It’s surprising it took this long, but a LaVar Ball impersonation has finally made its way to Saturday Night Live.
On Thursday night, SNL’s Weekend Update came back on television on a special night and Kenan Thompson appeared to deliver a spot on impression of the Big Baller Brand patriarch.
With his ridiculous claims and incomparable over exaggeration, Thompson nailed the Ball impression right on the head.
“Look at me! I am 8-feet tall. I can jump 20-feet high. I once jumped over a Super Target. This past Thanksgiving I ate 100 turkeys,” Thompson quipped when asked about beating Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one.
“Ball” then went on to predict his son Lonzo would win Rookie of the Year, NBA MVP, NBA Finals MVP, a Grammy, Emmy, and most importantly, Best Truck in its Class by J.D. Power and Associates.
Well done, SNL.
