LaVar Ball is asking for triple times NBA Superstar Lebron James shoe deal from Nike, Under Armour, Adidas or any brand that wants to make a deal with his Big Baller Brand for his son Lonzo Ball.
Lavar says his asking price is now $3 billion, this is almost three times Lebron James new shoe deal worth over $1 billion.
In an interview with Fox Sports 1’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd,” LaVar Ball reiterated that he wants his son, NBA prospect Lonzo Ball, to play only for the Los Angeles Lakers and revealed he’s sold 400 to 500 pairs of $495 ZO2 shoes since they launched two weeks ago.
Ball was asked about dealing with the big shoe companies and said they will regret not making a deal with him after his son is picked by the Lakers.
“Now that Lonzo’s headed to Los Angeles, what they should have done is give me a billion dollars and let me be on my way,” he said.
Told that number was unrealistic, Ball replied, “unrealistic to you.”
“Now you know … if they want to talk to me now, it just went up to $3 billion. Triple Bs — billion, billion, billion,” he said, adding: “That’s the only way they going to come at me. I’m already in the building. I don’t need them for nothing, as you can tell.”
