"This is dad to dad. It's a problem now."

LaVar Ball recently made an appearance on Chris Broussard's "In The Zone" podcast in which he made a comment about how his sons have a better chance of success in their future basketball careers than LeBron James' kids because Bron's kids will always be compared to the legend of their father.

Per ESPN,

"The monsters in the NBA, their dads wasn't that good," Ball said. "They were OK, they was players, but the fact that the old [Dell] Curry wasn't no All-Star, he wasn't cold. He could shoot the ball, though. Kobe Bryant, his dad wasn't all that, that's why he's such a monster.

"You got LeBron, it's going to be hard for his kids because they are going to look at them like, 'You got to be just like your dad.' And after a while, that pressure starts sitting on you like, 'Why do I got to be just like him? What can't I just be me?' And then they are going to be like, 'Aw, you're soft, you're not that good.' Because the expectation is very, very high."

Here's what LeBron had to say in regards to LaVar's comments on the podcast, per ESPN

“He can talk all about his brand, talk about his sons, talk about basketball, talk about me. But keep my family out of this.”

“Keep my kids’ name out of your mouth, keep my family our of your mouth,” James said.

"This is dad to dad. It's a problem now."

LeBron made sure to mention that he doesn't have any issues with LaVar's son Lonzo, who has led UCLA to a Sweet 16 matchup against Kentucky on Friday night.

"I actually like his son," James told ESPN. "I like his game."
