Lonzo Ball Severs Ties With Big Baller Brand Co-Founder

Lonzo Ball

All isn't too well on the business side of Big Baller Brand after news came down that Lonzo Ball has severed ties with BBB co-founder and business manager Alan Foster.

Foster has a criminal history that includes a seven-year prison sentence in 2002 for defrauding 70 investors of $4 million.

According to ESPN, LaVar Ball did not review the warnings until recently.

Does Instagram post point to Nike?

Ball added that he told the Lakers he was open to making adjustments, specifically "just minor things" to his Big Baller Brand shoes if necessary.

He outright denies writing any song for the film whatsoever. It is produced by Suresh Oberoi, Anand Pandit and Ssingh. Akhtar said he had not written any songs for the film.

But there are certainly undercurrents there that allude to a potential change of apparel.

Ball accompanied the photo with the Nike slogan "It's only a insane dream until you do it" and the hashtag #MyOwnMan.

Speaking to FN in a previous interview, LaVar - the outspoken Ball patriarch - said he couldn't come to terms with boldface name brands Nike, Under Armour and Adidas on a deal he deemed favorable for his son ahead of his debut in the National Basketball Association.

Ball noted in the ESPN report that it was he - not his father - who made the decision to cut ties with Foster. The company was slow to deliver on the debut of its $495 ZO2 shoes. In 2018, the bureau received 184 complaints about Big Baller Brand, mostly related to incorrect merchandise shipments, shipping orders on time, not providing information or responding to questions. "Due to the Ball Family's business structure, my interactions with Alan Foster were very limited. I don't want to go back to them", the elder Ball said. If I wasn't comfortable, I wouldn't play in 'em. If I wasn't comfortable, I wouldn't play in 'em. "I work out in [LeBron James" signature Nike shoe], but that's because they're heavier".

Lonzo Ball's injury woes have been persistent, and the Lakers are wondering if his shoes had anything to do with it. At best, I was on the periphery of the rest of the Ball Family businesses.
