This past week has been a tumultuous week for the Ball family and their Big Baller Brand imprint. It was reported that family friend and BBB co-owner Alan Foster had stolen $1.5 Million from Los Angeles Lakers sophomore Lonzo Ball. This prompted Lonzo to cover of his Big Baller Brand tattoo all while hinting at a new endeavor with Nike, although the latter hasn’t been confirmed. While reports suggest that Big Baller Brand is in shambles and that it will have to be disbanded, the family patriarch, Lavar, has other plans.
During an interview with radio station 98.5 KLUC in Las Vegas, Lavar spoke about the brand’s latest setbacks, explaining that he doesn’t plan on ending the brand any time soon. The following audio comes via TMZ Sports.
“I’m not gonna let one roodypoo guy come in here and do something bad and then be like the brand’s not good,” Ball said. “The brand is good. It’s just somebody did something bad to it … We had a snake up in the thing, but you gotta understand this — I’m a snake charmer. When you’re a snake charmer, you’re gonna get bit.”
Time will tell whether or not Lonzo and his two brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo decide to continue their allegiance to their dad’s brand or leave him in the dust. This is surely some great drama for their Facebook reality show Ball In The Family.
