Skechers makes good running shoes.
Tough for Lonzo, seems like a decent guy from what I can recall. Unfortunately has a major tool bag for a dad (at least from a career/business perspective). Worse is I think the younger brother (LaMelo? Melo?) takes after his dad quite a bit.
Yeah, as Lonzo, he had the best chance to be great. He didn't have it given to him, he just had a dad that probably pushed him harder than anyone ever would have. Then since he has became the national name he has, LaVar has gotten more talkative, and LaMelo sees his brother and dad all over sports sites, and he's scoring 60+ a game and the people in his school are probably in awe of their family, that self entitlement seems more natural for Lamelo. I get the feeling LiAngelo doesn't even like basketball, he is just doing it because his dad wants him to and he can..
Do they still make Pro Keds?
I get all the "laughing" gifs, but this actually makes me kind of sad. I think the kid is, by most accounts, an alright kid. He probably would have had some endorsement potential if it wasn't for his idiot of a dad.
I'm not so sure Lonzo is all that great a kid, actually. Some of the clips I've seen of him sure make him look arrogant. Of course that's de rigueur these days. The younger Ball will have a rude awakening once he gets to the next level, at least he will if he has a real coach. He won't be able to cherry pick and get 40 lay-ups per game like he does now.
Lonzo is easily the most talented of the three.
Is Kangaroos still in business?
If Lonzo does well as a pro the endorsements will come. One would think that dad will continue to pressure Lonzo hard to perform once he gets to the NBA. A bigger question...which NBA team wants the "family package" that comes with Lonzo?
OK, this is just because I love this GIF:
That's what makes it funny/sad. The kid would be just fine if his dad would just shut the hell up. The expectations and hate Lavar has piled on Lonzo and the other 2 is unfortunate but there's no escaping it now. Lavar was looking crazy like a fox a few months ago when he was getting his kids all the extra run, but now he just looks like a dumbass.
Were there "too many white guys" in the meetings with the shoe companies?
I can't stand Lonzo's old man.
Daddy Ball already had shoe designs for Lonzo's first shoe. I think this must be one of the designs...
The rich UCLA alumni will get tired of buying the BBB shirts for $100/ each.
I doubt that Lonzo gets drafted by the Lakers. Magic does not want someone (the father) to "over-shadow" the team he is trying to build.
The fact that the Lakers will most likely be there to take him, and still might not, is gonna be a great storyline leading up to the draft. If the Lakers pass on Lonzo, I'm gonna need a camera on LaVar's face asap
If that does happen and Lonzo drops in the draft how long before LaVar is quoted as saying there are too many white guys in the front offices?
Idk if he'll go that far, but he will certainly call out whatever white player goes before his son. Craziest thing about that whole story is The Ball Brothers are all half-white.
