It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for the Big Baller Brand. Last week, it was announced that Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball had parted ways with Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster, a close friend, and confidant of his father LaVar. Foster was unable to account for $1.5 million, and Lonzo believes Foster, who had a criminal history, was using the access to his finances for his own benefit.
All of this comes just ahead of the scheduled Big Baller Brand All-American Game which is set to take place on Sunday, March 31.
But despite strong hints that Big Baller Brand could be folding, the game — which was created to highlight LaMelo Ball after he was passed over by the other All-American Games due to eligibility concerns — will go on.
Alexis Robinson of Diamond Marketing and Public Relations spoke with USA TODAY Sports and confirmed the game is still taking place.
“All the players are confirmed,” Robinson said, via For The Win. “Their flights are out. The family is here. Everything is still intact. Everything is confirmed. LaVar is actually going on local radio here three times tomorrow to talk about it. It’s all happening.”
The game, headlined by LaMelo and his SPIRE Institute teammate Rocket Watts, a Michigan State commit, takes place at The Orleans in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tip-off is set for 3:00 p.m.
