Lonzo Ball Going Off After Ditching The ZO2s For Kobes Is No Coincidence
By: Alex Marcheschi
I’m a degenerate NBA fan, so of course I actually watch The Summer League. I’ve been on record saying that Lonzo Ball will be the best player to come out of this draft and I’m still on that train. I will admit though, I was completely dumbfounded when I saw that he was actually wearing the Big Baller Brand ZO2s in his first two summer league games. Those shoes legitimately look like non-slip service industry shoes, they just look slow.
While wearing the BBB shoes in his first two games, Lonzo averaged 8 points and 8 assists with a 13% three point percentage.
He switched to these Kobes last night…
And he dropped 36 points and 11 assists with a 30% three point shooting percentage. That, my friends, is no coincidence. Putting Lonzo in a pair of BBBs is like putting four donut tires on a Lamborghini. He was much much quicker in the Kobes, he’s gotta stick with them.
Also, let’s not forget that shitty shoes can ruin careers. Joakim Noah’s feet got eternally ruined thanks to these awful shoes:
And Grant Hill got hurt wearing these terrible FILAs:
The moral of the story is this: you don’t put donut tires on a Lamborghini. Lonzo has to stick with the Kobes. Don’t put some BS marketing scheme ahead of your actual career as a basketball player. If he sticks with the Kobes, Lonzo is about to be some freak combo of J Kidd and Rondo and it will be amazing to watch.
