LaVar Ball gets lampooned in hilarious Saturday Night Live skit

LaVar Ball

During Thursday's "Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update, Kenan Thompson appeared as the outspoken father of Los Angeles Lakers first round draft pick Lonzo Ball, LaVar.

Yet, it is LaVar Ball rather than his son Lonzo that has attracted more headlines.

That makes Ball a flawless target for "SNL", which put Kenan Thompson to the task of impersonating him on "Weekend Update: Summer Edition" on Thursday.

Thompson, as Ball, elaborated.

Ball hasn't responded to the sketch (yet), but we're sure Lorne Michaels will be hearing from him soon.

It seems it was would be easy to imitate LaVar, but Thompson puts so much into it, that what he recited does not seem to far fetched from what LaVar would actually say. I can jump 20'0 high. "While wearing a beekeeper suit and wearing Hamburger Helper gloves".

Not gonna lie, I laughed at "Super Target".

The fake LaVar than used the opportunity to promote Big Baller Brand's Zo2 shoes, which he said is made out of a South-African rhinoceros horn. I honestly do not doubt LaVar Ball would deny eating 100 turkeys at Thanksgiving.

Per faux-LaVar Ball, the kicks will also hand his National Basketball Association rookie son the regular season MVP Award, Finals MVP, an ESPY, a Grammy, a Purple Heart, and even Best Truck in his class from J.D. Power and Associates.
