LaVar Ball I Have Zero Relationship With LeBron

EXCLUSIVE

How’s the biggest sports dad on the planet coexisting with the biggest athlete in the universe??

Quietly … ‘cause LaVar Ball tells TMZ Sports he and LeBron James stay outta each other’s way in Los Angeles — and things have gone along just fine.

“I really don’t have a relationship with LeBron,” the big Baller says.

“I like it. He ain’t done nothing bad to me, I ain’t done nothing bad to him. So, as long as we good, we’ll be all right.”

Of course, that’s music to Luke Walton‘s ears … ‘cause when Bron bolted from the Cavs to play with Lonzo and the Lakers — how LaVar would fit in the picture was on everyone’s mind.

Seems LaVar is playing nice for now … although he did issue an ultimatum to L.A.’s coach when we got him at LAX — saying if Luke doesn’t play Zo more than 35 minutes a night, his job is in jeopardy.

“If he keep playing Lonzo a lot — over 35 minutes — he’ll stick around,” Ball says. “Less, he won’t.”

No pressure …

Dahntay Jones If LaVar Ball Stays Quiet … Duke Would Love LaMelo!

EXCLUSIVE

Dahntay Jones tells TMZ Sports LaMelo Ball would be a great fit at Duke … ONLY IF LaVar Ball stays quiet.

Of course … Melo’s recruitment is wide open these days — especially after LaVar said there’s no way in hell LaMelo follows in his brothers’ footsteps to UCLA.

Jones — an ex-Duke star — says he could see a place for Melo with Coach K … but says the Big Baller has to keep out of the limelight … something he’s been able to do recently.

“If [LaVar] can coexist like this, I think Duke would be a place for him. If LaVar operates like this right now, I think Coach K could find a way.”

LaVar did make waves earlier this week for saying Melo is better right now than LeBron James was as a teenager — but Jones says that statement wasn’t THAT outlandish.

“That’s what happens when you have sons. I think my son is better than LeBron in grade school right now … That’s just natural love for his son.”

Bottom line … Dahntay says it’s the meddling with coaches, rosters, game plans and teams that LaVar needs to stay away from if he wants to see Melo at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

“Just be a normal parent and operate like this and let his son’s talent speak for itself.”
