Lavar Ball is a famous parent of 3 high quality basketball players.

His oldest son is Lonzo Ball and plays for the LA Lakers. His other two kids play overseas in Lithuania.

Mr. Ball is known for always talking and bragging about his kids. He is always ranting about how good his sons are and how they are gonna be better than anyone basketball.

One of the most craziest comments he has made is that he can beat Michael Jordan.

Everyone knows that MJ is one of the best to ever play and Lavar barely played high school. This is when everyone started hearing about him and wanting to see more.

Instead of wanting his son to join a known brand like Nike or Under armour, he made one of his own. His brand is called Big Baller Brand. They sell shirts, hats, pants, and shoes.

The shoes are sold for a ridiculous amount of money. The shoes are called ZO2’s and are sold for 400 dollars He thinks they should be sold at this kind of money because of how great his sons are. He is always the talk of sports because of the man he is.

One of the NBA coaches of the league called him “the Kardashian of basketball.”
