It’s been a hell of a ride in 2019 between the Ball family and investor Alan Foster in running Big Baller Brand. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Foster scammed almost $2 million out of the Balls. Lonzo recently wanted to change the name but his father, LaVar, wasn’t with that and wanted to keep the brand alive and well.
Foster has been on YouTube exposing Lonzo’s ankle injury and how it still needs surgery. He added that the Lakers didn’t want him to have the surgery due to it possibly hurting his trade value. In June, he became a New Orleans Pelican after the Anthony Davis trade. Lonzo has been trying to distance himself from the brand as he covered up his BBB tattoo.
As far as BBB’s future, the brand is looking to back a huge comeback from all the drama. A post was upload to their Instagram account this afternoon saying they’re alive and well. They’re restructuring the website and it’ll be revealed in a few weeks. This is after people noticed that the BBB website now takes people to Foster’s personalized site.
It concluded by saying LaVar has put the right team around the brand and new merchandise such as sneakers will be on the way. Flip the page for the full IG post announcement on the new website, and the original one going to Foster’s website .
