Ball, played by SNL regular Kenan Thompson, stopped by the “Weekend Update” with a preview of his sweet new shoe.

After talking up his son LaMelo Ball — and insisting the Charlotte Hornets point guard has the NBA’s Rookie of the Year and MVP titles “locked up” — Thompson unveiled the shoe.

“Presenting the Caramelos!” he said. “Weekend Update” co-host Michael Che appeared confused and asked, “Is that a chocolate shoe?”

“Yes indeed!” Thompson responded. Both Thompson and Che broke character and started laughing at the ridiculous idea.

“That’s not all,” Thompson said once he regained his composure. “Every pair of Caramelos comes with real caramel inside.”

He then pulled a cookie dipped in caramel from the giant shoe. “Pick yourself up a pair — $2,000 dollars, seven month wait list. Available exclusively on my cell phone, between the hours of 3 and 6 p.m. Mountain Time!”
