LaVar Ball reportedly shopping reality TV projects
LaVar Ball has made headlines countless times in the past several months for his outlandish remarks, but perhaps the father of UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball is simply angling for his next business venture.
According to TMZ, Ball is “actively shopping” numerous television projects around Los Angeles, with the goal being to develop a reality TV series that centers around LaVar and his three sons, who are all star basketball players. Ball has reportedly started a production company called “Big Baller Media” and is said to have “several offers” already.
Though no contracts have been signed, a reality TV show would make perfect sense for the Ball family. LaVar’s passion is obviously being in the spotlight at all times, and his oldest son Lonzo could be the top overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. His two younger sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, are star players at their high school. LaMelo, a UCLA recruit, scored 92 points in a game earlier this year.
Whether it’s beefing with Charles Barkley or making controversial remarks about LeBron James’ family, LaVar Ball loves creating a buzz. A reality show would be the perfect vehicle for him to deliver his hot takes, though it’s unclear if it would have a negative effect on his sons’ playing careers.
