Spoken into existence by his father LaVar, Lonzo Ball is officially a Los Angeles Laker. The UCLA point guard was selected second overall in tonight's NBA Draft, fulfilling a lifelong dream.
Fully prepared for the moment, Ball not only wore a special Lakers colorway of his signature Big Baller Brand ZO2 sneaker to shake the commissioner's hand, but you can already pre-order a pair for $495 ($695 for sizes 14 and 15) at bigballerbrand.com. The limited edition "SHO'TIME" pair is white-based, with Lakers-inspired purple and gold accents. According to the website, pairs will ship by Feb. 18, 2018, around All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles.
"Inspired by an iconic era the ZO2 SHO'TIME! colorway comes just in time to start a new era of dominance on the court," the official description reads. "Lonzo Ball’s ZO2 unveiled first-of-its-kind innovations by a rising star and the ZO2 SHOTIME! takes these innovations to new heights."
