BBB still not dead?
LaVar Ball isn't ready to fold Big Baller Brand just yet, even if his son Lonzo has seemingly cut ties with the brand.
Not long after Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster reportedly stole more than $1.5 million from Lonzo, the BBB website was taken down and Lonzo removed the BBB tattoo from his body, leading many to believe the brand was dead for good.
However, TMZ Sports reports that LaVar is just gearing up for a comeback.
Per TMZ Sports:
"But now, we've learned LaVar is in the process of building a new BBB team with plans to get back into the sportswear game and expand into other markets as well. He's already made some key hires."
"Our sources tell us LaVar and his team are currently working on a battle plan and hope to get everything up and running again very soon."
LaVar and the BBB recently signed public relations firm EAG Sports Management, who will certainly have their hands full repairing the image of the brand - if that's even possible at this point.
On the most recent episode of LeBron James' HBO show "The Shop," Lonzo explained how Alan Foster only began stealing money when his mother got sick.
"That's why I covered the BBB up on my arm. Because like, when I saw that, I saw him and that shit made me so, like I was tight," says the Lakers point guard. "Like when we looked at the transactions, the shit didn't start happening until my mom got sick. Because she took care of all the money shit. So that's what really hurt me. That shit hurt me. I don't even know what I'd do if I seen him right now. I ain't seen him."
