Without Big Baller Brand shoes, Lonzo Ball puts on show in win

He scored 10 points on 4-5 shooting along with four rebounds and two assists in a Lakers 103-102 win against the 76ers. The Lakers' medical staff held Ball out for precautionary reasons, but the team sounded optimistic about the possibility that he plays in the championship game.

Ball's outspoken father, LaVar, who created Big Baller Brand, offered a little more insight into the thinking behind his oldest son wearing Nike, Adidas and Under Armour over the past few days. They seem to be working. Ball had his shot going, at one point posting up a defender before hitting a turnaround fadeaway jumper. "And with 6th man Jordan Clarkson, veteran Luol Deng, backup point guard Tyler Ennis, backup swingman Corey Brewer, rookies Thomas Bryant and Josh Hart rounding out the roster, it is safe to say that the Lakers" arrow is pointing all the way up.

So far, his stat lines have been mediocre at best, and though it's just Summer League, his lackluster play has been enough to at least raise eyebrows among the Lakers' faithful fans. After a dud of a first game, he has the Lakers rolling with his up-tempo, spread-the-ball-around style of play.

He added: "For me it was actually very hard to focus on the match, as well, as my mind was all the time blocked with the pain". The Croat later revealed he had a nasty blister on the sole of his foot that was restricting his movement.

After an exciting semifinals round, the Trail Blazers emerged as winners over the Grizzlies and Lonzo Ball's Los Angeles Lakers took down Dennis Smith Jr. and the Dallas Mavericks. It was interesting. "At BBB, you can wear whatever you want... might as well get the Mamba Mentality going", said Lonzo postgame when asked about his wardrobe change. Lonzo played his first two games of the Summer League in his own signature shoes, the ZO2s, made by the company brand owned by his family. "I think they realize this is really good forum for them".

With cap-space and Lonzo Ball in the driver's seat of a team that features some exciting young talent, the future is looking bright for the Lakers.

The Lakers/Kings battle was one that went down to the very last minute with Sacramento's Buddy Hield and LA's Vander Blue trading three-point shot after three-point shot.
