LaVar Ball knows how to keep himself in the media and this time he came for the Golden State Warriors, Head Coach, Steve Kerr.
After LaVar's head coaching debut in Lithuania, he had a press conference where he called Steve Kerr the "Milli Vanilli" of coaching.

Fans of the Warriors and Steve Kerr were not here for it...
Lmao Steve Kerr is a 5x Champion as a player when his coaches were Phil Jackson & Gregg Popovich (2 of the best NBA coaches ever) but yeah he probably didn’t pick up much from those guys.. LaWannabe won a couple high school games & thinks he’s sick https://t.co/ywUon8iav1— •vZ• (@vzdoesit) January 29, 2018
I hope my fellow media colleagues do the right thing and just ignore LaVar on this one. 🙄— Poor Man's Commish (@poormanscommish) January 29, 2018
If you check @jmiklovas TL you can hear the audio. Totally unsolicited attack on @SteveKerr after the reporter asked an otherwise innocuous question about how it felt to be named coach. https://t.co/3BDNsyeL1C
Even Michael Rapaport weighed in on the comments:
2x World Champion Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr was called “the Milli Vanilli of coaching” by LaVar Ball and @MichaelRapaport wonders that if coaching is so easy, why LaVar didn’t teach his kids how to shoot properly. pic.twitter.com/DySAXOnV38— Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) January 30, 2018
Steve Kerr often urges and asks the media to not cover LaVar and this time was no different. When asked about Lavar's comments towards him, he refused to address it:
Steve Kerr wouldn’t bite when asked about LaVar’s comments: “Basketball only.” pic.twitter.com/RuSbbZ1uGz— Logan Murdock (@loganmmurdock) January 29, 2018
