The relationship between Lonzo Ball and LaVar Ball is going as bad as their sneaker brand.
Lonzo, the pelicans guard point, revealed that he and his father are on the run right now during the last episode of the family's Facebook live reality series "Ball in the Family" titles "Traded".
"I don't know. We're still not really talking," Lonzo said when asked about his father's reaction to his Lakers trade that brought Anthony Davis to Los Angeles.
The rift in their relationship has been present since the Big Baller Brand crashed and burned after Lonzo separated from Alan Foster, the company's co-founder and family business partner who allegedly defrauded the $ 1 company, 5 million. Lonzo is currently suing Foster and the Big Baller brand website has been falling for months.
"Our relationship is not as it was in the past," said his father's Lonzo during an interview on "Ball in the Family". "So, we're not really talking too much right now. I really don't know how it feels. But I know he just wants the best for me. He should be happy. I don't know."
Lonzo has not been kind to Big Baller Brand recently calling him "demolished" and saying on Josh Hart's "Lighthearted" podcast that "I magically came back well" when he stopped wearing sneakers.
In an episode earlier this month, LaVar and Lonzo argued after choice no. 2 in the draft of 2017 suggested changing the name of Big Baller Brand.
"Listen to me, son: when I go out with a name and then someone tells me to change it, it's like telling me to change your name," LaVar said. "It's as if people were saying," Oh yes, change Lonzo's name in Alfonzo to the fact that he has been damaged for the last two years "."
It is their relationship at this time that has been damaged.
