The Ball family is taking over. After oldest brother Lonzo Ball dominated headlines leading up to the NBA Draft, the youngest Ball, LaMelo, is making waves… as he celebrates his 16th birthday.
In addition to the family’s Big Baller Brand introducing his signature sneaker, the Melo Ball 1, his father LaVar copped his youngest a Lamborghini as a birthday gift.
In a profile for SLAM, the teen showcases his new shoe. By the end of the clip, he drives off in a black Lamborghini alongside Lonzo’s Mercedes G55 SUV.
Viewers thought it was a recent, but its actually the real deal.

There’s questions that LaMelo’s signature shoe — and Lamborghini — could risk his future college eligibility. LaVar, however, has told ESPN that the family isn’t worried.
Still Twitter is going off after seeing the visual, many in shock that LaMelo is driving around a Lambo at just 16.
LaMelo really has a Lamborghini tho…he's 16
