We haven't heard much from Lavar Ball recently, which has been nice, as he's been overseas's with his two sons and Lonzo's Lakers had an underwhelming year. The Big Baller Brand hasn't been represented by any other NBA player until one New Orleans Pelicans player decided to lace up the "ZO2 Prime Remix" kicks.

That player was newly reacquired guard, Jordan Crawford. He wore them in the game on Monday night when the Pelicans defeated the Los Angeles Clippers to clinch a playoff spot.

Here's what Crawford said about rocking the ZO2's during game action this week:

I'm sure more players will eventually come around to wearing the shoe, especially with the new guys coming into the league from college. A lot of guys already in the league are tied up in shoe deals with specific brand companies. Maybe that was another reason Crawford decided to wear the Big Baller Brand kicks, he doesn't have a shoe deal, and wanted to make a little statement. I do think the next edition should be more of a high-top look shoe.
