Actor Kenan Thompson, an SNL regular, portrayed the outspoken Ball at the update desk, and his impersonation was spot-on.
Last week, the real Ball stated he could beat Michael Jordan with one arm tied behind his back. Thompson, as Ball, elaborated.
"You're damn right," he said. "While wearing a beekeeper suit and wearing Hamburger Helper gloves.
"Look at me! I am eight feet tall! I can jump 20 feet high! I once jumped over a Super Target! This past Thanksgiving I ate 100 turkeys!"
The faux Ball wasn't done there, as he predicted Lonzo would win Rookie of the Year, NBA MVP, NBA Finals MVP, an ESPY, a Grammy, a Purple Heart and, last but not least, earn Best Truck in its Class by J.D. Power and Associates all in his first season.
No pressure, Lonzo.
