LaVar Ball was not a happy man when he found out that the Los Angeles Lakers had traded his son, Lonzo Ball, as part of their package for New Orleans Pelicans star big man Anthony Davis.

The former No. 2 overall draft pick, along with Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and several first-round picks, is heading to NOLA in exchange for the 26-year-old All-NBA forward.

LaVar Ball made some bold claims following the trade.

"I guarantee: Like I say again, it will be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they will never win another championship," LaVar Ball told ESPN on Saturday. "Guarantee it.

"They're going to regret it. I'm going to have fun with it. Because I told you all, it was crashing down. Now [the Lakers] completely crashed, but at least my son got off the boat before the thing exploded. I gave them a chance. You can rewind it and go back. I said if you get the three Ball brothers, you can survive this. You let him go, oh, it's going to be a cold day in hell. Trust and believe that."

LaVar Ball was at LaMelo Ball's Drew League game on Saturday when news of the trade was broken.

Video appears to show how LaVar Ball reacted when he heard the news.

LaVar's dream of his three sons - Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo - all playing for the Los Angeles Lakers appears to be over.

The Pelicans will be a fun squad, though, especially once Zion Williamson is officially taken at No. 1 overall.
