LaVar Ball: 'Slow white guys' kept UCLA from winning title, Lonzo played hurt in loss

  LaVar Ball: 'Slow white guys' kept UCLA from winning title, Lonzo played hurt in loss UCLA's season is done and Lonzo Ball is headed to the pros, but his dad has plenty more to say. In an interview with the Orange County Register, Ball discussed the Bruins' tourney exit, heaping the blame on UCLA's white players for being unathletic and revealing Lonzo apparently had a hamstring injury."Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow," Ball said. "I told Lonzo - 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out the that was the one game. Then once they get to the Elite 8, they're right there.

NYC radio host Steve Somers owned LaVar Ball during an incredible interview on Tuesday night. You really have to listen to the entire 20 - minute interview to get the gist of how Somers was able to dismantle Ball ’s various points. (it's well worth your time!)

Do you have 20 minutes to spare? No? Then let me convince you: Carve out 20 minutes and listen to the interview above between LaVar Ball and WFAN's Steve Somers from earlier this week.

For those who don't know, Somers is one of the quirkier radio hosts for the famous New York sports station - less aggressive and more intentionally funny than others like the famous Mike Francesa.

But from the start of this interview, Somers goes right at the father of UCLA star Lonzo Ball - giving him the floor to apologize to Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Michael Jordan and LeBron James - and the two proceed to verbally spar for 20 straight minutes.

DeMarcus Cousins on Lonzo Ball: ‘Never heard of him’

  DeMarcus Cousins on Lonzo Ball: ‘Never heard of him’ DeMarcus Cousins isn’t shy about throwing shade, and he threw a truck full of it in the direction of Lonzo Ball when asked about the soon-to-be NBA rookie. Cousins was asked by TMZ Sports for his thoughts on the best prospects coming out of March Madness. He listed off a few, including Malik Monk and any players coming out from Kentucky, his alma mater. But when he was asked about the former UCLA star guard he said he’s “never heard of him,” while adding, “His dad is a legend.”One has to believe Ball will get more than his fair share of verbal jabs when he does start playing against NBA stars.

Charlotte Observer (blog) LaVar Ball , continuing his media trip around America, landed on a New York radio show this week and got his comeuppance, sort of. In a winding and entertaining 20 - minute interview , WFAN New York radio host Steve Somers took Ball to task about his.

Some other highlights:

At about the three-minute mark, Somers and Ball argue over whether the basketball center of the universe is New York City or Los Angeles. "There is no L.A.," Somers says. "There are 45 suburbs looking for a city."

Somers calls him out for saying his son was better than Curry, that LaVar was better than Jordan, and wonders if he's putting too much pressure on his son. When the host says (a bit tongue-in-cheek) Ball believes his son has yet to prove himself, the father says Somers has some Howard Cosell in him, probably meaning that he's coming hard at Ball.

Eight minutes in, Somers rattles off Ball's college stats at West Los Angeles College to him. The back-and-forth is fantastic:

Ball: I averaged 24 points [at West L.A.]!

  100-year-old light bulb found. It still works A bulb that may have been burning since the early 1900s has been discovered glowing dimly in the basement of the Fire Museum of York County. Dennis Kunkle, director of facilities for the York County History Center, sent pictures and a description of the old bulb to an antique radio forum, which told him about the origin of the dual filament bulb.The Phelps HYLO, "HIGH-LOW" bulb, patented in 1904, was designed to save electricity.According to a period advertisement: "One cent will buy electricity enough to run a HYLO turned down for 12 hours ...

LaVar Ball may have gotten his comeuppance on a New York radio show this week, but he also asked to be called again. In a winding and entertaining 20 - minute interview , WFAN New York radio host Steve Somers took Ball to task about his comments on NBA greats Stephen Curry, Russell

Foxx told syndicated radio host Big Boy.

Somers: Oh, stop it.

11 minutes: Somers demands Ball owes James an apology.

13 minute-mark: The pair call each other "insane."

A minute later, Somers thinks Ball - ironically - is trying to be Charles Barkley. "WHY WOULD I WANT TO BE CHARLES!?" Ball replied.

It goes on from there, and when Somers called it a night, Ball actually sounds happy that he participated in such a heated debate.

"Hey, we're all right, man!" he shouted. "Call me again!"
