The Big Baller Brand family is, of course, big. There's LaVar, his wife, his three boys and, well, a lot of other people closely connected.

While the family has been spending a lot of time over in Lithuania so far this year, they've often made sure to take in some NBA games. LaVar's oldest son, Lonzo, is the rookie point guard for the Lakers, after all.

ESPN NBA writer Ramona Shelburne published today a deep dive on Ball and the Big Baller Brand family's impact on the Lakers. It features some interesting tidbits.

How much Lonzo Ball paid for season tickets for his family members:

"When Lonzo Ball wanted to buy 20 premier-level tickets to every Lakers home game for his extended family, a source said he was charged $150,000, the same amount as any other customer for those seats."

Magic Johnson describes his relationship with LaVar Ball

"I got a special relationship with LaVar," Johnson says. "I think he understands ... I just want the best for him. For his son. I told him, 'I've been down this road that your son is about to go down, so you got the best person sitting here. So what I need you to do is just worry about the business side. Let me take care of the basketball side.'"
