Lonzo Ball is no stranger to television. The former No. 2 overall pick of the Los Angeles Lakers always has the spotlight on him when he steps onto the court and he’s been involved in his family’s reality Facebook series Ball in the Family.
Now, Ball is set to be back on the screen with a scheduled appearance on LeBron James’ The Shop.
The star-studded lineup for the upcoming episode on Saturday, May 4 includes rapper Travis Scott, actor and comedian Seth Rogen, singer and producer Pharrell Williams, producer Jimmy Iovine, actor Don Cheadle, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Ball’s appearance on The Shop comes at an interesting time.
The oldest of the three Ball brothers is currently in a legal battle with former business partner and family friend Alan Foster, who allegedly used Lonzo’s finances for his own personal gain. Ball has also been the subject of multiple trade rumors in a season where the Lakers fell short of expectations and missed the playoffs despite the offseason addition of James.
So while it remains to be seen just how much Lonzo will open up about any of the headlines surrounding him, it will be interesting to see what he has to say about his always outspoken father, LaVar, because you know the Big Baller is going to come up in conversation.
