18 Ridiculous Claims That Could Be Said By LaVar Ball

You mean there's a dumber claim than beating Michael Jordan in one-on-one?

18 Ridiculous Claims That Could Be Said By LaVar Ball
USA Today

Even if you don't follow sports, you've probably heard the name LaVar Ball tossed around the past few weeks. His son Lonzo plays college basketball at UCLA, and is expected to be a high pick in this summer's NBA Draft. LaVar Ball used to play college basketball himself at Washington State, just not with the impressive stats his son has at UCLA. Ball has received much criticism over the past weeks because of his ridiculous claims that he could beat Michael Jordan in one-on-one, that his three sons combined could be worth a billion dollars in future endorsement deals, that Lonzo is a better player than Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, and that Lonzo can become better than "Magic" Johnson if drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers.

If you think those claims are ridiculous, think about the claims he could make, and the comebacks you should be prepared with:

1. "I can be a better president than Donald Trump!"

That one is probably true.

2. "I could have outrun O.J. Simpson when he was in college and in the NFL!"

O.J. was pretty fast!

3. "I could have driven faster than O.J. Simpson's white Bronco during that chase!"

It would have been hard getting through that police "escort".

4. "If I murdered somebody, I could have been proven guilty faster than O.J.!"

Again, probably true, now enough with the O.J. jokes.

5. "I could coach and win more basketball games than Coach K, Jim Boeheim, and Bobby Knight combined!"

You'd probably be dead before that became a reality. Just a stretch!

6. "I'm the next Gregg Popovich in coaching!"

Can you give short answers to interview questions?

7. "I should be the Lakers coach because my boy, Lonzo, will be their next superstar!"

Even Kwame Brown played for the Lakers. Hold your horses!

8. "I can out-swear Gordon Ramsey!"

F*****' good one, you donkey!

9. "I can absolutely, 100 percent, beat Bobby Flay!"

Hey! There's a show on Food Network called "Beat Bobby Flay." You should try it!

10. "I can make a better movie than M. Night Shyamalan!"

It's very possible.

11. "I can bi-locate!"

You ain't got nothing on St. Padre Pio, bro!

12. "I can be worse than Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka!"

Too bad there's not an entire website dedicated to you. http://saynotograndpajoe.com/

13. "The Chicago Cubs will win the World Series someday!"

Dude, that happened last year.

14. "The Cleveland Indians will get to a World Series someday!"

Dude! Again! Happened last year.

15. "The Cleveland Browns will win a Super Bowl one day!"

Now you're talking!

16. "Manos: The Hands of Fate is the greatest movie of all-time!"

It's actually been considered the worst film ever made. You actually cringe while watching it!

17. "I can make a movie with more explosions than Michael Bay!"

Dear God, nobody wants to see that!

18. "I can write an article better than the fool writing this one!"

You think so? Then you should definitely apply for the Odyssey! I'll tell you who to contact.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
