Lonzo Ball returned to Las Vegas Summer League action last night, but not in his much-ballyhooed Big Baller Brand ZO2s. No, he was wearing a purple pair of Kobe A.D. sneakers. Yes, they kind of look similar to the BBB ZO2.
Yesterday, LaVar and Lonzo Ball unveiled the ZO2—the first sneaker from the semi-eponymous Big Baller Brand. The Balls came out with their own kicks because every major sneaker company had passed on signing Lonzo Ball, who is expected to be a high first-round pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
