LaVar Ball has been in a cheerful mood since his son Lonzo was drafted No. 2 by the Lakers in this year’s NBA draft. 76ers big man Joel Embiid changed that, though, when he mouthed off about him on Instagram live.

It probably didn’t thrill Ball when Embiid said this, either…

LaVar finally broke his silence and as expected had not-so-nice things to say about Embiid.

Via TMZ:

“The reason he said that, he’s got three words, because his vocabulary is limited. You gotta use cuss words when you don’t have no intellect.

“He’s not intelligent at all. He’s worried about me? He should be worrying about playing.

“I got three words for him: Can’t. Play. At. All. Oh shoot, that’s four.”

Say what you will about the Ball family, but you can’t deny they’ll make the NBA a million times more exciting as long as they’re relevant.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but count me in on every Sixers-Lakers matchup.
