Lavar Ball said the Ball brothers could wear whatever brand they choose in an interview with Complex’s Joe La Puma. We’ll see Lonzo Ball wearing another brand throughout certain points of the season, depending on what mood he’s in.
Ball didn’t wear the ZO2 at his first pre-draft workout with the Lakers, either. Instead, he suited up in the Harden Vol. 1 by Adidas — a shoe he wore all season at UCLA.
The ZO2 was available for purchase then like it is now, and we saw him wearing a pair in his first promotional photoshoot of the shoe with SLAM Magazine. But he still hadn’t played in them.
But now, he’s worn them twice on the court already in Cheap Hockey Jerseys For Sale summer league Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys and Big Baller Brand has also made four new colorways available for preorder since releasing the original. The brand is growing with Ball officially becoming a Laker.
Ball wearing another brand could mean a number of things. Maybe the shoe just isn’t that comfortable on him yet. Maybe wearing the Kobe’s helped alleviate the groin issue he had earlier in the week. Maybe he really did just want to switch it up.
The Knicks have mild interest in Rose because they’re thin at the point guard position, but they aren’t going to outbid themselves. To get the best deal he can, Rose needed another suitor. Enter the Bucks.
The Bucks are at $117 million in payroll when we include Tony Snell’s new four-year, $46 million deal. That puts them way above the salary cap and pushing the luxury tax. Acquiring the former MVP would require them to make moves to shed some of that salary through trade. A sign-and-trade deal is also an option here if there is mutual interest in getting a deal done and the Knicks don’t want to lose Rose for nothing.
