LaVar Balls Big Baller Brand is apparently not big balling at all, according to the Better Business Bureau which offered them a failing grade in terms of their overall business execution..
BBB has received 32 formal complaints and 44 negative customers reviews with zero positive reviews, which qualifies them for an “F” rating.
Blair Looney, the CEO of Better Business Bureau of Central California, told TMZ Sports that the organization has “… definitely substandard normal business practices for anybody.”
The complaints detailed orders that have been both delayed and incorrectly processed.
This company does not offer refunds, read one entry from November. I purchased 2 items and was told there would be a 1-2 week delay. I have been waiting 6 weeks now, and when I asked why it was taking so long, I was called a small baller. At this point I believe they have decided to steal my money.
The Big Baller Brand, launched last year, had ambitions of making licensing deals with Nike, Under Armour and Adidas. All of those major footwear and apparel companies decided to pass. BBB sells hats, sweatshirts and T-shirts with the Big Baller Brand logo, but raised eyebrows with the release of the ZO2 sneaker, the signature shoe of oldest son and Lakers rookie Lonzo, which retails at a starting price of $495.
Lonzos sandals sell for $220, while the Melo Ball 1s, inspired by 16-year-old Lithuania pro LaMelo Ball, the youngest of LaVar’s basketball playing sons, can be yours for the low price of $395. If they ever get delivered, that is.
