The Ball Brothers reached a star status even before they made it to the NBA. Thanks to their father, LaVar Ball, these young men were noticed by fans.
After Lonzo entered the association with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017 and LaMelo did the same last year, they have gotten to the next level. Even with the Lopez, Antetokounmpo, and Holiday, the Ball Brothers are the most famous in the league.
They have taken their status to the next level after appearing on a Marvel Studios' movie trailer. "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" premiered this month, bringing a new hero to the big screen.
In this new trailer, Lonzo, LaMelo, and LiAngelo appear talking about their relationship with their father (which looks like a critical piece of the movie's plot). While speaking in a support group meeting, Zo explains how difficult things have been for him thanks to his father, while Melo and Gelo agree with him.
Lonzo: "No matter what I do, it's not good enough for my father. He's constantly pushing me, controlling me. Am I wrong?"
Melo: "Yeah, I feel you."
Gelo: "It's like you're reading my mind."
The main character realizes they are brothers and asks them if they aren't talking about the same person.
"Wait, don't you guys have the same dad?" Shang-Chi asked with a shocked face.
After that, he explains his complex relationship with his father, who happens to be a villain in the movie.
This was a short but hilarious participation from these boys. They have come a long way and now are big stars around the NBA world.
Lonzo is getting ready to start a new chapter in his career with the Chicago Bulls. LaMelo will play his second season with the Charlotte Hornets, trying to lead them to the playoff, while LiAngelo is hoping to get a chance in Buzz City after recording solid performances in the summer league.
Meanwhile, they have time to make these appearances on blockbuster productions. Even though they made fun of LaVar, the Ball family's patriarch must be happy that his sons have gone so far.
