De'Aaron Fox's dad has strong words for Lonzo, LaVar Ball

MEMPHIS, TN - MARCH 24: De'Aaron Fox #0 of the Kentucky Wildcats drives to the basket against Lonzo Ball #2 of the UCLA Bruins in the first half during the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament South Regional at FedExForum on March 24, 2017 in Memphis, Te

LaVar Ball, father of likely No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball, has wasted no opportunity to thrust himself into the spotlight by providing a constant supply of hot takes, bold claims and boisterous statements.  On Wednesday, we received a glimpse of the father of fellow top prospect De'Aaron Fox -- and he had some strong words for Lonzo and LaVar.

In response to previous comments from LaVar suggesting De'Aaron 'can't mess with Zo', Aaron Fox referenced his son's on-court performance in a pair of showdowns with Lonzo last season.

“My son already ate his ass up twice,” Aaron Fox says of Lonzo Ball. “[LaVar] can say what he wants to say. I just tell him to go back and watch the film. That’s it. All that yap, yap, yapping, I don’t even got to respond to that. We played them twice. Twice his son got outplayed. I always tell [De’Aaron], let your game speak for it. You ain’t got to talk. You ain’t got to fuss.”

With both players expected to go in the top-five picks of Thursday's NBA Draft, we can expect to see plenty of comparisons between the two point guards going forward.

Could a budding basketball dad rivalry be in the works?
