Last week, LaVar Ball told TMZ Sports that he's going to send President Trump a pair of Big Baller Brand's ZO2s sneakers to "calm" the celebrity-in-chief down after their well-publicized beef.
Although the outspoken basketball dad was smiling when he said it, he wasn't playing around. After watching his son Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers fall to Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors last night in L.A., Ball followed up with the celebrity website in saying that he made good on his promise.
"I sent Trump his shoes," Ball told TMZ Sports outside the Staples Center on Wednesday night. "He should have them — unless they took 'em!"
Watch the video below.
We wouldn't be surprised if Trump tweets about this.
Perhaps Ball sent Trump the shoes to thank him for the reported $13.2 million in free advertising that his Big Baller Brand received after he and the president went back and forth, publicly exchanging words.
The Donald called LaVar an "ungrateful fool" for not thanking him over his alleged assist in getting LiAngelo Ball and his UCLA basketball teammates back home to L.A. after their shoplifting arrest in China.
