which idiot really decided to pre-order this?

I would've gotten it if I could afford it. It wouldn't have been a sneaker that I'd wear, but it'd be symbolic in the sense that I'd be trying to support a family business that's trying to compete with these sneaker giants.

I say all that in past tense because I don't really support Lavar pullin his kids out of school to pursue a career in the NBA, but I'm still glad Lavar has shown the nerve to at least try things differently.

I like different too. I was on team Ball early b/c I wanted to see another good young PG play differently than the others. I also thought that it was cool that a family would go up against the big shoe makers- companies that by and large pay people in other countries to ship silly sneakers across a big ocean so that nerdy guys in suits can further make money off of young, urban kids.

Then they priced the shoe at $500.

BBB could been a cool story (almost like Stephon Marbury), but now its tacky and just like the Hiltons/Kardashians. Especially considering that Lonzo stinks so far.

I just thank all that is just in the world that the Celtics didn't draft Lonzo Ball. And, yeah, I'm very happy the Lakers did.
Orlando Magic
G - Terrence Ross/Elfrid Payton/D.J. Augustin/Arron Afflalo/Evan Turner*/Joe Johnson*
F - Aaron Gordon/Mario Hezonja/Jonathan Isaac/Wesley Iwundu/Caleb Swanigan*
C - Bismack Biyombo/Marreese Speights/Khem Birch/Omer Asik*/Ekpe Udoh*

So many picks now.
