    Good hustle

    He's hurting his brand too. And Lonzo has to ball crazy for this brand to take off

    How is this hurting his brand?

    Work hard, go for yours, don't take no for an answer....that's the brand I see them trying to build so how does this hurt...You don't think Lonzo knows he has to ball out..

    the oddest sports story ever
    And its kind of sad that its odd. More professional athletes should be using their own recipes to eat instead of looking for a piece or somebody else's pie.

    I would agree if he was proven. Its odd because hes still amature and his daddy is his mouthpiece so far in his career.
    Yeah, but they still get some respect for trying to do their own thing this early in. He can still fall back and do it the way niggas have been doing it before, too. But at least they're taking a shot.

    I would have more respect for the move if we didnt already know he gonna be signed to nike or Adidas in a couple months

    Its a get rich quick hustle for someone who dont need it. Just hurting his actual brand in the long run.

    Like dude above me said. If he dont ball like Jordan rookie year nobody gonna buy into his hype his own daddy set for him before he ever got drafted.

    Yeah, but at least they took a shot. These other niggas just jumped right into being owned. If Lonzo is taking care or business on the court then all of that money is coming regardless.

    You say its good he took a shot.

    But hes turning people off of his son at the same time.

    Possibly costing him money from when he actually signs to a real Brand.

    There is no room for error in young Lozos career now.

    Chips are all in. Thanks to daddy and his mouth
    At least they ain't doing no sucker shit trying fit on to anyone else's brand, that's why they made their own. Their shit taking off would only make them respect it even more lol.

    The free promotion he is getting is what I'm hearing on the Dan Lebetard show is equivalent to 50 million dollars

    If the Ball boys are going to play in these shoes, I hope the shoes have been tested

    The thing is, Lonzo can play but he's not special.. i doubt he even starts next year and if that's the case these high priced kicks will be a failure

    Lets revisit this in November

    Too many sheep.

    Not enough willing to test the waters.

    Imagine Lavars blueprint without being an ass tho... imagine if he had the same game plan and was.....


    Wait for it....

    If that's the case why not take a 5 year 10 million dollar deal from a shoe company and then use that money to start your own shit.
