Brother Lavar Ball said “Now you know … if they want to talk to me now, it just went up to $3 billion. Triple Bs — billion, billion, billion,” he said, adding: “That’s the only way they going to come at me. I’m already in the building. I don’t need them for nothing, as you can tell.”
He’s basically saying we did this on our own, we DON’T NEED YOU now if you want to do it pay what we are WORTH and that’s how we all should move when we are being used for our talent or mental ability.
