Ohio State Football Coach Blasts LaVar Ball’s Overpriced Sneakers

LaVar Ball and his ridiculous Big Baller Brand dropped its first signature sneaker for his son, UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball, who is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The shoe will retail for an absurd $495, which immediately prompted backlash on social media.

The shoe is ugly, overpriced and it’s easy to see why companies like Nike, Under Armour and adidas wanted to do with it, but there’s one person who has a particular interest in the Lonzo Ball logo and that’s Ohio State assistant Zach Smith.

After the sneaker dropped, Smith took to Twitter to blast LaVar Ball for stealing  his “Zone 6” logo — which is the nickname for Ohio State’s wide receiver group.

But Coach Smith used this as an opportunity to add to his resume.

Poor Lonzo Ball. His dad is a lunatic and his signature sneaker is the joke of the basketball world.
