Earlier this week, reports surfaced about LaVar Ball making the price point of his son Lonzo's shoes $200. People dragged the Ball family about that and they're roasting the father and son even more now.
That's because that initial report was wrong and Mr. Ball is actually charging more for Lonzo's first signature shoe. A LOT MORE. Yesterday, LaVar introduced Lonzo's Big Baller Brand ZO2 Prime sneakers with a price tag of a whopping $495! The "Wet" color scheme of the kicks are available for $995 and BBB slides are going for $220 per pair.
Oh, the madness!
Within minutes of the announcement, the internet came raining down hard on LaVar and Lonzo, who is expected to be a top three selection in the NBA Draft.
One of those slamming the $495 price tag? Shaquille O'Neal.
Here's how Mr. Ball introduced Lonzo's sneakers, Shaq's reaction and all the ways Twitter and Instragram dragged the shoes to hell and back.
Yes, he's for real.
#Facts or are you letting the Ball's independent hustle rock?
Yeah, the internet is going to let the late, great Charlie Murphy laugh at this.
Whether intended or not, there is an eerie similarity here.
How Sway? Indeed!
As far-fetched as that price point is, you've got to at least appreciate Mr. Ball's independent hustle.
Oh, the laughs just keep coming in.
Kenny Smith chucked the shoes in the garbage. That's too much!
Real tears over this one.
