Lonzo 近期登上 LightHarted Podcast 時透露 ZO2 其實不是一雙可靠的球鞋，它是具有重大的瑕疵，但沒有人知道。「我幾乎每打一節就要換上新的一雙 ZO2，它太容易裂開，我經紀人 Darren Moore 都會準備一個包包裡頭裝進四雙備用鞋，我不得不穿上這些鞋，我們廣告都打這麼大了。」Lonzo 說道。
“No one knows the real story about them shoes though,” Ball said. “Them ZO2s I was playing in, they was not ready. No one knows this, but [Darren Moore, Ball's manager] had a backpack, and he had an extra like four pairs of shoes in there because I had to switch them every quarter, because they would just rip.” He continued: “I had to debut them. We went so far with it, it was like, cool, I can get a quarter in, but that’s it. And it’s crazy, because right when I switched my shoes, all of a sudden, magically I got good again.”
以上言論也是 Lonzo Ball 首次批評自家球鞋，過去的他在著用大廠時的表現都會格外地好，而現在的他尚未簽約任何一間運動品牌，未來或將能在球場上「正常發揮」了。有興趣的讀者不妨留意 HYPEBEAST 的追蹤報導，亦可率先近覽 YEEZY BOOST 350 V3「黑白魂」最新實鞋圖輯。
