#LaVar Ball and the #Big Baller Brand have some explaining to do. According to a recent report, customers who spent close to or more than $1000 for a signed pair of the ZO2s received an incomplete package.

On the Big Baller Brand website, there are two versions of the signature sneaker [VIDEO] of Los Angeles Lakers rookie #Lonzo Ball. The first is the "ZO2: PRIME REMIX" which is worth $495, the original retail price. The second, which was dubbed "ZO2 PRIME REMIX - THE 'WET' AUTOGRAPH," was for people looking to splurge. Each pair costs $995 because Lonzo signed it himself. Based on the description on the website, the shoes will also be inside a "clear acrylic enclosure" that has "white LED lighting," and they come with a certificate of authenticity.

Unfortunately, Weartesters reported that customers who went with the much expensive edition were not given the case promised. The proof of authenticity was there, but the ZO2s were in a regular box. Weartesters added that these customers already "reached out" to the Big Baller Brand, though there is no response yet. It is uncertain if the head of the company, LaVar Ball, will say something regarding this issue. As of the moment, the elder Ball is feuding with United States President Donald Trump. LaVar also recently fired back at former Lakers head coach Byron Scott who told him to shut up [VIDEO].

Lonzo struggles anew

The spotlight is still on Lonzo Ball when talking about the Los Angeles Lakers. Sadly, the eldest son of LaVar Ball continues to disappoint.

In a 118-95 defeat to the Houston Rockets on December 3, Lonzo folded once again for the Lakers, who are relying on his leadership.

The 20-year-old missed all four of his attempts from the field to finish with just two points. He even failed to make up for it in other categories as he finished with only one rebound, three assists, and two rejections. In 23 games so far this season (all starts), Lonzo is yet to show that he is a "Big Baller." He is averaging 8.7 points, 6.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per contest.

Losing streak

Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers have now suffered five consecutive defeats after getting drubbed by the Houston Rockets. The losing streak began following back-to-back home victories in mid-November. On December 7, Lonzo and the Lakers can snap the skid if they beat the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers outlasted the purple and gold, 115-109, when they first met on November 15.
