LaVar Ball is back in the news. This time, the founder of Big Baller Brand is addressing the Philadelphia 76ers' rookie point guard Markelle Fultz. Before signing his Nike endorsement deal in June, Fultz expressed potential interest in wearing Big Baller Brand by telling the Washington Post, "I was thinking about it, but then I would make [LaVar Ball] money, though."
During a recent appearance on ESPN Radio Los Angeles, Ball made his stance known on the possibility of Fultz joining the BBB fraternity. "Yeah, it’s good for him. I’m not going to sign him to no contract, man. He got to go to the brand and get it like everybody else online."
Despite the Big Baller Brand gaining attention from both players and celebrities, it doesn't look like Ball is interested in doing anybody any favors as far as lacing them up for free in his son's shoes. Even Jay-Z recently said he bought three pairs. While Ball does not plan to have any players aside from Lonzo wear the ZO2, it will be interesting to see if any sneaker free agents rock them on court this upcoming NBA season.
