Lonzo Ball makes major Big Baller Brand statement with tattoo

Lonzo Ball makes major Big Baller Brand statement with tattoo”

Ball confirmed Tuesday night that he covered up his Big Baller Brand tattoo of red and black with a new tattoo of a pair of black-and-red dice. Put Barkley in front of any microphone and he'll nearly always have something interesting (or bonkers) to say.

Funnily enough, Ball had to cover up the Big Baller Brand tattoo this season due to an National Basketball Association crackdown on commercial logos, which really is quite the show of force for the league's merchandise deals.

"He should've been his own man from the beginning", Barkley said.

"He should have been his own man from the beginning", said Barkley about Ball distancing himself from his father, "you can't let your family members try to piggyback on your success".

There are some things I agree with Barkley on and some I disagree with him. This is his time. I'd like to see him healthy.

This came one day after a video of Ball's manager disposed of a pair of Big Baller Brand sneakers with the hashtag #dumpyourmerch.

It was never going to work, and I feel bad, because this ol' big mouth jackass dad has put his kid in an awkward situation all year.

The caption reads: "It's only a insane dream until you do it", which is a Nike slogan and, tellingly, is placed next to the swoosh brand on his jersey. And it's clear he still feels that way, even with Big Baller Brand shuttering and LaVar finding the spotlight a lot less than he used to.

Lonzo Ball has been out since late January with an ankle injury and is not expected to return this season. Barkley has always been a critic of LaVar and his antics, and this recent scandal appears to prove Barkley right.

Charles Barkley still thinks LaVar Ball is the worst.
