Warriors Mike Brown cracked up when asked about new Lonzo Ball shoesMore

On Thursday, the company unveiled Lonzo Ball's signature shoe, the ZO2, and it was retailed at $495 and if that wasn't insane enough, they added some $220 flip flops.

The backlash from Lonzo Ball's ZO2 shoes didn't stop his father from promoting the new release.

Lonzo Ball will be one of the top five picks in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft.

The price for the shoes is a little steep, as the ZO2 Primes are selling for $495, or $695 for size 14 and above.

The Big Baller Brand signature slides will retail for $220. "When you're your own owner you can come up with any price you want".

Tensions rise after Turkish attack on Syrian Kurds
Partner forces in Syria include the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Syrian Arab Coalition, he said. The city was also home to ISIS' main prison and served as a staging area for ISIS fighters.

But the Balls have a plan: Lonzo is pitching shoes from Big Baller Brand, the family's own imprint. Let Nike and Adidas and Under Armour - they battling below me.

"All the other people on the outside is saying I'm costing them millions, you god dang right I'm costing them millions because it ain't about millions with us", Ball said, via ESPN.com. The highest price Jordan shoe over the past 2 years has a price tag of $400. So basically, "if you can't buy our shoes you're poor".

Lavar Ball and his family have taken the next step forward with the Big Baller Brand.

The MVP race was nuts this year and while the National Basketball Association actually does have to pick one, with a LaVar Ball-approved budget, you don't.
