"You can't win no championship with three white guys."
LaVar Ball recently told the Southern California New Group the real reason he feels the UCLA Bruins were knocked out of the NCAA Tournament in the Sweet 16.
First, LaVar said his son Lonzo was hampered by a hamstring injury, although Lonzo never mentioned it and head coach Steve Alford indicated that he thought his player was fine.
Second, LaVar said UCLA was ousted from the Tournament because, "you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow."
"Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow."
"I told Lonzo, 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out that was the one game," LaVar Ball added. "Then once they get to the Elite Eight, they're right there."
LaVar was obviously talking about the three white UCLA starters TJ Leaf, Bryce Alford and Thomas Welsh.
His eldest son Lonzo is projected to be a Top-3 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, while his middle son, LiAngelo, will be playing for the Bruins next season. The youngest son, LaMelo, is already committed to UCLA in the class of 2019.
