LaVar Ball is abroad in Lithuania, but still somehow managing to undermine the Lakers with recent comments that Lonzo would refuse to re-sign with the team unless they signed all three of his sons.
Colin thinks most of what LaVar says is irrelevant, but his most recent remarks create a serious crisis for Magic and the organization.
On a weekend where Magic wants to use hosting the All-Star Game as a showcase to potential free agents, LaVar’s comments couldn’t come at a worse time. Colin believes if L.A. plans to make an aggressive run at LeBron James and Paul George or other top shelf players, they have to at least consider getting the constant distraction of LaVar out of the picture by trading Lonzo.
Colin likes Lonzo as a player, but if the choice is between sticking with him in a long term rebuild or creating an overnight super team with LeBron James and Paul George, Rob Pelinka and Magic have to at least start taking calls.
“Magic Johnson has a real crisis on his hands, and I would be surprised if he and Rob Pelinka aren’t talking about the possibility of trading Lonzo Ball.”
