NBA Draft: Lonzo Ball launched a brand new Lakers Big Baller Brand shoe minutes after being drafted

New, comments

Big Balling in the purple and gold.

Lonzo Ball’s dream of becoming the point guard that leads the Los Angeles Lakers came true Thursday night, selected with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

It appears Big Baller Brand was ready for this moment, launching a brand new colorway of the ZO2 Prime within minutes of the selection going official:

They’ll still set you back a cool $495 if you want a pair, and the release makes sense considering LaVar Ball was posted a video on Instagram within the last week stating that pre-orders for the original launch model were closing on draft day.

Here’s the description of the “Sho’ Time” ZO 2’s, straight from the biggest, ballerest site there is:

The ZO2: SHO'TIME! is a first class fit for any collection, and the official colorway to be worn on the Court by Lonzo Ball.

Inspired by an iconic era the ZO2 SHO'TIME! colorway comes just in time to start a new era of dominance on the court. Lonzo Ball’s Zo2 unveiled first-of-its-kind innovations by a rising star and the Zo2 SHOTIME! takes these innovations to new heights.

Sleek design, ultralight materials, an Advanced Performance Insole is embedded throughout the entire shoe for maximum comfort. Sock-like fit for exceptional all-day comfort and authentic style, and off the court. A full bed of shock absorbent material keeps the shoe lightweight for high-speed performance.

Microfiber python texture to finish the look. All wrapped in that iconic PURPLE and GOLD we love so much. Pre-Order available for a LIMITED TIME.

No Refunds or Exchanges. Ships February 10th, 2018 in time for All-Star Weekend: Los Angeles!

It appears Lonzo also had a pair on deck in Brooklyn to put on after the selection went official:

Spoken into existence.
