Rashad McCants to wear the ZO2s during BIG3 play

The number one overall pick in the BIG3 Draft is supporting the Big Baller Brand. Rashad McCants plans on wearing the ZO2s during BIG3 play. “I plan to wear those shoes (ZO2) during the BIG3 league. I support the brand a hundred percent, everything that he’s doing,” McCants told Paul Gant.  

“I’m not going to say I agree with everything he’s saying, but I know why he’s saying it. He has to get the world’s attention, and he has done just that. His son has done everything he’s needed to do as far as coming out and showing his skill, and his ability. Everything is right on track for them. They just need the support of their own people, to be honest. They just need the support, and everybody stop, you know, Stephen A. (Smith) and Shannon Sharpe, and all these guys talking crazy about what they like and don’t like about this guy,” said McCants. He’s a family man. He’s trying to make a brand for his family, and pave a way for his family. There’s roadblocks that you’re going to have to cross over to do that, and that’s pissing a lot of people off in the process. So, I’m with him because I piss people off on a regular basis. I know what that process is like.”

McCants tells why he believes African-Americans should support LaVar Ball:

You got Gucci, you got Louis (Vutton), you got Nike, you got LeBron, you got Kobe, you got Jordan, you got basketball jerseys, you got socks. When you go out for Christmas, and they buying stuff for their kids, it’s going to come out to four to five hundred dollars, maybe a thousand. People feel as if it’s too much. it’s too expensive, but everything we spend goes to other brands, goes to other cultures. So, why not spend with your own people? Why not support? Because ultimately, he is going to create a NIKE Jumpman brand, where the prices will go lower, and he will be able to expand, be able to marginalize, and be able to really take advantage of this type of market. I think that’s what people are lacking, that he’s a smart man, and he knows what he’s doing.  

McCants feels if African-Americans are going to spend above their means, they should spend it with LaVar Ball:

“That seems to be a habit of what we(African-Americans) do. We spend above our means for the sake of perception. So, if we’re going to do that, if we’re going to continue to do it, why not do it with our people?”

You agree with McCants?

The BIG3 starts June 25 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. 

Rapper “The Game” supporting Big Baller Brand

More support for the Ball family today. Rapper “The Game” purchased almost $2000 worth of Big Baller Brand apparel today. He explains why on Instagram. The rapper plans to buy more stuff from BBB.

Here is what he said:

Just bought my son @hvrlemtaylor & a few of his friends the “Lonzo @zo Ball’s” #Z02 kicks just on the pure fact that I’ve spent over a million dollars, sh__ probably more on Nike’s, Jordan’s & other big name sneaker brands in my lifetime so why not support a family brand & a rising stars shoe….. Funny how ni__ will go & buy Gucci flip flops for $300-400 with no complaints but then complain & bitch when a kid & his family is making a name for themselves & trying to grow their own brand….. I also think about all these $500 duplicate Jordans n___ out here going broke & dying over just trying to keep up with Jones’s…. While MJ, as much as I love & support him & his legacy ain’t really ever did much for the black community other then tax our mothaf____ a__ for the same shoes over & over as well as charge these kids parents hella money to get in these camps. & again, no hate… MJ is MJ but today I chose to support @Zo & his family…. f__ how anybody feel about it… keep making memes if that’s all yo broke hatin a__ can do….. maybe sometimes, people need to delete the meme app off they phone & start creating their own legacy instead of picking apart someone else’s….. I will also be buying 10 more pair of @Zo‘s kicks for 10 kids who’s parents can’t afford them….. on behalf of myself & @therobinhoodproject #DatWay#TheRobinHoodProject #BigBallerBrand#itAintTrickinIfYouGotIt

Sources: LaVar Ball looking to sell $200 sneakers

LaVar Ball is looking to build an empire. At this point, he has not been able to lock up a partnership with any of the big sneaker companies. Well, maybe he will go a different route. According to The Vertical, LaVar Ball is looking to sell his “Big Baller Brand” sneakers for around 200 dollars, which according to The Vertical, would be Lonzo Ball’s signature sneaker

Is Lonzo Ball that popular? 

I wonder how many shoes they can sell at that price point?  Is LaVar on to something, or delusional?  

Also, according to The Vertical, Ball’s representatives have also reached out to Chinese-based companies.

We shall see how this all goes!
