The Internet Chimes In On Lonzo Ball Not Wearing His Signature Shoe

Is it the shoes?

All eyes were on Lonzo Ball’s performance and shoe game last night. Lonzo Ball’d out in the Lakers Summer League game against the Sixers. Ball ended the night with 36 points, 11 assists, 8 boards, and 5 steals.

An impressive night for sure, but he put those numbers up in the Nike Kobe AD, not the BBB ZO2. Of course the Internet immediately noticed Lonzo wasn’t wearing his signature shoe, so the Internet did what what it usually does, and voiced its opinion.

LeBron James was in attendance at the game, and he also added his two cents regarding Lonzo wearing Kobes by posting on Instagram, “Just. Do. It.”

  • Not a good look imo. You have a signature shoe so it makes sense to wear your own shoe, but I also understand just because you create your own shoe doesn’t mean the performance is A1. I mean, he can do whatever he wants, but putting up numbers like that in your sig shoe is great for marketing the product.

    He knows that a signature shoe from Nike will net him a lot more money in the long run than those weak ass Kobe want-to-be joints that they put out. Watch he is gonna sprinkle in some more nikes during the season eventually switching over using the excuse that his shoe was more of a lifestyle shoe than a performance shoe. That he will eventually like to seek in his future trying to create his on brand in the future, but for now he will be hooping in his Air Lonzos

    I WANNA CARE, BUT I JUST CANT…if he scored a million points in his kicks, they still look like shit and you’re a fool to think if you buy a pair you can play better…same goes for any signature shoe….the player shoots the ball, not the shoes

  • curt diggler

    its a good look for sneaker sites……this shit is golden clickbait for yall

  • DJR

    I’m agree with you 100% G. Not only did he just give Nike free advertising if he wants to deal with them in the future they have the upper hand because they know he likes their product. He’s lucky this is a somewhat meaningless summer league game but he better hope he has a performance like this in his sig shoe when games count.

    He’s already made history just having his own outta the gate so no harm,no foul.It’s a good look to pay homage to a Laker great & has full freedom to do so.The Kobe AD is good to go on court.

    I’m more concerned with the jersey game… Nike NBA jerseys coming this season

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    Maybe that OTHER shoe is trash & he had no choice but to put on something he can play in.

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    Truth. The other brand out nothing but garbage.

    And maybe you can stop taking everything so serious and control your sneaker thirst ?

    But, the point being talked about (in part bcus this kid’s family has brought so much attention to themselves…) is that you endorse your brand by wearing your brand. UnderArmor Steph Curry shoes are donkey meat, rite? But freakin little kids every-damn-where want to wear his shoes bcus of what he’s done on the court. The shoes dont matter as far as how you play. But Ball playing well while wearing his own shoe over a period of time will help sell HIS shoe while wearin someone else’s shoe won’t help to sell his shoe. Y’i mean?

    But again, we only talkin about this bcus of his big-mouth dad not wanting to shut the f_ _k up.

  • I was kinda thinking that as one of my theories. The first version or two could be uncomfortable or have some other problem and he has no choice but to play in whatever he’s got until they’ve sorted it all out. If that is the case people need to remember this ain’t Lebron or Kobe who has a legacy worthy vault of his own kicks to choose from while his “major brand nike” sorts out the bugs.

    But I digress and this is all really silly. Why does even of this matter? A maniacal, compulsive liar is in the White House, the economy is still crumby and people worrying about this mans shoes. FFS…
