The Lonzo and Lavar Ball stories continue to get better and better. From Lavar saying Lonzo will be worth more than Michael Jordan, to only wanting to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, Lonzo and his father are trying to find a shoe deal. According to Nick DePaula of Yahoo Sports, the two want to sell Ball’s potential shoe for $200.
“The brand is targeting the $200 tier for its debut Big Baller Brand basketball sneaker, an industry source told The Vertical, which would presumably be Lonzo’s signature shoe for his rookie season.”
Lonzo Ball has had talks with Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas, but none of them showed interest in the incoming rookie. One of the reasons is because Lavar Ball wants the companies to partner with him to grow Big Baller Brand, the line he started with his three sons.
After striking out on the three biggest companies, Ball is now reaching out to companies overseas. Those include the likes of Anta, Peak, and Li-Ning.
Lonzo Ball has been widely regarded as a top-three pick in the upcoming draft. With his father being as outspoken as he has been, it will be interesting to see whether Lonzo Ball gets a shoe deal with a top company in the coming months.
