Why Lonzo Ball needs to get out of the shoe business and stay in the hoop business! “Shoe Game”

"I can't trust my future to a pair a shoes that haven't been proven yet right!"

LaVar Ball has been talkin’ a billion dollars worth of trash about the Big Baller Brand takin’ over for the past three months! He stuck a price tag on the joints that would literally choke a horse. Then he told boyz to buy them now but they won’t ship until November with no refunds.

Ole boy told cats that if they couldn’t afford them that they weren’t big ballers. However, when the dun that is SUPPOSED to be endorsin’ the freakin’ shoe shows up for his freakin’ pre-draft workout he’s got on James Harden’s shoes!! Wheredeydodatat?

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! If you’re tryin’ to promote your own brand then why wouldn’t you wear them when you show up to workout in front everybody and their baby’s momma!! Every media outlet in the country had eyes on this foolishness today and may as well have shown up barefooted.

If ole boy didn’t trust his own shoes in a workout why would duns pay $500 for them? Why would a boy pay $135 for them?

Yeah and I know that he wore the Harden’s durin’ his time at UCLA and he’s probably more comfortable in them. I guess! And I get that! But this is business playboy. If your old man is runnin’ around hollerin’ Big Baller Brand and talkin’ about bein’ independent and tryin’ to punk the shoe companies into signin’ a licensin’ deal etc. Then you’ve got to wear the brand to prove that it’s worth takin’ a chance on.

The fact that Lonzo didn’t want to put the joint on and it’s his shoe destroys the brand’s credibility right out of the gate. And please don’t give me that, “He’s more comfortable in the Harden joints that’s why he wore them” foolishness. If he’s more comfortable in the Harden joints then he needs to be endorsin’ them instead of the Big Baller Brand. Why? Because he just made Adidas bread today instead of his brand!

Everybody and their baby’s momma saw him in the Adidas Harden 1 “Disrupter” at the Lakers facility and guess what playa? Maybe he should just play basketball and leave sellin’ shoes to the duns that know how to sell them. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.


The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
