Lonzo Ball recently showed up to the Los Angeles Lakers draft workouts sporting another basketball star’s signature sneaker. The media sensation wore a pair of adidas shoes and attended the workout without his father, who was barred by the Laker’s closed-door policy. Lonzo opted for a pair of the “Disruptor” variant of James Harden’s adidas Harden Vol. 1 shoes, instead of his own signature $495 USD ZO2 sneakers by Big Baller Brand. Some reports note that Lonzo may have opted for a shoe he’s comfortable with as the Harden Vol. 1 is what he wore often during his time at UCLA. Additionally, there is a good chance that Big Baller Brand doesn’t have a custom shoe ready for Lonzo yet, as pre-orders from May won’t be delivered until November 24.
