LaVar Ball Tweets A Message To Everyone Who Hates Him

LaVar Ball on ESPN.

The most-talked about father in basketball has a message for his doubters.

LaVar Ball has something to say.

Shocking, we know.

With Ball's attempts to get partnership deals with major brands like Adidas, Nike and Under Armour reportedly not going well, the father of former UCLA star tweeted out a message.

It's only his second tweet ever.

"BBB" as in his brand, "Big Baller Brand," which he's attempting to turn into a billion-dollar brand.

He's currently seeking partnership deals with major brands and is developing a signature shoe, which he's hoping will retail in the $200 range.

Adidas reportedly remains in play for a deal, according to The Vertical.

Adidas, which sponsored UCLA this past season along with the Chino Hills (Calif.) High School basketball team that features younger Ball brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo, has yet to formally discuss a shoe deal with Ball Sports Group. “It’s not dead yet,” a brand source told The Vertical. An official meeting would potentially take place in the coming weeks, with the brand not yet ruling out making a standard endorsement offer.
