Snoop Dogg delivers brilliant one-liner to roast LaVar Ball (vid)

Snoop Dogg absolutely roasted LaVar Ball over how he put is son, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, “in the lion’s den.” The elder Ball is renowned for his trademark bombastic bravado and has used it to constantly pumped up Lonzo’s basketball pedigree, putting his son square in the cross-hairs in his first NBA season. At least that’s how Snoop Dogg, among many others, sees it.

Snoop delivered an absolutely brilliant one-liner to burn the elder Ball during an appearance on Kevin Garnett’s “Area 21” show.

“I think his father put him in the lion’s den with some pork-chop drawers on,” Snoop quipped.

Boom. Roasted.

Ball had himself an inauspicious NBA regular-season debut Thursday night, scoring only three points on 1-for-6 shooting in 29 minutes in the Lakers’ 108-92 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Ball’s underwhelming play inspired Clippers guard Patrick Beverly to mercilessly troll the rookie, saying after the game, “Weak a– m—–f—–. Bring him out on the court with me and I will tear his a– up.”

This of course inspired a retort from LaVar Ball, who said of Beverley in part, “Yeah, you shut him down. OK … Who is Patrick Beverley? He played all last year and nobody said nothing about him.”

With all that in mind, expect the elder Ball to have words about Snoop Dogg’s witty repartee sooner rather than later. It goes without saying LaVar Ball simply cannot help himself when it comes to reacting to slights against himself or his family.
