Golden State Warriors’ Coach Mike Brown Will Not Be Buying Lonzo Ball’s $500 Signature Shoe
UCLA’s Lonzo Ball is expected to be a top pick in this summer’s NBA draft. And he’s wasting no time jumping on the custom shoe bandwagon by releasing his own signature shoe! Last week, Ball’s father’s brand, the Big Baller Brand, announced Lonzo’s shoe to the delight of many. The $495 shoe became the laughingstock of the internet, as most signature shoes from NBA stars are in the $150 to $175 range.
At a pregame press conference on Thursday evening, Mike Brown, interim coach of the Golden State Warriors, was asked if his kids would be receiving the $500 shoes as a gift in the near future. The reporter who asked the question even got in a dig, saying that the shoes were from an “unproven” NBA player. Brown’s reaction was priceless. He simply laughed, and then laughed a little more. So basically, a resounding “No.”
