After Lonzo Ball Ditched Big Baller Shoes for Nikes, LaVar Swears He’s Not Jumping Ship
Ben Simmons Responds Back To LaVar Ball By Throwing Shots At His Big Baller Brand
Let’s get you up to speed on this beef.
On draft night, Philadelphia 76ers’ forward Ben Simmons took to Twitter and posted this after LaVar stated that the Los Angeles Lakers would make the playoffs next season—after drafting his son, Lonzo Ball.

LaVar responded by telling Simmons and Joel Embiid to get off Twitter and into the gym.
”When you don’t win and don’t even make the playoffs, and don’t even stay on the court long enough, that’s the best thing you can do is tweet, make some stuff. Ain’t nobody else doing that, because they’re working on their game in the gym.
“These guys ain’t played a game, always hurt, and at the bottom of the totem pole. So guess what, get your asses off the goddamn Tweeter, and get in the gym.
“Add their games up and see how they turn the program around. LSU wasn’t turned around, they’re great players. They’re good, they made it to the NBA, they’re good kids that can play, it’s just sometimes, these people get to twist their words and make it seems like they’re doing something. Don’t complain and talk about stuff, go ahead and do something.
“Don’t worry about the stuff that’s going on, these guys got to get healthy and at least get on the court first. Both of ’em played in college and didn’t uplift their team. I ain’t got nothing against Fultz, that boy can play, but if you really that good, your team got to go at least .500 if you got a bunch of blind midgets.”
On Wednesday night, Lonzo Ball had a dominating summer league performance against the 76ers, as he dropped 36 points, 11 assists, 8 rebunds, and 5 steals, all while ditching his ZO2′s for some Nike Kobes.
Everybody noticed the change, including Ben Simmons, who took to Instagram and took a massive shot at Big Baller Brand.
