LaVar Ball Just Comprised His Son From Every Sneaker Deal Out
No Nike, no Adidas, and no Under Armour.
Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas are not going to sign any deals with Lonzo Ball due to his father LaVar Ball insisting that they license his own brand. LaVar told the companies that if they wanted to do any business with his son they must license his Big Baller Brand for him, and the companies were not thrilled. This is the first time ever that these major companies are stepping away from any deals with a potential top pick for the NBA draft. According to ESPN LaVar said “We’ve said from the beginning, we aren’t looking for an endorsement deal. We’re looking for co-branding, a true partner. But here not ready for that because they’re not used to that model. But hey the taxi industry wasn’t ready for Uber, either.” Lets hope that Lonzo will finally step up and speak for himself, his money, and career in the future.

I hear LA Gear is pushing hard though … If I'm Lonzo, I tell pops to stand down. https://t.co/Kxe7CWVLVr
