Lonzo getting rid of all things BBB-related.
Lonzo Ball is apparently cutting all ties with the Big Baller Brand, and that includes covering up any BBB-related ink on his body.
Just days after it was revealed that Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster reportedly stole $1.5 million from the Lakers' point guard, Ball's tattoo artist made a house call to cover up the BBB tat on his right arm.
The cover up: An awkward looking pair of dice bearing the numbers 1, 2, 3, likely a nod to the numbers that Ball and his brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, wear on the court.
Naturally, this led to rumors that LaVar Ball's first-born son was ready to ditch BBB in favor of The Swoosh. His BBB tattoo cover up seemingly solidifies the rumors that he is finished with BBB, but it remains to be seen if he'll sign with Nike.
Of course, LeBron James says he would welcome Lonzo aboard Team Nike if that's what he chooses to do.
LeBron tells The Los Angeles Times' Tania Ganguli:
"I love the fact that he's taking control of his s--t. I mean, he's, that's what's really, really dope to me. Once I saw that story, I just seen a kid turning into a man. 'This is my career and I'm taking this. I done had enough with—whatever. I done had enough. Whatever. If I'm not going to be successful, I'm not going to be successful on my terms.' I saw a lot of that. We'll see.
"Whatever the kid decides to do, whatever brand he comes with next—if it's with Nike, obviously we would welcome him. I would definitely welcome him. I love the kid regardless of what shoes he had on. But we shall see."
