The twitter universe was not kind to LaVar Ball on Friday night after his son Lonzo and his UCLA teammates lost to Kentucky in the sweet 16. The same guy who has been running his mouth non stop about how UCLA is going to win the title and how his son is better than Steph Curry and how he is going to get a billion dollar sneaker deal for his kids, was forced to just shutup and eat his own words as he watched Lonzo put up a dismal performance in his final college game.

Now, Lonzo has looked very good all season long but on the biggest stage he was upstaged by another freshman, Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox, who dropped 39 points compared to only 10 for Ball as Kentucky won 86-75. He definitely did not look like someone that will be selected with the top pick of the NBA draft.

With all that in mind, twitter let LaVar have it and I’m sure it won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Despite all the hate his father draws from the general public, alot of people are rooting for Lonzo to live up to the hype that his father has set forth. It just won’t be easy at the next level.
