    I read a story/theory once that said LaVar's biggest mistake was bringing MJ and LeBron into his clown show. LaVar compared his kids to LeBron's kids and LeBron took major offense to it. Shortly after all LeBron has to do is call up Nike and say, "Don't sponsor any Ball boys" and you know Nike will be like "Yes sir."

    Maybe he can get a deal with Reebok, or something.

    I'm hearing that Jordache is looking to get back into sportswear. All joking aside, I feel bad for Lonzo.

    If his brothers don't make it to the NBA, he will leave BBB and sign with Under Armour or Nike by year 5 in the NBA. Hopefully, for him, that isn't past his most marketable time.

    Lonzo looks so annoyed in the first gif. Feel bad for the kid. It's hilarious for the dad though

    It's impressive that one 5 second gif could capture the whole Ball family dynamic so well.

    LaVar Ball is an idiot. And now he's going to be in a bunch of headlines and interviews again....
    Does Reebok still make basketball shoes?

    pretty sure they pivoted to the training/running shoe market in the past five years or so

    Mainly retros. I believe Adidas owns Reebok unless they've sold them in the last year.
