While we spent some of our Christmas holidays watching and rewatching high school highlights of LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball and college highlights of big brother Lonzo, Slam Magazine actually spent Christmas day with the Ball family.
Unlike most families that just stuff their faces with food while watching sports after opening up gifts, Lavar “Daddy” Ball made his kids work out by doing pull-ups, push-ups and then getting some shots up. But after shooting some hoops and playing some Dominoes, the family, like most of us, did watch Kyrie Irving ruin the Warriors Christmas.
Here’s some bonus footage of what the Ball Bros did on the court during the holidays, including highlights of Chino Hills winning their 50th straight victory.
