LaVar Ball makes appearance in ‘NBA 2K18’ career mode (pics)
LaVar Ball is everywhere, it seems, when it comes to the NBA and the larger basketball world. Now, an … interesting feature in “Career Mode” in “NBA 2K18” allows the larger-than-life personality to be part of the game.
The official Twitter account of “NBA 2K18” on Wednesday shared as screenshot of the video-game version of Ball, well, conducting himself in the same way the real Ball tends to bloviate and over-hype himself.

A sampling of the quotes from Ball, of course delivered in his patented bombastic bravado and brash bluster.
“THIS WISDOM COMES FROM THE LIPS OF ZEUS TO YOUR MORTAL EARS.”
“A ROOKIE IN NAME ONLY. HE’S BEEN BALLING AT ALL-NBA LEVEL SINCE HE WAS A SINGLE STRAND OF DNA.”
Yep, that sounds about right … given the outspoken and outlandish reputation Ball has cultivated as son Lonzo Ball ultimately became the second overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2017 NBA Draft.
And now, Ball can boast about being the only parent of an NBA player in a video game.
