Ben Simmons' Sister: "I Hope My Brother Dunks On Lonzo Ball So Hard"

LaVar Ball did not make himself many new fans with his controversial showdown with FS1's Kristine Leahy on Wednesday. This morning, Ben Simmons' sister went in on LaVar and his son, NBA Draft hopeful Lonzo Ball.

LaVar Ball went on The Herd yesterday to discuss his son's Draft prospects after Tuesday night's lottery, and of course, his Big Baller Brand. That turned into a highly contentious moment with Leahy, Colin Cowherd's co-host on the show. Ball, who refused to turn to look at her at any point, told her to "stay in her lane," and laughed off the notion that he should try marketing to women.

Olivia Simmons, sister of last year's No. 1 pick Ben Simmons, was clearly unimpressed by Ball's statements, and spent this morning dragging him and his son on Twitter.

We don't think she's alone in that particular fantasy.

Simmons sat out the 2016-17 season rehabbing from injury, but should be ready to make his NBA debut for the Philadelphia 76ers in the fall. He averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists during his only collegiate season at LSU in 2015-16.
