By now you all have heard about the absurdly high price of Lonzo Ball‘s new sneakers.
Many celebs have called out Ball for pricing the shoes at $500, saying that is is disrespectful and irresponsible of him to expect young teens to cough up that much cash for some shoes.
However, The Game, who took to Instagram in support Ball, saying that socity will dish out much for designer clothing that is around the same price but have a problem when an athlete does the same it’s frowned upon.
Still, Game has acknowledged that teens can’t afford the shoes, so he took to Instagram again to announce that he will be gifting 10 kids with pairs of the sneakers.
How nice. Check out the announcement below.
Just bought my son @hvrlemtaylor & a few of his friends the “Lonzo @zo Ball’s” #Z02 kicks just on the pure fact that I’ve spent over a million dollars, shit probably more on Nike’s, Jordan’s & other big name sneaker brands in my lifetime so why not support a family brand & a rising stars shoe….. Funny how niggas will go & buy Gucci flip flops for $300-400 with no complaints but then complain & bitch when a kid & his family is making a name for themselves & trying to grow their own brand….. I also think about all these $500 duplicate Jordans niggas out here going broke & dying over just trying to keep up with Jones’s…. While MJ, as much as I love & support him & his legacy ain’t really ever did much for the black community other then tax our mothafuckin’ ass for the same shoes over & over as well as charge these kids parents hella money to get in these camps. & again, no hate… MJ is MJ but today I chose to support @Zo & his family…. fuck how anybody feel about it… keep making memes if that’s all yo broke hatin ass can do….. maybe sometimes, people need to delete the meme app off they phone & start creating their own legacy instead of picking apart someone else’s….. I will also be buying 10 more pair of @Zo’s kicks for 10 kids who’s parents can’t afford them….. on behalf of myself & @therobinhoodproject #DatWay #TheRobinHoodProject #BigBallerBrand #itAintTrickinIfYouGotIt
