowing it is just hurting the NBA. Fans are sick to death of this thug mentality. Most every fan I know and talk to cannot stand this idiot and are tired of reading about his antics. He is a joke as a father. Barkley is 100% right, LaVar is doing nothing more than exploiting his kids. The Lakers would be smart to ban him or trade Lonzo Ball and rid themselves of a nightmare on the horizon!
