The Lakers’ rookie isn’t wearing his own shoes tonight.
Lonzo Ball rested during the Lakers’ summer league game against the Kings earlier this week.
Tonight, Big Baller Brand is getting a rest.
Los Angeles’ star rookie has opted to wear Nike Kobe ADs instead of his signature shoe, the ZO2, for this evening’s game against Philadelphia.

Here’s a better look at the shoe Ball is wearing.
Lonzo Ball is on the court warming up, but not wearing his signature BBB shoe. He's in this Kobe A.D., which isn't a bad choice. pic.twitter.com/o87zZN12c2

Maybe the ZO2 just isn’t every game ready at this point.
The shoes, which were designed by Lonzo, retail for $495. They’re even available in Lakers’ colors now (but won’t ship for a while).
Ball, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft, is currently playing on ESPN. He’s looked good.
