Lakers asked Lonzo Ball if BBB part of ankle problems

While the screenshot of Ball changing his profile photo to a snap of himself wearing some Nike gear as a child might not be the most damning piece of evidence, another screenshot featured Ball's own comment stating his intention to move on to "bigger and better things".

Speaking to FN in a previous interview, LaVar - the outspoken Ball patriarch - said he couldn't come to terms with boldface name brands Nike, Under Armour and Adidas on a deal he deemed favorable for his son ahead of his debut in the National Basketball Association.

Foster has been a friend of Ball's father, LaVar, for many years, and owns over 15 percent of BBB.

Only a day after it was reported by ESPN that Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball would be severing ties with Big Baller Brand partner Alan Foster, Ball is dropping some Nike-friendly content on his Instagram to the liking of his teammate and Nike-lifer LeBron James.

The speculation started when Ball posted a picture on Instagram with the slogan "It's only a insane dream until you do it", which is the marketing slogan Nike has been using for the past year.

Foster initially agreed to arrange to meet with ESPN to give his side of the story, but then put it off, saying he was "super busy".

LaVar Ball was also a driving force in allowing Foster into the family business, according to ESPN.

LaVar Ball, of course, has been the boisterous face of Big Baller Brand, pushing the shoe and apparel that has largely been a failure.

"Yeah, they talked to me", Lonzo Ball told ESPN. "They asked me about it, and I told 'em, 'I feel comfortable". If I wasn't comfortable, I wouldn't play in 'em.

Lonzo Ball's injury woes have been persistent, and the Lakers are wondering if his shoes had anything to do with it.
