Lonzo Ball Scores 36 Points in Nike Shoes During Summer League

Lonzo Ball Scores 36 Points in Nike Shoes During Summer League

Trimble, who had 13 points in 13 minutes Tuesday night against the Boston Celtics in the Las Vegas Summer League, played just six minutes against the Lakers Wednesday. And he did it in Nikes.

But after lauding Ball on the court, the four-time NBA MVP couldn't help but jab at the Lakers newbie's curious choice of shoes in his breakout game. Instead, the three-time National Basketball Association champion found himself a court-side seat as he made an appearance in Vegas. Well, it only got worse for LaVar Ball's pet project, because Lonzo went out and played the game of his (young) life. "[I] put them on, and it worked out tonight".

In all, Poythress registered 16 points (7-11 fg, 1-3 3fg, 1-2 ft), five rebounds, and one monstrous, lap-top-screen-fritzing dunk on Lonzo Ball.

Furkan Korkmaz scored 19 points for the 76ers, who were playing without Markelle Fultz (ankle), the player drafted before Ball.

Boston has been the best team in the tournament and Philadelphia competed well with them last night.

The third time was the charm for Lonzo Ball.

Despite his epic performance, the post-game discussions have centered around Ball's shoes. 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. While his father, LaVar, has been a fervent and boisterous spokesperson for Big Baller Brand as its CEO, he said that he didn't mind the sneaker switch. LaVar Ball made headlines when he asked companies for a $US1 billion licensing deal (and later raised his price to $US3 billion), and fans were livid when it was announced that a pair of ZO2s, slated to become available to the public in November, will cost almost $US500.
