LaVar Ball’s house was burglarized on Tuesday night during a Chino Hills basketball game in which his two younger sons were playing. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the Ball family’s possessions seem to have remained in place.
According to TMZ Sports, burglars broke a window to enter the family’s house. Because of the quick response of neighbors to call the police after hearing the crash, the burglars fled the scene without taking anything.
Ball has become famous for his brash confidence in his sons. Most prominently, Ball has spoken about his eldest son, Lonzo Ball (who could be a top-three pick in the 2017 NBA Draft), and his superstar potential. His younger sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, are currently in high school and have been widely covered as high school stars. Chino Hills lost a playoff game on Tuesday as the family’s home was intruded upon.
Of course, LaVar Ball had the most predictable reaction to the whole situation, via TMZ:
LaVar Ball just spoke about the incident … saying it appears only a window was broken at the home.
He then told ESPN, “I wish I was there! It ain’t hard to get in my home … it’s hard to get out.”
