LaVar Ball says 'white guys' comment was misunderstood: 'I love those guys'
LaVar Football, the dad of former UCLA celebrity Lonzo Football, said feedback he made about his son's white-colored group members were misinterpreted.
"I really like those people," LaVar Football said Saturday.
Ball was estimated Friday by the Southeast Florida Information Team as saying the Bruins missing to The state of kentucky in the NCAA competition because his son harmed his hamstring muscle during the activity and "realistically you can't win no tournament with three white-colored people because the feet rate is too slowly."
Ball tried to explain those feedback Saturday during interviews with ESPN 710 LA. "I am not saying I don't like the white-colored people and we missing because of them. No -- that's how they turned it up," he said.
Ball's feedback seemed to be a referrals to UCLA beginners TJ Foliage, Johnson Welsh and Bryce Alford, the son of trainer Bob Alford.
"I really like Bryce because he's Alford's son and he's always been awesome to me," Football said. "TJ Foliage -- Zo's buddy, always awesome and well-mannered. Johnson Welsh -- one of their most brilliant gamers, very awesome, well-mannered.
"But like I said, they're going to do their factor and we're going to do our factor. So don't use your emotions on your sleeve and think it's a immediate impact at you people, because it's not."
Ball also said he was not accusing Foliage, Welsh and Alford for the loss.
"I fault one individual when they reduce and it's the same individual at all times. It's my son," Football said. "He's at the top of the top side and I fault him regardless if he had 30 factors and 20 helps. Regardless of. It's already been said. Like he said, he did not make enough performs for his group to win."
Lonzo Football will go into the NBA set up and is estimated to be selected with one of the top chioces. He completed his last higher education activity with 10 factors, 8 helps and 4 turnovers while The state of kentucky point secure De'Aaron Fox obtained 39. Foliage and Isaac Hamilton obtained 17 factors each to cause UCLA.
When achieved by ESPN on Saturday for reaction to LaVar Ball's preliminary feedback, Bob Alford said UCLA will "respectfully decrease to opinion."
