LaVar Ball has been outspoken regarding his son Lonzo Ball’s future as a Los Angeles Laker. He even posited that Lonzo Ball is guaranteed to be picked by the Lakers in the NBA Draft. But the basketball dad may not be so sure about the future of his middle child, LiAngelo Ball.

The father and founder of Big Baller Brand was behind his oldest son Lonzo Ball so much so that he even said that his son is probably better than The Golden State Warriors champion Steph Curry. Even after having said that, LaVar Ball tried to be a realist regarding the future of his second-oldest son.

In a GQ article published Wednesday, Lavar Ball suggested that all of his children may not be fortunate enough to make it to the NBA. He said that his son LiAngelo might be the be that doesn’t, and if not, his future will still be secure.

Lavar Ball confessed that he already told LiAngelo that he might be the one that doesn’t make it.

"I told my boys that one of them wasn’t going to make it. Because if you’ve got three, only one, maybe two make it to the NBA," he said. "He’s going to be taken care of either way."

However, Lavar Ball may have contradicted his doubt about his son LiAngelo's odd's of making the NBA in an earlier interview. Speaking with EPSN earlier this month, he explained how all of his sons will one day become Lakers.

"All my boys are gonna be one-and-done. Gelo [LiAngelo] is going [to] be one-and-done whether he's good or bad," LaVar Ball said. "I'm going to put him in the draft, hope they don't take him. Bring him into the Lakers as a free agent, let him wind up with his brother and watch how good they play together."

He added, "I'm going to do the same thing with Melo. And we get three of the Ball boys on the Lakers together, and we gonna go championship, championship, championship, championship, championship. You think I'm playing? You saw what they did in high school."

In the GQ interview, Lavar Ball suggested that if basketball doesn’t work out for him, LiAngelo Ball could have a future in modeling because he's "the handsomest" of his sons.

LaVar Ball may be right regarding his son’s future. Lonzo Ball, his oldest son, is poised to make his NBA debut next season. He’s expected to be picked No. 2 overall in Thursday’s draft. The 19-year-old guard averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds during his stint at UCL. He also shot 5.1 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from 3-point distance.

LiAngelo Ball, an 18-year-old college player, is perhaps not as talented as his brothers. NBA executives told the NBA that LiAngelo Ball, who is adept at shooting the ball, hasn’t made it onto their draft boards. However he still has a shot to improve, but right now his younger brother has already piqued the interests of scouts.

LaMelo Ball, 16, will be a junior at Chino Hills High School. He's a 6-foot-5 guard with excellent ball-handling skills and an impressive range from the 3-point line. He made the cut in ESPN's Top 25 player rankings for the Class of 2019. He is depicted as a first-round pick in early 2020 mock drafts and will apparently follow in his brother Lonzo Ball’s footsteps as he is expected to play at UCLA.
