Hate his opinions. Hate his Big Baller Brand and expensive shoes. Hate his reality show with his three teenage sons. You can hate every single thing about LaVar Ball, from his teeth to his never-ending 15 minutes, but for the next five , you should put the hate away and possibly even like the man. In the video above, Ball surprises his handyman of 15 years, Felipe, with a brand new 2017 Toyota Tundra. Here’s the story behind the purchase from the man who sold him the truck.

My man LaVar Ball has a heart of gold. He gets a lot of negative press for the brash and sometimes down right crazy things he says and does. I had the pleasure of selling him a truck that he bought for his long time handyman Felipe who’s truck went out of commission days before. He and his family were asked to come to Carmax to come see his wife Tina. To their surprise a 2017 Toyota Tundra was waiting for them and the moment was priceless. You will definitely see Lavar Ball in a different light after watching this video. Enjoy!
“It’s just something I did for him,” Ball told ESPN.com. “He’s been working a long time trying to make ends meet. That car ain’t gonna get him from place to place. Now he has a car that can get him from Point A to Point B.”
According to ESPN, Ball also gave Felipe a new job as a property manager for BBB and stated, “he will be the greatest property manger of all-time and running Staples Center in no time!” OK, I made up the last part just so his haters wouldn’t have to feel guilty by thinking LaVar might not be that bad of a guy.
