The Wait is over–LaVar and Lonzo Ball’s family reality show is finally here.
Facebook just dropped the trailer for “Ball in the Family”, a reality show featuring the Ball brothers and starring their father, LaVar Ball.
The reality show has been in the works for quite some time as LaVar’s flamboyant nature has become must-see and has gained the attention of everything media.
Although Lonzo, former UCLA star point guard and NBA rookie guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, and LaMelo, Chino Hills High School’s star junior point guard, are the actual ballers in the family that make headlines with their play, LaVar has turned heads and raised antennas by using his mouth.
From outlandish statements about his son Lonzo’s greatness and comparing him to Stephen Curry, to insisting that he himself would beat the goat, Michael Jordan, in one-on-one, LaVar’s bravado has made fans and enemies or at the very least made people pay attention.
Father Ball’s antics–which he admits are for publicity and branding of the Big Baller Brand–along with the Ball brother’s skills have made the entire family must-see tv.
So far, the oldest Ball brother, Lonzo, has lived up to the hype and the expectations put on him by his father’s proclamations. In NBA Summer League he was named MVP, and although it’s just Summer League, Lonzo has certainly given the Lakers and their fans a reason to believe he’s exactly what LaVar says he is.
Although the reality show doesn’t seem to feature LiAngelo, the middle brother and current guard at UCLA, fans will get a close and personal look at two of the Ball brothers, father LaVar Ball, and mother Tina Ball.
