LaVar Ball on WWE Raw

It takes a lot to stand next to WWE wrestlers and have people think you’re the crazy one. But LaVar Ball made it look easy.

Here’s the worst sports dad ever making his way to the ring during Monday Night Raw at the Staples Center looking like Kermit The Frog doing some variation of the poop walk:

He then introduced his son Lonzo Ball, who the Lakers drafted with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft last week:

And then the shirt came off:

Not to be overshadowed by his father and brother, LaVar’s youngest son, LaMelo, said something you usually don’t hear on live television.

Update: WWE has since apologized for LaMelo’s comment, as per Houston Mitchell of The Los Angeles Times:

WWE responded to what happened with the following: “The inappropriate language used by a guest during the ‘Miz TV’ segment was not scripted nor reflects WWE’s values.”

This seems like a pretty good counterpoint to those who said LaVar would start to recede once Lonzo became a Laker. This guy will going to gobble up every opportunity for exposure, and honestly I don’t blame him.

We’ll see how many times De’Aaron Fox has to defeat Lonzo to actually shut this man up.
