Lonzo Ball wears Nike over Big Baller Brand in Summer League game

Lonzo Ball is not a big baller, apparently.

The Lakers rookie, whose father LaVar created a shoe and clothing line for the family, was seen wearing Nike Kobe AD sneakers in the Lakers Summer League game Wednesday night.

Nike, along with Adidas and Under Armour, passed on endorsing Lonzo in April because LaVar wanted a “co-branding partner.”

Instead, LaVar created Big Baller Brand and introduced the ZO2, which is currently going for the “low” price of $495.

LaVar has said if you can’t afford them you’re not a big baller.

Lonzo, the second overall pick in the NBA Draft, recently signed a four-year, $33.4 million deal on July 3, but he still must be waiting on that first paycheck.

Sorry, Lonzo.
