LaVar Ball’s Former Football Teammates Say He Was ‘Garbage’ On The Field

LaVar Ball’s Former Football Teammates Say He Was ‘Garbage’ On The Field

LaVar Ball is starting to feel the heat from the angry mob that is the internet.

For the last two months LaVar, father of UCLA standout Lonzo Ball (and possible 1st pick in the 2017 NBA Draft), has made a name for himself by making some pretty ridiculous statements. From being able to beat Michael Jordan one-on-one, to trashing children of former NBA legends, LaVar has definitely ruffled a few feathers.

However, you might not know that LaVar spent some time in the NFL with the New York Jets and on the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad. He also had a brief stint with the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football where he had no catches and 28 kick return yards.

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, LaVar’s former Monarchs teammates were asked about his time playing professional football.

Specifically, Kevin McEntyre, a cornerback who was on the Monarchs with Ball, stated that,Man, he’s talking all that junk—and he was garbage. Personally, I think the most athletic people in the world are basketball players, and he actually wasn’t a bad athlete, to be honest with you. But he was no comparison to what his kids are—let’s just put it like that.”

One thing is for certain – the name Lavar Ball isn’t going away from the news anytime soon.

This morning, news broke that Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame receiver and NFL Network commentator Michael Irvin is being investigated in a sexual assault case after a 27-year-old woman who told police she feared that Irvin had “drugged and raped her” after a night out.

We spoke exclusively to his attorney, Larry Friedman, after this news broke, and he told us the following information:
“The NFL has not been contacted, nor are they investigating these accusations at this time.”

“Michael was never alone with this woman in the hotel, she was with a group of friends.”

“These allegations came over a week ago.”

“Michael was completely blind sided by the allegations, and denies them vehemently”

“Michael Irvin does not pay extortion.”

“(The) Same situation happened last year, and no charges were filed.”

“Friend of the girl in (the) case say(s) it’s for the money, but I cannot give credibility to the source.”

“I have tried to contact the woman via phone (and there was) no answer. She also did not show up for work today.”

We will keep you posted on this breaking report, so make sure to stay tuned.

EXCLUSIVE: Walt Frazier – Lavar Ball Never Had A Career And Is Living Through The Eyes Of His Son

EXCLUSIVE: Walt Frazier – Lavar Ball Never Had A Career And Is Living Through The Eyes Of His Son
The Dirty - Jeff Spezio

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Chad Johnson – Alleged Baby Mama #6 Sues for DNA Test and Child Support

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Chad Johnson – Alleged Baby Mama #6 Sues for DNA Test and Child Support

The Dirty can exclusively reveal ex-NFL star Chad Johnson has been hit with a brand new paternity lawsuit … bringing his grand total of baby mamas to 6 and the woman is demanding he cough up child support ASAP.

A Florida woman named Alexia Farquharson hit Johnson with a paternity suit earlier this month.

Alexia is demanding the court order the ex-NFL star to submit to a DNA test. The woman is seeking for Johnson to cough up monthly child support and for him to cover her legal bills for having to file the paternity case.

Johnson has yet to respond to the allegations in court.

The legal battle couldn’t have come at a better time for the ex-NFL star … with him facing 2 separate lawsuits in which he is facing foreclosure of his homes in Florida due to him defaulting on payments for both.

If Chad turns out to be the father of the kid … it wouldn’t be his first rodeo … he has 7 kids from 6 different baby mamas. Back in 2015, he welcomed a baby girl with his then-girlfriend Crystal Bates.

The Dirty can exclusively reveal NBA star Nick Young has headed to court demanding the $722k default judgement awarded to his former business manager/high school coach be vacated … saying he never even knew he was being sued until recently.

Nick’s former business manager and consultant, Andre Chevalier, sued demanding $700k.

Chevalier – Nick’s high school basketball coach – signed on to be his business manager in 2007 … as he was entering the NBA draft. The deal they signed would pay 2% of Nick’s endorsement and basketball paychecks.

He had been paid off of Nick’s agent’s cut but later realized he was being screwed out of his cut on certain deals and sued for $700k in damages. Nick failed to respond to the lawsuit by the deadline and the judge awarded a default judgement to Chevailer … consisting of $655,571 (damages) + $65,557 (prejudgment interest) and $1,430 (other costs) for a grand total of $722,558.

Jay Cutler Proves He’s Funny When Drinking and Not Signed To NFL Team

I’m begging NFL teams to not sign Jay Cutler for the 2017 season because this guy is much better for Internet content when he’s unemployed and drinking Moet Rosé champagne on a Monday with his wife. former Hills star Kristen Cavallari.

This stuff is like $60 a bottle — no biggie for the Cut-Cavallari family — but it seemed to have Jay in good spirits while away on what looks to be a vacation before he has to get serious again about getting a job.

Jay’s now 33, which means if he got it together, he could play for about 10 more years and set all sorts of NFL records for INTs.

Or he could just say screw it, and live on his millions for the rest of his life and get drunk. The second option isn’t really sounding that bad, especially from where we’re sitting. His wife is making money doing her thing and, clearly, he’s enjoying life.
