Trump's ZO2s are on the way.
President Donald Trump's Big Baller Brand ZO2 Prime sneakers are on their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, according to the Big Baller himself, LaVar Ball.
TMZ Sports caught up with LaVar after last night's Warriors vs Lakers game at Staples Center, and he said the shoes have been sent and the President should have them by now. "I sent Trump his shoes," LaVar told TMZ Sports. "He should have them -- unless they took 'em!"
After his war of words with Trump earlier this month, LaVar vowed to send him a pair of Lonzo's signature shoes in hopes that the gift would help Trump "calm down a little bit."
The LaVar vs. Trump "beef" all stems from comments LaVar made after the President took credit for getting three UCLA freshmen basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, out of shoplifting charges in China. During President Trump's trip to China earlier this month, he claims to have convinced Chinese President Xi Jinping to let the players return home, and wondered, via twitter, whether the players would thank him.
The players did thank Trump and his administration at a press conference shortly after returning to Los Angeles, but LaVar downplayed Trump's role in the matter.
“I would have said thank you if he would have put (LiAngelo) on his plane and taken him home...there’s a lot of room on that plane," LaVar said during an appearance on CNN.
Those comments prompted a string of tweets from Trump, in which he referred to LaVar as a "poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair" and an "ungrateful fool." Shortly thereafter, LaVar said he'd send some ZO2s to the White House, and here we are today.
It's unclear if the package ever arrived, but we won't hold our breathe waiting for Trump's unboxing video.
