The message Lonzo Ball and Big Baller Brand are trying to send is that when you're living that Big Baller lifestyle, you can do and wear anything you want.

A day after making headlines for wearing a pair of Kobe Bryant's Nikes, Ball hit the court for Summer League action in James Harden's Adidas Harden LS sneaker. Ball wore Adidas during his freshman season at UCLA, but was reportedly turned down by the brand when his father LaVar proposed a co-branding opportunity with Big Baller Brand. James Harden, a player who wasn't turned down by Adidas, shared this post on Instagram in response to the rookie star wearing his signature sneakers.


Create for the culture.

Perhaps the bigger story should be that Ball looks pretty good in Summer League following that rough debut. Against the Cleveland Cavaliers, he finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the Lakers to a 94-83 victory and a spot in Saturday's Summer League quarterfinals.
