LaVar Ball's company unveils son Lonzo Ball's $495 shoes

Posted May 06, 2017

We all knew LaVar Ball's expectations for his eldest son were high in his first rookie season.

Now the NBA-bound point guard has a more expensive shoe than pro basketball players like LeBron James and Stephen Curry, according to Fox Sports. "If you can't afford the ZO2'S, you're NOT a BIG BALLER!"

The decision to release the shoes independently, as their own brand, came after Nike, Under Armour and Adidas declined to pursue deals with Ball when he made clear that they would be seeking a licensing deal for Big Baller Brand and would be providing the prototype for Lonzo's first shoe.

Prior to Game 2 of the Warriors' Western Conference semifinals series with the Utah Jazz on Thursday night, Brown was asked by a reporter if he would ever buy his kids a pair of $500 sneakers from an unproven NBA prospect before he even played a game in the association.

ICICI Bank Q4 net up at Rs 2025 cr
Net Interest Income stood at Rs 5,962.2 crore, which grew by 10.31% year-on-year (YoY) and 11.16% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ). However, by the end of the Q4 of FY17, the bank had exhausted its entire contingency reserves for provision for bad loans.

In an interview with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne earlier this week, Lonzo Ball said he believed his shoe would sell and that he loved the fact that he was so involved in the making of his sneakers.

The Big Baller Brand ZO2 Prime will retail for a staggering $495 Dollars. However, Ball has a way of getting under people's skin.

"The people that are complaining are the ones who can't get the shoe and don't want the shoe, and that's fine because there's a lot of people out here that want the shoe and can get the shoe".

The shoe is billed as available for pre-order on the BBB website but won't actually be shipped until November 24.
