Ben Simmons‘s sister Olivia seems to have taken exception to LaVar Ball‘s endless grandstanding and his comments about women. The sister of the Philadelphia 76ers forward tweeted her desire to see Ball’s NBA prospect son, Lonzo, get dunked on when he finally enters the league.
Her issue is definitely with his comments about women, as she stopped subtweeting for a moment to call out Ball’s marketing snafu from Wednesday.
Simmons can say such things because it’s almost certain the Los Angeles Lakers will take Lonzo second overall at next month’s draft. With Philadelphia in the No. 3 spot, they’ll look elsewhere in the Draft. Still, Olivia Simmons will be watching closely when the Lakers and Sixers tip off.
Her beef does seem to fall squarely on LaVar Ball’s words. His son just happens to be the collateral damage here.
