LaVar Ball’s fame and family fortune continue to rise week after week it seems.
On Wednesday, NBA 2K’s official Twitter account tweeted out a screenshot of LaVar Ball texting a player in the newest installment of MyCareer mode.

The conversation goes a little something like this:
“…Mold yourself in his image as I molded him in mine.”
“LaVar? For real???”
“IT IS I.”
“THIS WISDOM COMES FROM THE LIPS OF ZEUS TO YOUR MORTAL EARS.”
“Okay, but Lonzo is a rookie just like me.”
“A ROOKIE IN NAME ONLY. HE’S BEEN BALLING AT ALL-NBA LEVEL SINCE HE WAS A SINGLE STRAND OF DNA.”
LaVar really needs to lay off the caps lock.
2K Sports seemed to have nailed Mr. Ball’s likeness in the game as well, as it’s not that far-fetched to imagine LaVar uttering these words in real life. Whether the CEO of Big Baller Brand will feature more heavily in the later stages of the game remains to be seen, but judging from this interaction, we can only hope so.
NBA 2K18 will be released on September 19th.
