Love him or hate him — and most people seem to choose the latter — LaVar Ball sure is entertaining. Just ask the crowd at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for the 2017 NBA Draft.

Thursday undoubtedly was a special night for Ball, as he saw his son, Lonzo, drafted No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers. And he wasted no time making bold predictions afterward, although two Philadelphia 76ers players weren’t too thrilled with his comments.

But the fun was just getting started. When LaVar Ball went to leave the main floor at Barclays, he received hearty boos from the fans in attendance. And in typical LaVar Ball fashion, he thrived in the moment — and then threw his Big Baller Brand hat into the stands.

The sports world has its next great villain, and he’s a natural.
