United States President #Donald Trump could be one of few people who will own a pair of the ZO2 from the Big Baller Brand. The ZO2 is the signature basketball shoe made for #Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.

In November, Donald Trump began feuding with Big Baller Brand founder, #LaVar Ball. Trump was upset with LaVar after the latter refused to thank him for helping his son LiAngelo Ball [VIDEO]. LiAngelo and two fellow UCLA freshmen got jailed in China for allegedly shoplifting in a Louis Vuitton store.

A week ago, LaVar Ball said he is gifting Donald Trump a pair of ZO2s for him to "calm down a little bit." On November 29, following a Los Angeles Lakers loss to the Golden State Warriors, LaVar told TMZ that he already sent Trump's shoes.

TMZ has the latest update on Donald Trump's ZO2s. According to the report, the White House revealed that Trump is yet to get the footwear LaVar Ball promised, but they are "trying to track them down."

LaVar blames Randle

Aside from his brewing rivalry with Donald Trump, LaVar Ball is busy criticizing the Los Angeles Lakers once again. The victim of LaVar's recent tirade was Lakers forward Julius Randle.

In the Lakers' overtime defeat to the Golden State Warriors, they had an opportunity to win the game in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter. With less than 10 seconds left, Randle got the rebound after a missed jumper from Kevin Durant. Randle ran with the ball, but before he reached the halfcourt line, there was a timeout called. LaVar stated that Randle should have made a forward pass to Lonzo Ball, who he thought had an opening for a game-winning layup or a three-pointer if he got the ball.

It was not the first time LaVar blasted the Lakers. Also in November, the outspoken father of Lonzo claimed that the Lakers coaches are soft [VIDEO]. He added that they do not know how to coach his son.

Struggling Lakers

It is likely that as the season rolls, LaVar Ball will continue to meddle with Los Angeles Lakers business, especially now that the team is struggling to win. The Lakers are currently riding a three-game losing streak. In their past two outings (against the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors), they had the chance to win but failed to capitalize. Due to this, they fell to an 8-13 record for the 11th spot in the Western Conference standings. The only squads below them are the Memphis Grizzlies (7-13), Phoenix Suns (8-15), Sacramento Kings (6-15), and the Dallas Mavericks (5-17).
