According, to Master P, LaVar Ball has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and it’s not just his all-star basketball sons. In fact, Master P says the b-ball dad should be thankful for Donald Trump.
In a video on TMZ, Master P commented on the ongoing controversy between Ball and Trump. The media mogul thinks Ball owes the president a simple thank you for getting his son, LiAngelo Ball and several other UCLA basketball players out of a Chinese jail after they stole several thousands of dollars worth of items. According to P, it would be the Christian thing to do.
“I put God first, so I think that if somebody help you, that you be appreciative, that’s it,” he told TMZ. “It’s a blessing to have your kids back home…just be thankful that your kids are safe, he had something to do with your kid getting home. Right is right, wrong is wrong.”
While Master P may be dropping some knowledge, it's not likely that LaVar will budge on his stance. In a previous interview to CNN, Ball said that he refuses to thank Trump for anything because he didn’t do anything to help his son and friends. It also didn’t help that Trump tweeted shortly after, calling Ball an “ungrateful fool” and "a poor man’s version of Don King.” So it’s safe to say that Ball didn’t namedrop Trump when saying what he was thankful for at the dinner table yesterday.
