LaVar Ball has a new admirer. Dennis Graham, father of Drake, was asked his opinion on LaVar by a TMZ photographer this week, and from one famous dad to another, he had nothing but praise for Ball.

“I love [LaVar Ball] because he’s outspoken,” says Graham. “He’s an outspoken guy and that’s what you gotta be. You gotta speak your mind.”

While the fair share of people don’t seem to share the same sentiment for the Godfather of Big Ballers, Graham has no problem with the father’s headline-grabbing antics.

Ball certainly plays by his own rules, which is something Graham respects. “People have been kissing butts for too long,” he argued. “He doesn’t do that. He speaks his mind. I love that.”

Graham cosign could do wonders for the LaVar and Big Baller Brand. Better yet, it might even plant the seed for a future Lonzo Ball/Drizzy collabo track or a BBB x Drake sneaker given the rapper’s shaky situation with Jordan Brand.
