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.
However, with Lonzo Ball set to be officially introduced as the Lakers’ No. 2 pick Friday, LaVar finally got the REAL moment everyone knows he’s been waiting for — posing with Magic Johnson in front of the Lakers’ championship trophies:

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.
Despite all of his braggadocio turning some off to the Biggest Baller, it’s clear LaVar is a family man at heart, which was on display with a HUGE Ball section for Lonzo’s introductory presser:

Congrats, LaVar. You spoke it into existence.
