Raveling, a Basketball Hall of Famer, then continued to give his assessment of LaVar Ball, saying Lonzo Ball should receive automatic entry into heaven for having him as a father, according to The Postgame.

During a panel discussion at the Sports Business Journal's 2017 World Congress of Sports on Thursday, Nike executive George Raveling said LaVar Ball is "the worst thing to happen to basketball in the last hundred years".

Nike's co-founder, Phil Knight, called Ball's demand a bit expensive but re-iterated the company is interested in the his sons.

Without this metabolic pathway, cells can't produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a chemical unit of energy currency. At oxygen levels low enough to be fatal to humans within minutes, the creatures kept going for at least five hours .

Raveling's credentials? He played hoops at Villanova from 1957-1960 and coached at Washington State, Iowa and USC, compiling a 335-293 record and taking all three schools to the NCAA tournament.

"It's a little steep, " said Knight, and of Lonzo Ball he added, "He's an awfully great player". "That's our number, a billion, straight out of the gate". Lonzo, while talented, has yet to play in an National Basketball Association game, while siblings LiAngelo is entering college this Fall and LaMelo is still in High School. "Give us $100 million [per year] over 10 years".

In the same March interview, LaVar boasted he "would kill" Michael Jordan one-on-one during his playing days and argued Lonzo already is better than two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry. "Yeah, we have an interest".
