Okay so….Lonzo Ball, LaVar Ball’s son who is predicted to be a top-three pick in the upcoming N.B.A. draft released a new sneaker that retails for $495.00 US dollars…
The ‘ZO2’ kicks have been the topic of conversation for the past week because of it’s high price point, nonetheless, The Game took to IG to say that he bought his son and a few of his friends the sneakers to support the young baller.
He went on to address those who are complaining about the price, yet investing in designer items such as Gucci flip flops.
At the end of the Instagram dissertation, The Game says he will buy 10 pairs of sneakers for kids who can not afford to buy the the Lonzo Ball’s ‘ZO2’s’ on their own.
Read the full post below:
Just bought my son @hvrlemtaylor & a few of his friends the “Lonzo @zo Ball’s” #Z02 kicks just on the pure fact that I’ve spent over a million dollars, shit probably more on Nike’s, Jordan’s & other big name sneaker brands in my lifetime so why not support a family brand & a rising stars shoe….. Funny how niggas will go & buy Gucci flip flops for $300-400 with no complaints but then complain & bitch when a kid & his family is making a name for themselves & trying to grow their own brand….. I also think about all these $500 duplicate Jordans niggas out here going broke & dying over just trying to keep up with Jones’s…. While MJ, as much as I love & support him & his legacy ain’t really ever did much for the black community other then tax our mothafuckin’ ass for the same shoes over & over as well as charge these kids parents hella money to get in these camps. & again, no hate… MJ is MJ but today I chose to support @Zo & his family…. fuck how anybody feel about it… keep making memes if that’s all yo broke hatin ass can do….. maybe sometimes, people need to delete the meme app off they phone & start creating their own legacy instead of picking apart someone else’s….. I will also be buying 10 more pair of @Zo’s kicks for 10 kids who’s parents can’t afford them….. on behalf of myself & @therobinhoodproject #DatWay #TheRobinHoodProject #BigBallerBrand #itAintTrickinIfYouGotItA post shared by The Game (@losangelesconfidential) on May 10, 2017 at 11:14am PDT
