EXCLUSIVE: Walt Frazier – Lavar Ball Never Had A Career And Is Living Through The Eyes Of His Son
Last night at the Garden of Laughs benefit at Madison Square Garden, we caught up with legendary Knicks alum Walt Frazier.
In our quick conversation with him, we got the chance to ask him his thoughts on Lavar Ball, who has been gaining a lot of attention, lately for his behavior in terms of trying to get all three of his children into the NBA. His comments to the media have also been stirring up some controversy as well.
We asked Frazier what his thoughts were on Ball, and, as an NBA legend, he had some very insightful things to share with us.
“I think it’s putting pressure on the kid,” Frazier told us of how Ball is acting. “But he (his oldest son) doesn’t seem to be like his Dad, which is good.”
“He’s overzealous,” Frazier continued. “I think it’s negative for his kid. I say you’re putting more pressure on his kid, what if he gets off to a poor start? They’re gonna crucify him. I wouldn’t do it for my kid. I want the best for him, but I would stay in the background.”
“He’s living through the eyes of his son,” Frazier wrapped with telling us. “He never had a career so now he’s trying to do it with his son.”
Frazier was an absolute delight to talk to, and we were thrilled to see him being so open about his thoughts on this current and controversial sports Dad.
