Lakers news: Lonzo Ball is still uncertain which shoes to wear on opening night, but is leaning towards his own
Ever since Big Baller Brand released Lonzo Ball’s signature shoes, many have been looking forward to him sporting them during games. However, he made a lot of headlines during the Summer League, for opting to wear other players’ sneakers instead of his own. With next season’s opening night only a few weeks away, the Los Angeles Lakers rookie admitted that he’s still not sure what to rock on the court.
The 19-year-old UCLA product shared, via Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk, that he has yet to decide if he’ll wear the ZO2s when he debuts in the NBA, although he is leaning towards lacing them up on the night.
On which shoes he’ll be wearing on opening night against the Clippers:
“That’s a great question. I don’t know. But as of right now, I’ll probably come out in my shoes [the Big Baller Brand’s ZO2s].”
Ball’s first signature shoes has drawn mixed reactions from the public as he has yet to prove himself at the highest level, and the $495 retail price on it is considered too expensive. Ball knew that even before he played in the Summer League, but he lived up to expectations with his impressive showing, and even won the MVP award.
It remains to be seen if he’ll indeed wear them on opening night, but whatever shoes he’ll sport by then, one thing that’s certain is that he will receive a lot of attention once again, and that its sales could receive a major boost if he can continue playing well throughout the season.
