Even if you don’t follow basketball or sports in general, you’ve probably heard of LaVar Ball.
The boisterous father of NBA rookie Lonzo Ball constantly finds himself in the news for saying ridiculous things, and it feels like he’s been in the headlines for the entire year since Lonzo played at UCLA.
Lonzo is now with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the former No. 2 overall pick used his new wealth to purchase a Rolls Royce Dawn for LaVar.
The Rolls Royce Dawn cost Lonzo $402,675, and it has 563 hp and a 6.6 L V12 engine. It goes 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and its top speed is 155 mph.
That’s a pretty baller Christmas gift from son to father, but that’s what you do when you’re a part of the Big Baller Brand. LaVar created the Big Baller Brand for his sons, and he’s hoping the shoe and apparel company will take off to rival other top shoe companies.
Ball’s younger sons are going to play basketball in Lithuania after his middle son, LiAngelo, was arrested in China for shoplifting. This led to a feud between LaVar and President Donald Trump, which is probably still ongoing.
LaVar will likely continue to stay in the news, but maybe his new Rolls Royce will consume his time for a while.
