LaVar Ball is mighty full of himself, which makes the caricature of a man a perfect character for “SNL’s” “Weekend Update.”
On Thursday’s “Summer Edition” of the fake news program (not to be confused with a “fake-news” program), the father of Lonzo Ball boasted about his impressive attributes and abilities.
“I am 8-feet-tall, I can jump 20-feet-high,” Kenan Thompson’s LaVar Ball told host Colin Jost. “I once jumped over a Super Target. This past Thanksgiving, I ate 100 turkeys.”
He then broke out the new $495 Big Baller Brand sneakers, which are apparently “made out of South-African rhinosocerous horn.”
“They help you run faster, jump higher, and keep your willy hard as glass,” Thompson said.
Per faux-LaVar Ball, the kicks will also hand his NBA rookie son the regular season MVP Award, Finals MVP, an ESPY, a Grammy, a Purple Heart, and even Best Truck in his class from J.D. Power and Associates. Those empty guarantees led Jost to dub LaVar Ball “Black Trump.”
