    Lonzo's dad open to shoe deal if 'price is right'

    LaVar Ball admits his son's wearing of different shoes serves as both a temptation and an invitation to the brands that passed on him.

    "It's making a statement to the brands of what they could have had with an open mind," the patriarch said via text message. "The players are the brand ambassadors. The brand is nothing without the players."


    Asked whether there's still a chance that a big shoe brand can sign his son Lonzo Ball, LaVar responded: "If the price is right. Quite frankly we are officially in the shoe game, and are a billion dollar brand either way."

    The Los Angeles Lakers' first round pick has played four games in the NBA's summer league. In the first two games, he wore his own Big Baller Brand signature shoe. For the third game he wore Nike, and for the fourth Adidas. Ball told ESPN before Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets he'd wear Stephen Curry's Under Armour shoes.

    Ball has garnered more attention in the last two games, not only for his surprising choice of shoes -- steering away from the Big Baller Brand upstart that has sold its shoes, priced at $495, online and will ship on Nov. 23 -- but also because of how well he's played.

    Both LaVar and Lonzo said wearing different shoe brands has to do with the independence Lonzo has to switch things up. But some insiders in the shoe industry thought it was strange that Lonzo was wearing other brands so soon.

    In negotiations with the big brands -- Nike, Adidas and Under Armour -- LaVar made it known that he was looking for $1 billion and wanted those brands to sublicense his Big Baller Brand. The shoe brands quickly passed. Days later, the first Big Baller Brand shoes launched on the company website.

    Industry sources said the traditional companies have offered Ball deals in the range of $1.5 million per year. Playing on the Lakers, plus the power of his holdout, could boost that up over $2 million a year.

    That's a long way from a billion.

    Through his first four games, Ball is averaging 17 points and a summer league-leading 9.8 assists per game.

    He's right about Embiid. When you can't speak English and your vocabulary is very limited, you ought to be the last person being all over social media looking like a clown.

    Embiid makes Africans look bad. The guy is annoying asf.

    I think the end goal is too partner with one of the companies but also have them accept BBB so they can sell the shirts/etc which would be for the best.

    Embiid is like 0-3 against Lavar now.

    First L = Saying fukk Lavar while looking like he wanted to cry.

    Second L = Lavar calling him dumb and saying he stays injured

    third L = Lavar saying he can say fukk you to Embiid more times than Embiid can say it to him cause Lavar doesn't have a boss :dame:

    Embiid was fined by the NBA... not adidas or Nike or whoever signed him.

    Somebody was right calling Lavar the Donald Trump of sneakers... he can say anything, make up stuff and y'all will spin it into Ws and 4 dimesional chess... crazy thing is y'all grown azz n1ggas

    And now Dudes are c00ns for responding to a 50 year old man, not even ex NBA player critisizing them publicly... bizzaro land around here :francis:

    Bird Brain Brehs spun not getting a million dollar shoe deal as a win 'cause Lonzo & Lavar wouldn't have a boss until his son got drafted by a pro team where he has a boss and the bosses of the Lakers basically told Lavar to stay the hell away from his own son. :dame: No mention of that from the Bullshyt Boasting Bustas tho

    They also spun him not wearing his own shoes in summer league as a win cause of "flexibility" b/c BBB "do what they wanna" but when you combine the lack of BBB shoe sales and the probable lack of quality of the Zo2's are you surprised they'd pull such an amateur stunt to get attention? shyt is like some high school shyt where a kid wears the hats of different schools before finally deciding which school he's gonna go to.

    But it's Triple B breh, it makes sense when it wants to :mjgrin:
