Yes, Google made the world believe that for a brief period of time, for the most of Tuesday morning to be precise, that Ball is the NBA founder. And the statement didn’t sound anything far from what LaVar Ball would explain himself as.
He was allowed to live up his dream. This happened just for a brief time on a Tuesday morning if you searched for “NBA founder” LaVar Ball’s name and information popped up. If you googled that on Tuesday, you were among those who saw Ball’s name as the recommended result. No one, we are sure, was looking or hoping to see that answer.
What Caused this Chaos?
Clearly, this was caused by a faulty algorithm. Something somewhere went wrong along the line and all the systems were affected by it. The NBA league was originally founded by an association of arena owners in the mid of 1940’s. It was given its current name after a merger with a rivaling league. This all happens approximately about 2 decades before LaVar Ball was born. But a fact like this has not been able to lower Ball’s self-esteem by a speck previously.
Google gave a statement saying that “Clearly we dropped the ball,”. They also additionally said that “We’re taking a timeout to huddle around the issue and expect to rebound soon.”
Google follows a very subtle process when a person is looked for on its searching engines. It takes it account a number of web pages and comes up with an answer familiar with the workings of the organization’s procedure said. It still remains a mystery how LaVar Ball, who is the father of Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMeloe and the legitimate maker of Big Baller Brand ended up as National Basketball Association aka NBA founder on the search engine.
Once this leaked on social media channels, Google rectified it immediately. They changed his short bio to “Media Personality”. No person got the credit for initiating NBA. Lawyer Maurice Podoloff, the first commissioner of the league (1946-1949), along with Syracuse National Owner Danny Biasone made the game popular. They applied different tactics like inventing 24-second shot clock in 1954. Whereas, LaVar Ball came on this earth 13 years later this happened. He could no way be NBA founder.
LaVar Ball made an announcement last month about his future ventures. He said that he is starting a basketball league. This league would consist of the best high school players. These players would be able to play in the league after their senior year or becoming eligible for NBA teams. Therefore, this league would be equal to going to the college for one year. Also, they would pay the young players as well.
People sent a lot of messages to LaVar Ball after this incident. He didn’t return those messages on time. The ball is, undoubtedly, the founder of Big Baller Brand and co-creator of Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball. But this doesn’t make him the NBA founder.
The ball is planning to start a league created for high school with a potential to be international players someday. He may not be NBA founder, but he is certainly has lived that glory for few precious moments.
