Big Baller Brand releases Independence Day-themed shoes

NBA, Los Angeles Lakers, UCLA Bruins

One day after Lonzo Ball signed his first professional contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Big Baller Brand celebrated by releasing a new line of Independence Day-themed basketball shoes.

The red, white and blue colorways of Ball's signature sneaker, the ZO2, hit the marketplace Tuesday, starting at $495 per pair. Sizes 14 and 15 go for $695.

According to the Big Baller Brand website, preorders for the patriotic collection are available for a "very limited time" and will ship on Nov. 24.

Ball is expected to earn $33.4 million over four years in his contract slot as the No. 2 overall draftee, although the Lakers didn't formally announce the terms of the deal.
