Lonzo Ball is the talk of the town in Las Vegas this week. The newly minted Los Angeles Lakers point guard began the Summer League posting five points on 2-of-15 shooting (1-of-11 from downtown) and five assists against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers would lose 96-93 while wearing his signature Big Baller Brand ZO2 shoes that are retailed at $495.
Ball would right the ship on Tuesday against the Philadelphia 76ers by notching 36 points in a win against the Philadelphia 76ers. The face of the Big Baller Brand also turned heads when he donned a purple pair of Kobe Bryant’s Kobe AD sneakers.
“At BBB, you can play in what you want,” Lonzo Ball told ESPN’s SportsCenter after the win. “I already played in both of my shoes, might as well get the ‘Mamba Mentality’ going. Put ’em on, and it worked out tonight.”

Last night,, Ball tried on another pair of shoes: James Harden’s Adidas Harden Vol. 1 LS kicks.
Ball, the Lakers’ rookie and number 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft messed around and got a triple double in the three stripe kicks. He posted 16 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds in the Lakers’ 94-83 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA’s Summer League.
Lonzo’s dad, LaVar told ESPN.com’ Darren Rovell:
“Lonzo is not forced to wear any brand and can play in any shoe he wants as long as it’s OK with the NBA. This is what being independent is all about.”
