LaVar Ball blames '3 white guys' for UCLA's NCAA Tournament loss

Give and Go NBA Playoffs Matchups We Want To See IMG

Unsurprisingly, LaVar Ball is more caught up on UCLA's elimination from the NCAA tournament than son Lonzo, whose injury-riddled performance against Kentucky sent his team home earlier than he - and Dad - had hoped. They try to twist it around because it's more interesting when (they) say 'LaVar is racist.' Like I said, I stated my opinion of what I thought.

On SportsNation, Ball never said playing for another franchise would make him unhappy.

The UCLA guard took college basketball by storm with his on-court panache this season, and turned pro as soon as the Bruins bowed out in the Sweet 16.

Read the full story here. And, according to LaVar Ball, they can't move very fast, either.

Lonzo Ball is a likely lottery pick in this summer's National Basketball Association draft, with ESPN's Chad Ford projecting him to go No. 2 overall in his latest mock draft.

Ball also said he was not blaming Leaf, Welsh and Alford for the loss.

While Ball might have wanted his son to score 30 points, Lonzo ended with just 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field, including a 1-of-6 effort from three-point range.

The celebrations were muted at the finish line due to the enormous effort put in by both shades of blue. So the Dark Blues crossed the finish line in 16.59, for a winning margin of one-and-a-quarter lengths.

There's not really anything wrong with Lonzo Ball preferring to play for his hometown team over being the #1 Pick.

When given a chance to clarify in an interview with "Tiki and Tierney" on CBS Sports Radio Friday, Ball insisted his comments were rooted in fact - not racism.

Lonzo Ball didn't come close to scoring 40 points in the loss to the Wildcats.

"I want to thank my UCLA family for a great season and for all of their support!"

"I'm not saying I don't like white guys and we lost because of them. No".

The elder Ball has been outspoken in the past about his son's abilities.
