TEARS OF JOY EMOJI: LaVar Ball Definitely Bricked This Shot & Pretended It Went In

TEARS OF JOY EMOJI: LaVar Ball Definitely Bricked This Shot & Pretended It Went In
  • Tanya Ray Fox

It’s happened guys. LaVar Ball has finally done it. He’s finally hit peak LaVar Ball. He’s maxed out. We knew this day would come, but for me, it’s even better than I could’ve hoped.

A week ago, Ice Cube issued a challenge to LaVar via Instagram: hit a four-point shot, like the one that will be featured in his Big 3 basketball league, and Cube would buy 10 pairs of Big Baller Brand sneakers. The challenge was accompanied by a video that clearly showed Cube hitting the four-point shot on a dramatically basketball court.

Cut to a week later, and LaVar has finally decided to respond to the challenge. Apparently he’s been busy? Anyway, prepare yourselves because this is cringeworthy:


The majority of Twitter might be lunatics, but they aren’t idiots. That shot did not go in. Not only did we not see it go in, which is insane given the nature of the challenge, but we heard it bounce. I was a kid with a driveway and a hoop once. I know what a goddamned brick sounds like, LaVar.

Also, that’s not a four-point shot, you big dummy. I’m not even sure that’s a free throw, to be honest.

Everything that happened in this video was just pure and utter tomfoolery. I’ve never witnessed a person with less self awareness. It’s remarkable. It’s damn near admirable.
