LaVar Ball Hams It Up on ‘WWE RAW’

Four days after UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers, he and his family — especially his loquacious, boisterous father LaVar Ball — were guests on the June 26 edition of USA Network’s “WWE Raw” that took place in the Lakers’ home arena, Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.

Villanous wrestler The Miz showed his guests he was the boss, which prompted LaVar to take his own shirt off, perform karate gestures and to run around the ring for some apparent reason.

For the past several months, LaVar Ball, a former football tight end, has offered much hype and self-praise about his sons Lonzo, LaMelo and LiAngelo and their alleged extraordinary abilities as basketball players.
