Brandon Jennings: '#LavarBallSays Bucks in 6'

Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

MILWAUKEE, WI - APRIL 25: Brandon Jennings #3 of the Milwaukee Bucks dribbles around LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat during Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at Bradley Center on APRIL 25, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The father of potential No. 1 pick Lonzo Ball has said some audacious things. Among LaVar Ball’s claims: He would’ve beaten Michael Jordan one-on-one, his son will be better than Stephen Curry, his son is better than Stephen Curry, his son will play only for the Lakers, his sons are demanding a $1 billion shoe deal.

My favorite part of LaVar Ball’s media tour? Brandon Jennings’ participation in the hashtag it sparked:

Jennings, of course, infamously predicted “Bucks in 6" when Milwaukee (38-44) faced the LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh Heat in the 2013 first round. Miami swept the Bucks.

But at least Jennings can laugh at himself, and we can partake.

For what it’s worth, I think LaVar Ball can also handle being the butt of jokes – as long as he’s getting attention. And on that last note, ditto with Jennings.
