Nike Exec LaVar Ball Worst Thing Basketball George Raveling

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

But it appears that money won't come from Nike, as veteran executive George Raveling gave his opinion on LaVar on Thursday - and it wasn't pretty.

There have also been reports that other parents at UCLA are unhappy and annoyed by LaVar Ball, but he has more sons coming to the program so they better get used to him.

It appears highly touted National Basketball Association prospect Lonzo Ball might not land that $1 billion shoe deal - at least not from Nike.

"If he can get it, get it", Knight said of Ball's $1 billion asking price.

We all were wrong about the Chicago Bulls
He scored 20 points but made just six of 15 shots from the floor, missed six of his 13 free-throw attempts and had five turnovers. Stevens said that after services for Thomas' sister, the star guard intends to rejoin the team Friday for Game 3 at Chicago.

LaVar Ball is a hoops menace, according to George Raveling.

LaVar Ball "is the worst thing to happen to basketball in the last hundred years", Raveling told a World Congress of Sports event, according to Sports Business Journal. Six NCAA tournament appearances, three Pac-10 Coach of the Year awards and a gold and bronze medal as an assistant coach for the U.S. men's national team in '84 and '88 earned Raveling a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015. "That's our number, a billion, straight out of the gate".

It's only a matter of time before a sneaker brand signs Lonzo Ball, the projected first-round 2017 NBA Draft pick out of UCLA. "Give us $100 mil over 10 years". Lonzo, while talented, has yet to play in an National Basketball Association game, while siblings LiAngelo is entering college this Fall and LaMelo is still in High School.

"If he can get it, get it, " Knight said. "It's a little steep".
