In the most recent episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping, the Ball family went shopping at the famed Flight Club store in Los Angeles with Joe La Puma.
Their conversation included what shoes were their favorite growing up, what LaVar played in when he was younger, and who designed the inaugural Big Baller Brand shoe.
No surprise, LaVar Ball does most of the talking, while his talented sons played second fiddle.
Part infuriating, part entertaining, by the end of the conversation LaVar Ball makes everyone look crazy for balking at his shoes $495 price tag.
In a 12-minute video, LaVar Ball talks for about 11 minutes and 40 seconds.
Some highlights include him standing behind his stance that those who can’t afford the BBB shoe, aren’t really big ballers. He also speaks at length about the shoe that he used to “ball” in; keep in mind that LaVar Ball only ever averaged two points per game in 26 games for Washington State.
He also questions why Kanye West deserves a shoe, says that shoes are nothing but stitching and glue, and flaps his gums for several sentences without saying much of anything at all. But for some reason, I can’t get enough.
LaVar Ball: the least talented, but most vocal member of the Big Baller Brand.
