New respect from me. Making the shoes Versace level is smart. And honestly, the shoes are way better than any Curry shoe that is out. They are dope. No cool, trendsetter is wearing Under Armour shoes.

The Ball's will make it. Lavar has taken the Trump approach. Most people will hate him, but with that $495 price point, you don't need to sell that many shoes. The minority that fuck with them will make them rich. I've come around.

And the youngest Ball bro will be a star. I hated on them until my buddy showed me how much flair the young one has in his game.

    What Lavar Ball fails to understand is that Lonzo is the brand, not Lavar.

    And, frankly, he's a nice player but the only personality we've seen is his father's.

    Nobody bought Nikes because of James Jordan.

    Not the same thing. With social media and today's world, Lavar has more of a role than you think.

    Everybody talks about him. This is the Kardashianization of basketball. All pub is good pub, we will beat you over the head with it. If the Ball kid's suck it won't work.

    The first shoe looks good though and the high price point makes it a status thing. It was a smart move imo, but we will see. I'm intrigued by the experiment.

    The first time John Wall locks down Lonzo, the Big Balla shoes will become the most expensive doorstops in history.

    That's irrelevant. Lonzo will be a rookie. He deserves a couple years like all players. Some bad games as a rookie won't mean the business has failed.

    How many shoes get sold before Lonzo plays a game in the NBA. That is the only thing to watch right now. The rest is LIPO stuff.

    I agree that it won't work unless one of the Ball's is a bonafied All Star, but that is at least a few years away.

    So go buy a pair with your allowance big boy. Maybe you will finally be able to dunk a ball on that 8 ft hoop in your mom's backyard.

    Lonzo won't suck. Good role players aren't selling shoes though. The youngest one can play.

    This guy Lavar is selling flip flops for $220.

    What people don't realize is that they are winning. No kids gaf about Barkley, Shaw, or any other old guy's criticism.

    Lavar is capitalizing on the sneakerheads, which are right behind 13 year old girls for the dumbest market. He's doing it right so far.

    Like the strategy except that everything is riding on the name "Big Baller". What the fuck, your kid isn't some power forward future Draymond Green badass, he's a skinny acne-ridden point guard who needs a Draymond type to dish to.

    Lavar is the brand. His kid is boring.
    If the kid's fail does Lavar? I would guess he just gets another up and comer.

    If you buy a $220 pair of flip flops that are made in China for $10, you're a bigger dumbass than a drunk Bitchfork.

    Agree, but some people will. Having the balls to charge $220 and take that risk is what I like.
