As you may have heard, LaVar Ball brought his jump shot to last week’s BIG3 festivities in Los Angeles. The biggest baller in all the land participated in a 4-point shooting contest against Ice Cube and lost, which came as a surprise to him because it kinda looked like one of his jumpers got nothing but net. (On further review, the shot was obviously hoisted up by Ice Cube.)
But still, Ball was in attendance and put on a show, as he’s wont to do. He also decided to be charitable, as he literally gave someone the shoes off his feet. While walking around the bowels of the Staples Center, Ball decided to hook BIG3 player Rashad McCants up with a pair of ZO2s with the Showtime colorway.
This left Ball in a tricky situation as, you know, he no longer had shoes. But he apparently decided he didn’t care, as Ball just walked around the Staples Center without any shoes on his feet to make up for it. It’s not clear when this happened, but based on the fact that he had these shoes on his feet when he went up against Ice Cube, we can probably assume this happened after. Either way, trying to get the kicks directly from Ball like this is a smarter financial move than dropping nearly $500 on a pair.
