Lonzo Ball wearing Nikes: Is it another Lavar Ball marketing ploy?

Lonzo Ball wearing Nikes: Is it another Lavar Ball marketing ploy?

"You can wear whatever you want when you play with Big Baller Brand and it is just nice to get out there and do that", Ball explained. He grabbed four rebounds, had two assists and scored seven of his team's first 11 points after starting the game.

The Warriors were led by McCaw, who finished with 26 points, shooting 10-of-16 from the field.

The Sixers' No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Ben Simmons, did not play in the contest but watched court-side. They'll now wrap up their summer league slate Friday at 8:30 PM EST in a consolation pairing with the Chicago Bulls.

Boston has been the best team in the tournament and Philadelphia competed well with them last night. Ball has a long way to go to become the best guard ever, as claimed by his father Lavar, but he is certainly off to a very good start.

"Saw him at halftime", Ball said in his postgame comments.

Undrafted Terrapins' star Melo Trimble has impressed thus far as he fights for a job in the National Basketball Association, and I expect a good showing from him tonight.

Ball reiterated his desire to make his own apparel decisions despite being part of the family business.

"Just. Do. It", James wrote on Instagram.

According to CBS Sports, one of Ball's faults in his first couple of games was that he was too unselfish. He said he wanted to channel Bryant Wednesday. "I already played in both of my shoes, might as well just get the Mamba mentality going".

The Nike Kobe A.D. shoes retail for about $150.

The Sixers will have another chance to compete in the consolation round on Friday, but for now, the Lakers will advance to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In a post-game interview with ESPN, Ball defended his choice of shoes, saying the BBB can be whatever you want.
