LaVar Ball was a very happy man on Thursday night after the Los Angeles Lakers selected his son, Lonzo, with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft. As he exited the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the fans in attendance booed him mercilessly.

Ball enjoyed every second of it. The outspoken father pumped his fists and then took off his Big Baller Brand hat before tossing it into the crowd, according to the LA Times's Tania Ganguli.

Watch the crowd let Ball hear their thoughts on him:

Earlier in the week, Los Angeles traded Timofey Mozgov and D'Angelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the draft.

Lonzo Ball was taken behind Markelle Fultz, who was selected with the No. 1 pick by the Philadelphia 76ers.
