Lonzo Ball Admits That BBB Shoes Exploded On Him Very Often


Ever since BBB co-founder, Alan Foster, allegedly stole $1.5 million from the Ball family brand, leading to Lonzo Ball cutting ties with his father’s company, it has been awfully quite around the brand.

While LaVar Ball said that everything is good, the company hasn’t advertised merchandise since March 22. They also haven’t posted on social media in the past couple of months.

On top of that, Big Baller Brand’s official website has been ‘under construction’ to ‘be back soon’ for the better part of the past month. Are they done, or are they regrouping and collecting themselves for a relaunch?

Well it seems as they are in liquidation mode as they were selling the remaining gear at ridiculously low prices at California volleyball tournaments. Shirts that originally went for $50 were sold for $5.

On top of all that, Lonzo Ball, who no longer is the face of the brand (rumors are he’s signing with Nike), has reportedly sold Big Baller Brand’s distribution warehouse in Los Angeles, per a report by the LA Times. The 14,635-square-foot building apparently sold for $4.3 million.

But this could turn out to be a good thing for Lonzo. In the most recent episode of the LightHarded Podcast, Ball admitted that he went through one pair of sneakers in every quarter, due to the shoes ‘exploding’:


“If you literally have my shoes from those games they just like exploded, bro.”

“I had to debut them. We went so far with it, it was like, cool, I can get a quarter in, but that’s it. And it’s crazy, because right when I switched my shoes, all of a sudden, magically I got good again,”




Sounds like at least some of Ball’s many injuries seem to have been avoidable by wearing better shoes.
