People can’t get enough of Lonzo Ball — he packed the building at Summer League, and not just with drooling Lakers fans.
People also can’t seem to get enough of LaVar Ball and his over-the-top self/family promotion.
Sounds like a reality show to me — and it did to the people behind Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Born This Way. That is why there is “Ball in the family, which will debut the first two episodes on the new Facebook Watch platform on August 31, with a new episode every Sunday starting Sept. 10.
“We wanted to give our fans an unfiltered look into our lives and show them a side of us that isn’t typically seen,” said LaVar Ball. “We have a big community of fans on Facebook, so we’re excited our series is going to be on Watch. And who better to help us tell our story than Bunim/Murray Productions.”
You can check out more at the Ball in the Family Show Page, where you can also add it to your watch list.
Lonzo has said before that the public persona of his father is different from the guy he grew up with and is around the house every day. I hope so (I wouldn’t be watching a weekly show of just LaVar hyping himself), and this trailer gives me hope. Helping his wife Tina overcome a stroke, how LaVar handles his other children as they try to get where Lonzo is at, that could be real and real interesting.
Watch it for yourself and decide.
