The Los Angeles Lakers play their preseason opener on Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and that means the NBA (preseason) debut for Lonzo Ball.

So, naturally, everyone at the Honda Center (Anaheim) was excited before the game for… Lonzo’s dad.

Yep, LaVar Ball is in the building, and a ridiculous amount of people lined up to have their picture taken with the Big Baller Brand CEO.

It certainly appears that LaVar’s shtick is (somehow) working.
