Earlier this week, Lonzo Ball unveiled his debut signature shoe after rejecting shoe deals with brands like Nike and Under Armour and going against the trend by making his own shoe.
The shoe, called “The ZO2”, was unveiled on Thursday, and while it looks like normal shoes you'd expect NBA players to wear, the difference is the price tag, as they cost a whopping $495 per pair, which is more than twice as much as usual top star NBA players shoes. There are even autographed editions which cost just under a thousand dollars.
The extensive price for the shoes has caused many reactions on social media, with some even taking pop shots at LaVar Ball and Lonzo Ball for the high price tag despite the fact he is yet to even play in the NBA.
However, Golden State Warriors interim head coach Mike Brown, had the best reaction out of everyone on the internet when he was asked about The ZO2 shoes.
When he was asked by a reporter if he would buy his kids a pair of the $500 shoes from an unproven player out of college, Brown burst into a loud and hysterical laughter before simply saying no.
Watch Brown's brilliant reaction in the video below:
If Brown is going to buy his kid any pair of basketball shoes, it will probably be a pair which one of the players on the team he coaches wears, as they are proven players in the league. Not from Lonzo, who hasn’t yet been drafted or played a single minute in the NBA.
Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Draymond Green are probably the hot contenders, as all three scored over 20 points during the Warriors' Western Conference Semifinals Game 2 win against the Utah Jazz on Thursday night at the Oracle Arena, to give the team a 2-0 lead in the series.
Two more wins for the Warriors and the team could find themselves in the Western Conference Finals for the third time in as many years. There, they could meet either the San Antonio Spurs or the Houston Rockets for a spot in the NBA Finals.
