Foot Locker has released a special Father’s Day ad and UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball is the star of the show.
The ad asks some of the top 2017 NBA Draft prospects to recall stories about their fathers and to share what their special memories are growing up with their dad, before Lonzo stands out with his humor and takes shots at himself regarding his outspoken father, LaVar, and some of the most ridiculous soundbites he’s created throughout the past few months.
Lonzo starts recalling how his father publicly called out his head coach, before taking cracks at LaVar’s comparisons to Steph Curry, the Big Baller Brand, public feuds with NBA legends and those absurd appearances on ESPN First Take.
Check it out:
I think we all just became Lonzo Ball fans.
If there’s one way to win people over, self-deprecating humor is always a good way to go — especially when your brash father has been such a storyline throughout the college basketball season and draft process. Bravo, Lonzo and Foot Locker.
