LaMelo Ball has long been touted as the best basketball player out of the Ball brothers. So far in his rookie campaign with the Charlotte Hornets, LaMelo is proving that to be true and is considered the front-runner to win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award.
So naturally, it’s about time we hear from Big Baller Brand patriarch LaVar Ball.
While LaVar has been staying silent, Saturday Night Live decided to have Keenan Thompson reprise his impersonation of LaVar on this week’s Weekend Update segment.
In the segment, “LaVar” discusses LaMelo’s early success and what is next to come.
Check it out.
LaVar Ball (Kenan Thompson) stops by Weekend Update to discuss his son LaMelo Ball’s basketball career with the Charlotte Hornets.
During his rookie campaign for the Charlotte Hornets, LaMelo is averaging 15 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 6.1 assists in 17.78 minutes per game. The youngest Ball brother is shooting 43.7 percent from the field and 35 percent from beyond the arc.
