DeMarcus Cousins claims he’s never heard of Lonzo Ball but called LaVar a ‘legend’
With the amount of attention LaVar Ball has generated the past weeks, it’s difficult not to know who his son is, as Lonzo has become almost synonymous with him. However, it appears that DeMarcus Cousins is one of the few people from the basketball community who apparently doesn’t.
The New Orleans Pelicans center was asked by TMZ Sports who impressed him the most from the recently concluded NCAA Tournament, and as expected, he dropped names of his fellow Kentucky Wildcats. He didn’t share his thoughts on the UCLA guard and even went as far as claiming that he’s never heard of him. He acknowledged the older Ball though, who he called a “legend.”
LaVar Ball caused a quite a stir because of his bold and controversial comments of late, while his son made a name for himself as a projected top prospect in this year’s draft. He has drawn comparisons from some of the best players in the league today and given his skills, giving justice to his high projection in the coming draft.
Boogie has been infamous for being outspoken especially during games. That said, he has been no stranger to receiving technical fouls for speaking his mind often and not holding back with his words. With LaVar also known to fire back at his critics and those who try to ridicule him, it’s interesting to see if he has something to say about this sarcastic shot from the Pelicans center.
