Sure, LaVar successfully predicted that his son Lonzo would be drafted by the Lakers. But are the Lakers really 24 wins better than last year? From ESPN’s First Take to (starting at 0:47).
What the Lakers going to do this year man?
LaVar: Fifty-plus wins.

Fifty wins? And you’re going to say that with a straight face?
LaVar: Five-O. Very easy. And you know how I tell my son how to do it? Every 20 games, you got to go 15-5 at the least. We went over there at UCLA, how many times he lose? He not a loser, he a winner.
