Lonzo Ball Shoes $495

Lonzo Ball, expected to be a top 3 NBA pick, is releasing his own basketball shoe through his dad's Big Baller Brand for a mere $495 for a pair. If that's too much you can get some flip flops for only $225! Who's excited for these?! :lol: :lol:

It was only a matter of time before an AAU parent went pro.

The dad (Lavar Ball), is a philosophical genius .....

Lavar Ball:
"The people that are complaining are the ones who can't get the shoe and don't want the shoe and that's fine because there's a lot of people out here that want the shoe and can get the shoe."

In looking at the shoes I thought that they just forgot the decimal point. I also thought that 5 bucks was about right for the originality of the design, and apparent quality of those things.

Just wait a year for the market to have its say.

Soooo dang true. They'll be shipping them to South America and Africa by the truck load - giving them away - to claim the tax deduction.

Stop!
As posted above, a pair of Lonzo Big-Baller shoes cost $495 - and won't be delivered till Nov. :lol:
But for an a Lonzo autograph you pay and EXTRA $500. A Lonzo Ball-autographed pair of the shoes is being sold for $995. Suhweeeet!

Remember, that's $500 for an autograph from a guy that has not yet played 1 minute of NBA basketball. Perfect.
