LaVar Ball bluntly attacked NBA coach Gregg Popovich in a recent interview with Vlad TV, voicing his contempt for the well-known basketball coach. LaVar didn’t hold back in his criticism.

Popovich was asked to “Shut the hell up” by LaVar around the 2:40 mark in the interview, and he strongly cautioned him not to speak in public. LaVar’s candidacy and his readiness to take on powerful people in the basketball world are best demonstrated by his straightforward and aggressive style.

Back in 2018 coach Popovich called LaVar “Fan from the peanut gallery” and LaVar lost his composure when asked about that very incident in the interview and urged Popovich to shut the hell up and stop thinking that he’s above anyone else.

LaVar Ball acknowledges Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s brilliance, downplays Phil Jackson’s impact

Renowned for his audacious remarks, LaVar Ball has once again courted controversy by refuting popular belief regarding the legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson.

Ball claimed recently on VladTV that the main creators of a team’s success are not coaches but rather athletes like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Jackson is widely regarded as one of the most successful coaches in sports history. He is honored for his 11 NBA Championships and his creative application of the triangle approach.

“I don’t think he (Phil Jackson) played a big role. I think they believed in him and let him do what they do. That’s it. I mean, you can draw up all the best Xs and Os, if you don’t have the players that thing ain’t going to work. You just drawing up great plays,” LaVar said.

LaVar’s remarks highlight his view on the superiority of great players above coaching techniques, which is consistent with his long-held beliefs. He argues that player talent and performance are more important than coaches’ influence, even in spite of the fact that Jackson’s coaching abilities have received great praise.
