LaVar Ball tells Southern California News Group (http://bit.ly/2nLy5DG ) that “realistically you can’t win no championship with three White guys because the foot speed is too slow.” The comment appears to be a reference to UCLA starters T.J. Leaf, Bryce Alford and Thomas Welsh.

Ball says his son “popped his hamstring” during the loss to Kentucky in the round of 16. Lonzo Ball never mentioned the injury publicly, but his father says “he’s never going to make excuses.”

Lonzo Ball is projected to be a top pick in this year’s NBA draft.
