    above poster is correct that big baller brand seems very kmart ish

    I hope the kid does well but I hope he gets his ass kicked and fouled hard (non injury obvs.) when he gets to the leauge. Pros already make fun of them. Not the kids fault so im an ass hole but whatever.

    I thought there was no way this could get more ridiculous.

    Then I saw they were also selling $220 sandals.

    Sadly, I have to admit the show doesn't look that bad, which I expected it would. Also I thought the commercial was pretty good, and the ZO2 logo is pretty nice.

    Too bad he's such an f'n trainwreck this is going nowhere, especially at those prices and him trying to pass those sandals for 200+. Primarily due to his personality/actions.

    Big Baller Brand is also an incredibly stupid name.

    that faux-leather better be crafted with panda tears if you want me to pay $220 for the same thing I could get from a tj maxx pair of $5 sandals.

    I would be interested to know who made these for him and if they are actually going to be comfortable, good for your feet and last for more than a month.

    I will never know because I won't shell out 500 bones for a pair of shoes and I wouldn't line Ball's pockets even if I got them for $5.

    I'm not a Big Baller.

    I watched and wondered the whole time how they got Lonzo to do a parody video!

    The graphic inserts said things like "patent leather logo" and "handpainted." Were those serious?

    I think I'm going to buy some Guccis instead and save myself some money.

    And **** the kid to. Don't feel sorry for him one bit. He will make plenty playing basketball even if he elects to be a little boy punk slave to his dad for life. Assuming his dad does not "invest" it for him.

    Nobody's spending $500 for a pair of shoes from Kmart.

    Of course I'm not a Big Baller - I'm a Nike guy. Why would I want to spend $500 on a pair of shoes made in Vietnam when I can spend $100 on shoes from the very same factory?
