LaVar Ball acknowledged his son’s wearing of different shoes serves as both a temptation and an invitation to the brands that passed on him.

“It’s making a statement to the brands of what they could have had with an open mind,” the patriarch said via text message. “The players are the brand ambassadors. The brand is nothing without the players.” Asked whether there’s still a chance for a big shoe brand to sign his son Lonzo, LaVar responded: “If the price is right. Quite frankly we are officially in the shoe game, and are a billion dollar brand either way.”
