LaVar Ball isn’t just an intense basketball dad who yells about how great his son is on television and gets himself into hot water by always talking, he’s also an intense basketball coach for his AAU squad, the Big Ballers, who yells at them on the sidelines. On Saturday during a blowout loss at the hands of the Compton Magic, Ball tried to light the fuse of his team at halftime by going off on them, questioning their effort on both ends of the floor and even calling out kids specifically.
In the first video, Ball asks for a better defensive effort and tells one kid to play defense and “stop worrying about getting dunked on,” while also imploring to play entertaining basketball on the offensive end — which he said they clearly weren’t doing considering they had only 25 points at the half.
In the second video, he calls out his point guard (possibly his son LaMelo, the camera doesn’t pan far enough over) for a lack of leadership and trying to isolate too much against double and triple teams. Ball tells his point guard and the rest of the team to pass the ball more in the second half because no one will pass unless he yells for a pass to be made.
