Basketball’s famous dad isn’t highly thought of by this executive.
LaVar Ball, the most-famous father in basketball, wants a $1 billion contract from an apparel company for he and his three sons.
Don’t expect Nike to give it to him.
George Raveling, an executive for The Swoosh and an influential figure in the basketball community, went off on Ball on Wednesday.
He called the father of UCLA star point guard Lonzo Ball the “worst” thing to happen to the sport in 100 years.
Wow, veteran Nike exec George Raveling on LaVar Ball: “The worst thing to happen to basketball in the last hundred years.” #sbjwcs

LaVar Ball is worthy of some criticism, but that’s a little excessive.
