Lonzo Ball chooses Nikes over his own brand-name sneakers in game against 76ers
Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball has chosen to ditch his Big Baller Brand sneakers for some Nikes, as the No. 2 overall selection rolled out a pair of Kobe A.D.’s in proper purple against the Philadelphia 76ers in tonight’s Summer League matchup.

This isn’t the first time he’s made his own sneakers look like a piece of non-wearable sports memorabilia, as he’s done so in the prior two games he’s played in the Summer League as well as his initial workouts prior to the draft.

His shoes might be having some performance troubles if he’s not able to roll them out during these games.
Guess the beefy price tag isn’t really reflective of the quality of the kicks that garners it.
We’re yet to see if his father LaVar will fine him for wearing a different brand during these Summer League games.
