LaVar Ball never ceases to amaze us.
After Nike, Adidas and Under Armour passed on the chance of making his son Lonzo Ball an endorsement offer last week, reports surfaced about Mr. Ball aiming to set Lonzo's debut sneakers with the family's Big Baller Brand at a price point of $200.
Wait ... what!?
To put that into perspective, Nike sells a pair of LeBron James's kicks for $220. But that's King James, who is battle-tested tried and true with three NBA titles, three Finals' MVPs, four league MVPs and 13 All-Star Game appearances to his name. Not Lonzo Ball, who is projected to be a top three pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but is otherwise unproven, making LaVar's $200 tag that much more zany.
That being said, people have been dragging Mr. Ball to hell and back for his outlandish price point. Check out some of the savage slander.
Real tears over this one.
You absolutely did this to yourself, Mr. Ball.
Daring price point to say the least.
Yes, it's best to Moonwalk out the boardroom at this point.
The 1st Ls — a LaVar Ball-Payless collabo? No chill whatsoever.
Anybody got their $200 out in anticipation for these joints?
Another reason why the internet remains undefeated: Shark Tank investors laughing off LaVar's Big Baller Brand pitch. Damn ... life hits you fast sometimes.
