LaVar Ball has made headlines for his outrageous claims and brash attitude.
But it turns out the Big Baller Brand patriarch is actually a pretty good guy. This week, Ball surprised his longtime handyman Felipe with a brand new truck. Felipe’s current truck was having engine issues, so he was having trouble getting to and from work.
Ball led Felipe to a local car dealership before giving him the keys to a brand new 2017 Toyota Tundra.
In addition to the truck, Ball gave Felipe a new job. No longer are the days of serving as Ball’s garderner and doing work around the house, he’s now a property manager for Big Baller Brand.
It turn’s out Ball wasn’t lying when he said BBB was going to be a family affair.
You can watch the video of Felipe’s surprise below:
“It’s just something I did for him,” Ball said, via ESPN.com. “He’s been working a long time trying to make ends meet. That car ain’t gonna get him from place to place. Now he has a car that can get him from Point A to Point B.”
Amazing gesture by Ball. This is the kind of guy we can get used to seeing. Let’s just keep him away from commenting on any potential one-on-one matchups.
