LaVar Ball makes ‘small hands’ crack when sending Donald Trump sneakers (vid)

The war of words between LaVar Ball and Donald Trump has quieted down quite a bit in the time since to the two domineering personalities battled it out on social media and elsewhere a few months back. But a recently published video of the elder Ball on social media conceivably could amp things up once again.

Footage has surfaced of Ball putting together his promised care package of Big Baller Brand sneakers for Trump awhile back. In the video, Ball is shown packing up three pairs of red, white and blue ZO2 kicks for Trump. But what likely will garner the most interest in how Ball trolls Trump over his allegedly “small hands.”

“I know what size he wears. Size 10!” Ball says of Trump in the clip. “Cuz his feet ain’t that big. Small hands.”

The feud between Ball and Trump stemmed from a disagreement over the level of the President’s involvement in getting LiAngelo Ball, along with two other UCLA Bruins players, out of China in the midst of a shoplifting scandal.

Ball of course has mastered the art of publicity and self-promotion. He also appears to adhere to the philosophy that there’s no such thing as publicity. Ball continues to oversee of the Euro basketball careers of sons LiAngelo and LaMelo.

And then there’s how the elder Ball has drawn the ire of several NBA coaches and media members over his criticism of Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton as he continues to meddle in son Lonzo’s rookie season. With all that in mind, expect Ball to continue, right or wrong, to receive over-saturated media coverage.
