Money, it’s gotta be the shoes?
6’2 LaMelo Ball isn’t a threat to win many dunk contests but his hops are improving. On Sunday, the recently turned 16-year old with a Lambo and his own signature sneaker, hit the gym and had a dunk off with a few friends. Melo even wore the $395 Big Baller Brand shoes while trying to do his best impersonation of Zion Williamson and the NBA2K lag on his Instagram account.
Speaking of IG, did you know Melo has 2.5 million followers, which is more than the Adidas hoops account (2.3) and way more than UA basketball (1.6)?
