Lonzo Ball Says His Shoe Choices Are Fuel for Bidding War

Los Angeles Lakers Four reasons drafting Lonzo Ball was right move

Communicating with ESPN's Darren Rovell on Saturday night, Ball said that Lonzo wearing shoes from all three companies was sending a message.

LaVar Ball also said he's still open to Lonzo signing a shoe deal with a more established brand. His father LaVar has worked tirelessly at promoting the Big Baller Brand, which Lonzo wore early on.

Speaking after rocking Jordan 31s following his Summer League semifinal victory against Dallas, Ball admitted as much. For previous games, the teen had worn Nike Kobe ADs, as well as James Harden and Stephen Curry's signature styles, made by Adidas and Under Armour, respectively.


If the $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2 shoes make another appearance on Lonzo Ball's feet in the NBA Summer League, it won't be until Monday's championship game. ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth asked Ball before Sunday's game.

Or, he's basically saying, "You can't afford to have my son". They are priced at $495 and will begin shipping November 23. But some insiders in the shoe industry thought it was unusual that Lonzo was wearing other brands so soon.

If LaVar does indeed stick with the billion-dollar asking price, it's incredibly unlikely that Lonzo will ever land with Adidas, Nike, or Under Armour. The shoe brands quickly passed. Playing on the Lakers, plus the power of his holdout, could boost that to over $2 million per year.
