If you've ever seen HBO's Succession, you know it is a program about a powerful man who built a giant company and his three children and the rest of his inner circle are all fighting to be in position to take control of it once he retires and/or dies.

Big Baller Brand is kind of the opposite of that.

Lonzo Ball began his NBA career wearing his infamous $495 BBB signature sneakers, before basically just deciding to wear Kobe sneakers. His little brother LaMelo Ball, a possible top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, recently signed with Puma. Father and company founder LaVar Ball was shown reacting to this news on a recent episode of Ball in the Family. (Via LonzoWire]
