LaVar Ball and family to star in reality TV series on Facebook

LaVar Ball and family to star in reality TV series on Facebook

During LaVar's interview with 97.5 The Fanatic, Ball voiced his concerns about Sixers leadership in Bryan and Jerry Colangelo.

We're sure this will cause a reaction from the Ball family.

Outspoken basketball dad Lavar Ball and his family will soon be starring in their own reality show.

The series has yet to be titled and we don't have the number of episodes that will be produced. "If you don't, fine", Ball said of the then-unannounced reality show in March.

After being drafted No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, his father, LaVar Ball, predicted they would make the playoffs next season. "But I think it's a hell of a story, the fact that you have to watch and see if my boy's gonna be as successful as I'm talking about".

One source close to LaVar tells us the projects are both part of the "Big Baller Media" brand - LaVar's production company.

If confirmed, the Ball family web series would mark the latest instance of Facebook's push into original and live video content. The new series demonstrate the type of content that Facebook believes would do well on such platforms.

"Our goal is to make Facebook a place where people can come together around video".

He continued, "We're focused on episodic shows and helping all our partners understand what works across different verticals and topics".

Last week, Facebook announced a deal through Fox Sports to stream a handful of UEFA Champions League games for the 2017-18 season.
