This past weekend has been a whirlwind for Lonzo Ball and his family. Amidst the scandal involving the co-founder of Big Baller Brand, the business venture might be ending soon.
According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the family has discussed folding Big Baller Brand. After Alan Foster was found to have stolen 1.5 million dollars, the Ball family has cut ties with the co-founder.

Since then, Lonzo Ball has hinted at joining Nike. If you recall, during NBA Summer League before the start of his rookie season, Lonzo Ball had several games where he wore different branded shoes, from the James Harden 1’s to the Kobe Bryant A.D’s sparking debate on which sneakers the former Bruin would wear during the year. Since his rookie season and going into his sophomore season, Lonzo has been wearing his own models of the Zo 1 and Zo 2’s.
Amidst the news going on, LeBron had some support for Lonzo through the ordeal.
With Big Baller Brand all but officially folded, the news of Lonzo signing with another company is all but officially confirmed.
