LaVar Ball has been attempting to speak all of his sons onto the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster for a long time. He’s obviously a supportive father, raising and training three sons into UCLA scholarships and one (so far) into a Lakers uniform.

If more of LaVar’s predictions besides Lonzo ending up a Laker come true, it won’t be the last time he poses with title trophies.
