Cavaliers G Kyrie Irving was a guest on the Road Trippin podcast on Interrupted, which is hosted by his teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.
On the show, Irving gave his thoughts on LaVar and Lonzo Ball’s relationship:
“I’m sorry, LaVar, you’re not going to be in every hotel room that Lonzo is going to be in. You’re not going to be everywhere, and part of his life as he continues to grow up. You got to let go. He’s 19-years old. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want it to bypass him being a father, but he’s got to let Lonzo be Lonzo for the long haul.”
Also, Irving talked about how players are going to come at Lonzo during his rookie season:
“We’re going to go at him because he’s going to be a rookie,” Irving said. “He’s coming into the point guard position. That right there is … I mean, you think about it, you go through the top 10 point guards in the league, no matter what LaVar says or what he believes, we’re all going to come at him, and that’s just competition outright.”
Can’t wait for the first Ball-Irving matchup!
