LaVar Ball’s home in Chino Hills, California was burglarized while he attended a high school playoff basketball game that his two younger sons played in Tuesday night.
Ball, who is also father to UCLA standout Lonzo Ball, has been making headlines recently for his obnoxious comments about his three sons’ talents, as well as his own after claiming he could have beaten Michael Jordan one-on-one.
“Everybody’s all right,” LaVar Ball told SportsCenter on Wednesday. “Chino Hills has got the best neighborhood watch in the world. As soon as you bust a window, they’re calling the police. That’s all they did, was break a window.”
Ball’s neighbors called police around 8 p.m. Tuesday after hearing a “suspicious crash sound” coming from the home next door, TMZ Sports reported. When the police showed up, the burglars were gone and a mound of the Ball’s belongings were left “as if they’d been rounded up.”
Ball’s oldest son, Lonzo, is expected to be among the top prospects picked in the NBA draft. The middle son, LiAngelo, is a senior in high school and will follow his older brother to UCLA next year. The youngest Ball brother, LaMelo, has two more years of high school left but will also go to UCLA.
LaVar Ball’s latest outrageous remark about his kids came earlier this week when he said they should get a package shoe deal to the tune of $1 billion.
