After striking out in trying to get a $1 billion deal with NIKE, Adidas, & Under Armour, LaVar ball is still trying to find a business partner for his Big Baller Brand merchandise and apparel and he already has a price in mind for Lonzo Ball’s signature shoe.
Via The Vertical“
“So far, Big Baller Brand has primarily sold screen-printed T-shirts, sweatshirts and embroidered hats on its web store, with prices ranging from $50-$100 per piece. The brand is targeting the $200 tier for its debut Big Baller Brand basketball sneaker, an industry source told The Vertical, which would presumably be Lonzo’s signature shoe for his rookie season. LaVar and associate Alan Foster reportedly have been developing the shoe over the past year.”
Not many players sell their signature shoe for that price, especially a player who has yet to step foot on an NBA court. Social media had some fun with this bit of information.
