Lonzo Ball says he's appreciative of Jay Z's Big Baller Brand support.
In case you missed it, Jay Z revealed during his hour-long sit down with RapRadar over the weekend that he supported Lavar Ball & his son’s attempt at owning their own sneakers. In fact, Hov is such a fan that he actually bought three pairs of the ZO2’s, but like everyone else revealed he hadn’t received them yet.
“He may go about things wrong, he may have a big mouth. But I bought three pairs." Jay said. Why did I buy three pairs? That man has a vision of his own. Why wouldn’t I support him? Why wouldn’t I support him? He feels like he can move culture, and his son got a big enough name, and a big enough brand, that they can do it.”
On Monday afternoon, TMZ caught up with Lavar’s son & Lakers guard, Lonzo Ball, and was asked about his thoughts on Jay-Z’s support. While Lonzo didn’t say too much, he did say that he’s appreciative of the support.
“All I can so is thank you. I appreciate it.” Lonzo told the cameraman, before being asked about a possible future collab with Roc Nation Sports. “I just play basketball. I don't handle all that. Thats the brand’s job,” Zo added.
Lonzo, who could visibly be seen getting slightly more agitated with the questions, added that he hasn’t spoken to Jay Z personally, but did say he should be getting his sneakers in November. “They don’t come till November,” when Lonzo was told that Hov didn’t get the shoes yet.
