Born In: Los Angeles, California, United States
LaVar Ball is an American businessman and a popular media personality. He became hugely infamous after his comments about the ‘National Basketball Association’ (NBA) and its players. He once claimed that he was a better basketball player than Michael Jordan and accused the team ‘Los Angeles Lakers’ of mismanaging one of his sons. He was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and played football and basketball in school. According to him, he was a highly competitive basketball player and was the star forward of his team. He further played football and basketball at the college level and had a short stint with the ‘London Monarchs’ in the ‘World League of American Football’ (WLAF). He joined the practice squad of the ‘New York Jets’ and the ‘Carolina Panthers’ but never managed to play a professional football match of the ‘National Football League’ (NFL). In 2016, he launched ‘Big Baller Brand,’ a sports apparel company, and in late 2017, he laid the foundation of the ‘Junior Basketball Association’ (JBA). He funded the ‘JBA’ entirely through the money he had earned from his business endeavors. He faced several charges of racism and sexism and is one of the most polarizing and controversial public figures in the American sports arena.
