Hey Lakers fans! The 2017 NBA Draft
is over, but Lonzo Ball
is ready to, well, ball, and he's celebrating by offering his Big Baller Brand shoes in the Lakers colors.
He premiered the shoes last night.
The shoes were a big hit especially since he didn't have a plan 'B'.
I had them on after Markelle [Fultz] got picked," Lonzo said. "I had a good feeling I was going to be staying home. I'm glad that they picked me because I didn't have any other shoes under the table."
Of course his father, Lavar ,touted that big things were to come:
Lonzo's signature ZO2 shoes were being offered for sale in Lakers colors on the company's website. The price was $495, the same as the first version of the shoes, with the promise of shipping pairs to customers by Feb. 10.
"Big Baller Brand, we about to launch it off now," said LaVar Ball, when stopped while walking through a hallway at Barclays Center in New York. "We are about to do some things."
The question is whether fans will buy the $495 shoes or if their kind of 'over it'.
What do you think? Will you buy the shoes?
