LaVar Ball Says You’re Not a Big Baller If You Can’t Afford $495 Shoes (TWEETS)
Earlier today, Big Baller Brand unveiled Lonzo Ball’s 1st Signature Shoe, The ZO2 Prime, and they were retailed at $495. Social media lost their collective minds over that price—for a pair of shoes from a yet-to-be-drafted player.
LaVar Ball, the ‘brains’ behind this operation and the price, took to Twitter later on Thursday and made things even worse by stating people who can’t afford to spend big money on his son’s signature shoes aren’t big ballers.
Big Baller’s loose! If you can’t afford the ZO2’S, you’re NOT a BIG BALLER!
