The Ball family is anything but your ordinary family when it comes down to business and basketball. By changing the game without an endorsement deal from top leading companies such as Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour many are in complete shock to see how successful this family has become in less than a year.
As of now, Big Baller Brand has 2 signature sneakers out, ZO2 for Los Angeles Lakers Lonzo Ball which is priced at $495 and Melo Ball 1’s for LaMelo Ball which is currently priced at $395.
LaVar Ball responded on Twitter to critiques of the shoes’ price: “If you can’t afford the ZO2’S, you’re NOT a BIG BALLER,” for which he received further media criticism.
Take into consideration all three Ball brothers playing on one team and that one team being the Los Angeles Lakers. Most see it as a LaVar Ball show and others see it as pure greatness.
The outspoken father tends to not only get bashed for his constant remarks regarding how talented his sons are but also his thoughts regarding LiAngelo’s shoplifting incident in China which resulted in LaVar sending a personal pair of Big Baller Brand sneakers to President Trump to basically shut him up.
Yet, besides all of that LaVar still has fans and professional athletes who see nothing but good in him and his family.
Per Bleacher Report, Big Baller Brand tweeted a striking photo in which had not just 1 but 3 Lakers jerseys’ with Ball written on the back.
With LiAngelo and LaMelo both headed overseas to begin their professional careers in the first division of the Lithuania League. The two brothers can gain invaluable experience playing against professionals, and they can prepare themselves for the NBA.
What is LaVar Ball’s plan?
If you sit back and analyze the “Big Baller’s” move for his boys’ everything seems to be going in the right direction. Ball knows that all eyes are on him and he’s completely correct. LaVar’s dream is to have all three of his boys play together so what better way to get them in sync then to gain even more exposure overseas which could potentially lead to an NBA draft here in the states.
Is the world ready for a Big Baller Brand take over?
