Lakers news: LaVar Ball gets impersonated on Saturday Night Live skit
There is no one that has made more headlines this summer across any sport more than LaVar Ball, and to make that feat even more impressive — he doesn’t actually play a sport.
Whether it was his loud, confrontational style or his cartoon-esque ability to hype his Lonzo to a No. 2 overall selection, one thing is clear — LaVar has made himself grand enough to merit the Saturday Night Live treatment.
Comedian Kenan Thompson took on the task of playing LaVar in a TV interview set, poking fun at each of the obnoxious claims he’s made since the start of the offseason.
Among them, the one that rang the most bells was his claim that he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one.
“You’re damn right,” he said. “While wearing a beekeeper suit and wearing Hamburger Helper gloves.”
“Look at me! I am eight feet tall! I can jump 20 feet high! I once jumped over a Super Target! This past Thanksgiving I ate 100 turkeys!”
If that wasn’t enough, he also put incredibly-high goals for his son Lonzo to reach, assuring he would win Rookie of the Year, NBA MVP, NBA Finals MVP, an ESPY, a Grammy, a Purple Heart and, most importantly, earn Best Truck in its class by J.D. Power and Associates, all in his first season.
