LaVar Ball is a great Father and good business man. No matter what anybody says about his behavior, nobody can say he's not a good Dad.
On the business side of things, he's managed to keep his family name in the headlines, while keeping Big Baller Brand somewhat relevant as well.
But, unfortunately for LaVar, he often takes it a bit too far. His big mouth and huge ego are no doubt risking everything. That reality may be coming to fruition with this latest blow.
Nick DePaula of ESPN reported that the Chinese based company, Anta, has declined "repeated requests" from Big Baller Brand. BBB was seeking a partnership deal after initial discussions with Alta about "private label manufacturing concept."
This news comes after reports of Big Baller Brand being denied by Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour. For BBB, nobody seems the least bit interested. Whether it's LaVar's controversial comments or the Brand's unknown legacy, no big partner seems interested in Big Baller.
At least for now, it looks like LaVar and his brand will have to wait on Lonzo. If Lonzo develops into a star, Big Baller Brand will no doubt make its name known. But if Lonzo is a bust, he may take the entire brand down with him.
This is quite a big blow to a man with such a big ego. For Big Baller Brand, Lonzo could be their only hope for future success.
