Although he has yet to play a second in an official NBA regular season game, Ball and his family—composed of rowdy father LaVar and baller brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo—have become the talk of the league this off-season.

A Facebook fan page dedicated to basketball’s newest celebrity family, “Follow the Balls,” recently posted an excerpt from the second overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft—addressing the basketball-crazy Filipino fans.

“It’s crazy how global basketball is. People have been telling me that the Philippines love the Lakers, so we made a Big Baller Brand fan club called Follow the Balls for the Filipino community,” Ball wrote, much to the delight of its 10,000 followers.

“I am really excited to travel to the Philippines next summer and can’t wait to meet y’all as I travel through the States this season!” he said, adding an invitation for netizens to like the page.

Ball, meanwhile, has justified the hype that surrounded him even before joining the NBA, averaging 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 9.3 assists and 2.5 steals in the Las Vegas preseason tournament, en route to bagging the tourney’s MVP award.  /ra
