Most annoying sports story of 2017 so far: Lavar Ball or Tim Tebow?
Whether it’s saying mildly racist things or shamelessly plugging his brand, LaVar Ball and his ridiculous opinions have been shoved down our throat ad naseum—whether we want it or not. People love him. People love to hate him. He’s the perfect mule for clicks and engagement, so anytime he breathes a semi-worthy take, fans get bombarded from all angles. At least with Tebow, there may be an expiration date soon. But LaVar’s son, Lonzo, is looking like a future NBA star, so fans will have to endure this guy for a while.
After Tim Tebow was basically iced out of football, we thought it was finally the end of the media’s love affair with the former Florida Gator. But here we are again, talking about how Tebow fancies himself a baseball player. Every swing demands national attention, and every home run gets effusive praise. If that wasn’t enough, we have legion of fans defending his honor no matter how slight the criticism (R.I.P. our mentions—after saying he’s annoying, probably).
