Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball bought his parents a $350,000 car for Christmas

Now, this is big baller.

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball bought his parents a Rolls-Royce for Christmas, which I’m pretty sure fulfills a Christmas wish LaVar Ball made when he and wife Tina had their first son 20 years ago.


The Rolls-Royce Dawn costs roughly $350,000, which works out to roughly three bi-weekly paychecks after taxes for Lonzo, who will make $6,286,560 this season. Not cheap, even for a No. 2 overall pick.

A few great parts to this video: 1) Someone asks Lonzo’s mom if she wants a Big Baller Brand beanie cap. She does not; 2) Someone says, “It’s so quiet,” as they leave. Unclear if they’re referring to the car or LaVar being gone; and 3) It doesn’t look like it has proper license plates, so a visit to the DMV is in LaVar’s future.

Ball missed Monday’s loss to the Timberwolves with a left shoulder strain, but it looks like he still enjoyed Christmas. And now I’m just picturing LaVar driving around asking people for Grey Poupon.
