In response to all the controversy, Ball downplayed the symbolism by saying, "At BBB, you can play in what you want". And on Wednesday night, so were his Big Baller Brand sneakers. The Lakers second-year star Brandon Ingram was injured in that same game, and despite the injury being minor, Magic Johnson made a decision to shut him down for the rest of the Summer League.
On Thursday, he made people go nuts once more, as he completely switched brands once again. Sure, this could just be that he's improving with more playing time in the Summer League, but it's certainly more fun to think it could be the shoes. Because of that, the other Lakers are moving well off the ball, running the court, and he has changed the dynamic of the Lakers team (much like he did at UCLA).
Hopefully next game we can catch Ball in some Under Armour Curry's, or maybe he can even show some love to Sketchers and don some of those for a night.
The first-round game of tournament play in the Las Vegas Summer League between the Sixers and Lakers came down to the final seconds. After a dud of a first game, he has the Lakers rolling with his up-tempo, spread-the-ball-around style of play. Vander Blue scored a game-high 27 points. He said he wore them as a tribute to former Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant.

The Lakers continued to dominate play inside and out, as they finished 77 percent from the 3-point line and 61 percent from the field. They are running shoes, but I can interview ballers all day wearing them. It has only been a few games, but seeing how Lonzo operates is already exciting his teammates. "The whole time it's been like that, I've just been settling". Instead, Ivaca Zubac got free and was fouled with 4.6 seconds left, making both free throws to give the No. 15 seeds the lead for good. Pinpoint passes of all sorts whizzed by the heads of several 76ers, and Lonzo's explosive scoring night came without an accurate three-point shot. He dished out 10 assists, all by halftime, to go with four rebounds in an anticipated showdown with Dallas rookie Dennis Smith Jr.
The 2016 No. 25 overall pick Brice Johnson led the Clippers (3-1) with 13 points while Jamil Wilson scored 11 off the bench and Kendall Marshall added 10. "Their pace in the first half kind of killed us, and they were getting easy layups in transition and getting to the rim at will". He would have been matched up against Kings rookie point guard De'Aaron Fox.
The Lakers shot a blistering 17-of-22 from 3-point range and led by as many as 26.
