THE BALL FAMILY GOES "SNEAKER SHOPPING" WITH COMPLEX (621 hits)

The controversial patriarch of the Ball family, LaVar and sons Lonzo, LiAngelo, and LaMelo go “SNEAKER SHOPPING” with host Joe La Puma at Flight Club in Los Angeles, and talk about their nearly $500 sneakers and Big Baller Brand. In the episode, top NBA prospect, Lonzo Ball opens up about how he, alone, designed the sneaker in just a few hours by drawing inspiration from several of the shoes currently on the market that he wears. Brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo weigh in on their top sneaker picks and on how loyal they intend to be to the Big Baller Brand when choosing what sneakers they wear next season. LaVar continues to fiercely defend his hotly debated statements on fans ability to be considered a true "baller" if they cannot afford to purchase the ZO2s and gives his projection on how successful he anticipates launch will ultimately become.

 

NOTABLE QUOTES:

"Did Kanye slam dunk or crossover for that shoe to come out?" – LaVar Ball on the price of Yeezys
