Roundup: Big Baller Brand unveils Lonzo's shoe, costs $495
Big Baller Brand released its ZO2 shoe for Lonzo Ball Thursday, going for the oh-so-cheap price of $495. If you want a pair with Lonzo’s John Hancock, that’s gonna run you another $500. Don’t have that kind of scratch? Don’t worry, you can cop the sandals for only $220. Darren Rovell has the breakdown in the link, and LaVar Ball comes through with an early Tweet of the Year candidate:
Big Baller's loose! If you can't afford the ZO2'S, you're NOT a BIG BALLER!
