Lavar Ball has been saying a lot outlandish statements about his sons, but if they live up to the hype and end up becoming superstars, he may have just set up his family for life. It's evident with this latest news that he's trying to secure a $1 BILLION sneaker deal.
During the interview, Ball also said he is prepared to package Lonzo and his two other sons — LiAngelo, a high school senior who has signed with UCLA, and LaMelo, a high school sophomore who has committed to UCLA — for a marketing deal with Nike, Adidas or Under Armour.

“A billion dollars, it has to be there,” Ball said. “That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years.”

The Ball boys already are riding in style — at least the two that have driver’s licenses. Lonzo and LiAngelo each drive $100,000 BMWs, said Ball, who is a self-employed personal trainer and whose wife, Tina, is a middle school physical education teacher.

“To get my boys a little $100,000 car, that’s nothing,’’ he said. “I don’t have to pay for education. I’m saving over $1 million dollars.”

The math is sketchy. UCLA’s tuition for in-state residents is $34,000 a year, meaning Ball could save about $400,000, if each of his sons stayed at UCLA for four years. Lonzo is expected to go pro after this season and is projected as a top-five pick for the NBA draft.
I wonder what company will take the chance, and if they actually give that kind of amount. Based off the potential of all three brothers, securing all three to one brand could be huge for whatever brand decides to get him.
