LaVar Ball Says He & LaMelo Would Kill Shaq & Shareef

"It's making a statement to the brands of what they could have had with an open mind", Ball said in a text message to ESPN's Darren Rovell. The players are the brand ambassadors.

Asked whether there is still a chance for a big shoe brand to sign his son, LaVar responded: "If the price is right". Heading into Sunday's matchup with the Brooklyn Nets, Ball led the summer league in steals and assists while leading all guards in rebounds and blocks. Ball was reportedly looking for an unprecedented $1 billion deal that would see one of the major brands partner with his own Big Baller Brand company.

While NBA Summer League dominance is rarely indicative of a successful pro career, Lonzo Ball has put up some impressive stats while switching between shoe brands in his initial games as a Laker.

Lonzo Ball wore Nike Air Jordan XXXI sneakers during Sunday's game.


Forget about his first-game dud, Lonzo Ball has been as good as advertised thus far in the Summer League.

Afterward, Lonzo Ball told ESPN that "when he wakes up" he decides which shoes to wear.

Or, he's basically saying, "You can't afford to have my son". They are priced at $495 and will begin shipping November 23. But some insiders in the shoe industry thought it was odd that Lonzo was wearing other brands so soon.

Ball's outspoken father, LaVar, who created Big Baller Brand, offered a little more insight into the thinking behind his oldest son wearing Nike, Adidas and Under Armour over the past few days. His first trial of trying a different brand was when he sported the signature shoes of Kobe Bryant. The game will take place on ESPN and Lonzo Ball says he's hopeful he will be able to play in the title game despite the minor injury suffered on Sunday evening.
