LaVar Ball, primogenitor of a Big Baller Brand combined for a 3 gifted basketball players he fathered, has no filter when discussing, well, only about anything.
He is on record as observant that a opening figure for a shoe agreement for his 3 sons—one of whom, Lonzo, is approaching to be a first- or second-pick in a NBA draft—is $1 billion.
Nike, Adidas and Under Armour already have upheld on Lonzo, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports.
“In his meetings with all 3 companies, LaVar insisted that they permit his pretender Big Baller Brand from him. He also showed a companies a shoe antecedent that he hoped would be Lonzo’s initial shoe,” Rovell writes.
Then there was this LaVar Ball quote in Rovell’s story:
“Just suppose how abounding Tiger [Woods], Kobe [Bryant], Serena [Williams], [Michael] Jordan and LeBron [James] would have been if they dared to do their possess thing. No one owned their possess code before they incited pro. We do, and we have 3 sons, so it’s that most some-more valuable.”
Let’s only outline that Tiger has finished good adequate for himself. Woods’ gain averaged $100 million annually in an eight-year widen from 2002 by 2009, according to Ron Sirak’s investigate for Golf Digest, and he has warranted in additional of $1.4 billion.
Forbes, in a list of America’s wealthiest celebrities, placed Woods seventh with an estimated net value of $740 million. Jordan, a list noted, had an estimated net value of $1.2 billion.
Imagine, as LaVar Ball said.
