As if LiAngelo Ball needed anything else to be the “big man on campus,” the 18-year old Big Baller Brand wearing UCLA baller, who LaVar calls “the sexy one,” will be riding through campus and picking up girls in a white Ferrari. You read that right.
Speaking of real Big Ballers, I can’t talk about Ferraris and Big Ballers without bringing up this awesome Chris Webber story about Ferrari collector and the biggest baller of big ballers, Michael Jordan.
“One time we played in Washington. We played a five game series against the Bulls. It was the year they won 72 games. We lose all three games by a total of seven points. I saw Michael Jordan come into our locker room with a cigar, while it was lit, and said, ‘Who’s going to check me tonight?’ And we looked at Calbert Cheaney and we were laughing like little school kids knowing that Calbert Cheaney was going to get him, we knew it wasn’t a game for Mike. He was going to be there and he was going to be playing like he said. Game Three we get off the bus and Juwan (Howard) is from Chicago and used to workout there. I’ll never forget, Jordan was sitting on his Ferrari and Pippen was right there and they have a cigar lit. We get off the bus and we have to pass them with a lit cigar. You want to talk about posturing? Forget Phil Jackson. You got Michael Jordan there behind the scenes smoking a cigar before the game, letting us know that he’s the Red Auerbach before the game even started. It was almost like, ‘I lit the cigar. I’m celebrating already. This is just a formality, you guys getting on the court tonight.”
I can just visualize a visiting team shaking their heads at the sight of Ball, Kris Wilkes and Jaylen Hands standing in front of the white Ferrari, with cigars and BBB gear.
