Lonzo Ball Is Charging All Of The Big Ballers At NBA All-Star Weekend $199 For An Autograph
Lonzo Ball might have grown up in Los Angeles, but it seems like he’d be more at home in Silicon Valley thanks to his (and his father’s) impressive ability to preach their own gospel in order to convince people to throw an absurd amount of money at an over-hyped and unproven product. At this point, there’s still a chance the Laker ends up becoming the Pets.com of the NBA, but it appears he’s doing everything he can to go toe to toe with Kristaps Porzingis in a battle to be the league’s next unicorn.
Ball was unable to secure a spot on this year’s All-Star roster thanks to his inability to play like one, but anyone flocking to Los Angeles to take part in the festivities this weekend will still have a chance to get the full Big Baller Experience as long as they’re willing to head to a shopping mall in the City of Industry and fork over close to $200 for an autograph.
According to Darren Rovell, Ball will be hosting a signing session at the Puente Hills Mall on Saturday where fans will be given the opportunity to have the item of their choice signed for the oh-so-reasonable price of $199 (I’d like to thank the always-vigilant Lonzo Wire for bringing this to my attention after I missed the initial announcement in the midst of all the other shit he’s been doing to stay in the headlines).
You’ll have to pay an extra $10 to get the autographed authenticated and risk having your Big Baller citizenship revoked if you have the nerve to ask for an inscription or a photograph.
Based on a previous BBB event, you might want to make sure you take out some cash before heading down to the mall.
