Big Baller Brand, LaVar Ball

LaVar Ball had a big night. His son was drafted No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, fulfilling a lifelong dream. He also got to unveil Lonzo Ball’s ugly new ZO2: SHO’TIME edition sneakers. Then, as he left the Barclays Center, he was booed.

In defiance of the boo-birds, Ball threw his Lakers-colored Big Baller Brand hat into the stands.

Here is some video of the exchange.

It’s hardly shocking that Ball soaked up the boos like a rock star soaks up adoration. He loves this stuff.

It really is a perfect ending to a perfect night for LaVar Ball and the entire Ball clan.
