It was recently announced that Lonzo Ball parted ways with Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster after he allegedly embezzled $1.5 million of the Lakers guard's money. Lonzo has since deleted all traces of Big Baller Brand from his social media and he's hinted at making a move to Nike.
During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, LeBron commented on the situation and revealed that he's proud of his teammate. LeBron explained, "Whatever the kid decides to do, whatever brand he comes with next — if it’s with Nike obviously we would welcome him. I would definitely welcome him. I love the kid regardless of what shoes he had on. But we shall see."
James added, "I love the fact that he’s taking control of his [stuff]. I mean, he’s, that’s what’s really, really dope to me. Once I saw that story I just seen a kid turning into a man. ‘This is my career and I’m taking this. I done had enough with — whatever. I done had enough. Whatever. If I’m not going to be successful, I’m not going to be successful on my terms.’ I saw a lot of that. We’ll see. I mean he plays well when he has on Nikes."
