There is very little middle ground when it comes to how people feel about LaVar Ball. The patriarch of basketball’s Ball family that he insists is poised to take over the NBA speaks his mind freely and unconcerned with consequences at all times. He hypes up his sons, most notably his eldest Lonzo that is a presumptive top-3 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, and isn’t afraid to compare them to the all-time greats in the game.
LaVar Ball has rubbed many the wrong way. He has, within the last six months, beefed with LeBron James, Charles Barkley, and Shaquille O’Neal among others over various things, but not everyone is anti-LaVar. Among those that Ball can count in his group of supporters is none other than Jordan Crawford aka Steez aka Steezus. The bucket-getting legend that has bounced in and out and back into the NBA with the Pelicans to end this past season is on board with the Big Baller Brand movement.
On Wednesday, Crawford tweeted out that he needed the “LaVar Ball shoes” and then, once provided with the link, quickly pre-ordered his pair of the ZO2 Primes.
