NBA.com staff reports
Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball is known by many for his passing skills, point guard acumen and the overall ability he brings as the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Aside from his playing ability, though, he is known to others because of the boisterous (and at times, controversial) personality his father, LaVar, brings in interviews during his son's rise to fame.
Those looking for more on LaVar Ball, his sons and his family can get their fix soon. According to the Sports Business Journal, LaVar Ball will be the focus of a new reality show on Facebook called "Ball In The Family", which will debut on Aug. 31 (Sept. 1, PHL time).
LaVar Ball now has his own reality show with Bunim/Murray Productions to produce “Ball In The Family,” a weekly series that will be part of Facebook’s Watch platform. The show’s first two episodes premiere tomorrow, and new episodes will be released every Sunday starting Sept. 10.
Bunim/Murray is the same production company behind E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and MTV’s “The Real World.”
