WNBA star Elena Delle Donne is the latest professional basketball player to take a shot at LaVar Ball and his Big Baller Brand.
The criticism regarding the price of Lonzo Ball’s first signature shoe, the ZO2, has died down a little, but LaVar Ball is still the target of plenty of criticism as he continues to search for the spotlight and spew his rants on camera.
For Delle Donne, the opportunity was right to take a shot at Big Baller Brand sneakers while shouting out one of her sponsors, Nike.

Lonzo Ball never received a Nike deal because LaVar played a big role in negotiations. LaVar wanted a partnership rather than an exclusive endorsement, and was looking for a $1 billion deal that would include all of his sons.
The major companies scoffed at those demands and ultimately Lonzo was left wearing his own shoe from the family brand.
You can guarantee this won’t be the last time we hear someone taking a shot at the Ball family anytime soon, especially with Lonzo set to play his rookie season with the Los Angles Lakers and his younger brother LiAngelo set to take the court for UCLA in 2017.
