In an interview with TMZ Sports, Barkley was asked about a few things regarding Big Baller Brand, and the Ball family. After being asked if the Lakers are a playoff team, to which he gave a quick response of, "Hell no," Barkley was asked if he had any advice for Lonzo regarding his sneaker deal. "Sign with Nike," he said. "They're not going to lowball him."
Lonzo's sneaker deal has remained a big topic thanks to him playing in various brands throughout his Summer League games earlier this month. Only time will tell if he stays true to Big Baller Brand, or if his potential success will allow him to score a high-dollar contract with a brand like Nike, Adidas, or Under Armour, but it will certainly be an interesting rookie year for the Los Angeles Lakers' guard.
In case you were wondering, Barkley also gave his thoughts on if he could beat LaVar in a game of 1-on-1 with a rather confident response. "Everybody can."
