The LaVar Ball Reality Show – Now Who Didn’t See This Coming?

Lonzo Ball’s Summer League debut in Lakers-Clippers game was, well, nothing to get excited about. But his NBA star son’s bad game isn’t the kind of thing that will ever get showboating, loudmouth NBA dad LaVar Ball down for long.

TMZ’s camera caught the elder Ball out on a shopping trip and he was in fine form—bragging on his brand and slagging the competition. The competition in this case, bizarrely, was the Kardashian clan.

Because yeah, that’s right, the Ball family is getting their own reality show. Deadline reported Thursday that we can thank Facebook’s push into original video production for that:

. . .[A] yet-to-be-titled docuseries about the Ball family, whose sons Lonzo, Liangelo and LaMelo have taken the basketball world by storm. Freshman UCLA star Lonzo Ball was chosen by the Los Angeles Lakers as their No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft last month. Liangelo and LaMelo are stand-outs at Chino Hills High School.

TMZ asked if this show would make his family the basketball version of the Kardashians. He clearly didn’t think so and didn’t really like the comparison, saying (among other things)

“I ain’t no Kardashian, I ain’t Kris Jenner. We the Balls, welcome to the Ball era.”

Yeah, ok LaVar…anyways…Will you be watching??
