Well played, Lonzo.
In a stroke of PR brilliance, clever advertising and deadpan humor, Lonzo Ball stole the show in a new Foot Locker Father’s Day spot that knowingly uses
the internet’s his large adult father LaVar Ball as a punch line.
Jayson Tatum, Jonathan Isaac and De’Aaron Fox also star in the ad, but Ball delivers the punch lines, for obvious reasons. Watch below.
This was honestly the best thing the Balls could have done to let us all known that they, too, are in on the joke. At least...a little bit. I feel a little better knowing that Lonzo isn’t being oppressed by LaVar and forced to deliver boring line after boring line when not shooting jumper after jumper in a dark gym somewhere in Los Angeles.
Or...maybe that’s just what they want us to think.
