Last week Baron Davis teamed up with Lili’uokalani Trust to put on a basketball camp for 100 local kids in Honolulu, Hawaii. We had a great time bonding with the kids and building relationships with the trustees. It was great teaching the game of basketball and life to a such a great group of kids.

Lavar Declares Lonzo, LaMelo won’t leave BBB

For the Big Baller Brand, it’s all about family.

However, after the Ball family’s company had been hit with fraud, scandals, and faulty products, New Orleans Pelicans Lonzo Ball and top 2020 NBA Draft prospect LaMelo Ball are considering starting fresh with new endorsement deals.

But according to their father Lavar Ball, his two sons aren’t going anywhere.

In his TMZ interview, the CEO of Big Baller Brand stated, “Lonzo can think all day. He ain’t signing with nobody but Big Baller Brand.”

Recently, Lonzo openly stated he is interested in signing endorsement deals with other brands. Lonzo has also encouraged his brother LaMelo to take meetings with other shoe brands before signing a shoe deal.

Lonzo has appeared to be at odds with Lavar all offseason. After Big Baller Brand Co-Founder Alan Foster allegedly stole $1.5 million from the company, Lonzo became wary of the company’s value. In response, Lavar claimed Lonzo is “damaged goods” on their hit reality TV show Ball in the Family.

Lonzo has also gone on record to bash the quality of BBB’s products, claiming he “had to switch [his shoes] every quarter because they would just rip.”

Lavar also said LaMelo would stay with the brand as well, even though he has not worn any BBB shoes while playing in the NBL in Australia. Nike has reportedly scouted LaMelo for a potential endorsement deal with the Oregon-based company.

With the Big Baller Brand facing so much turmoil, Lavar’s fatherly commands may not be enough to keep his sons with the family brand.

The Washington Mystics Win First WNBA Championship in Thrilling Fashion

What a difference a year makes for the Washington Mystics.

After being swept in last year’s WNBA Finals by the Seattle Storm, the Mystics came back this season with a vengeance.

Lead by league MVP Elena Della Donne, the Mystics secured the best regular-season record in the WNBA and battled in a grueling Finals series against the Connecticut Sun, winning the series 3-2.

With Della Donne battling several injuries (including three herniated discs in her back), it was Emma Meesseman that delivered with 22 points in the winner-take-all Game 5.


Messeman became the first European-born WNBA Finals MVP, while Della Donne added 21 points. Connecticut Sun’s Jonquel Jones fought hard to the very end, leading the runner-ups with 25 points.

This championship was a long time coming for Mystic’s Head Coach Mike Thibault. The winningest coach in WNBA history finally secured his first title after 17 seasons.

Washington Wizards players John Wall, Bradley Beal, Ian Mahinmi and CJ Miles were in attendance to cheer on the Mystics.

With the tenacity these women have shown throughout the season, it’s no surprised Della Done is looking forward to some much-deserved rest.

Stephen Curry Lights Up Timberwolves with 40 Points in Three Quarters

Published

It may only be the Preseason, but Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry is in mid-season form.

In last night’s matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Curry shot a blistering 14-19 from the field for 40 points in only 25 minutes. Curry also knocked down 6 three-pointers and added 6 rebounds and 6 assists.

The Timberwolves had no answer for Curry and the Warriors, losing in a fast-paced 143-123 blowout. 

Young additions Jake Layman and rookie Jarrett Culver were the sole bright spots for the Timberwolves, leading the team in scoring with 17 points apiece.

Ironically, the last player to score 40 points in an NBA Preseason game was also Steph Curry, who once again dropped 40 points against the Timberwolves on Oct. 8th, 2017.

With Kevin Durant leaving in free agency and Klay Thompson out until at least All-Star break, Curry is expected to take on a much more significant offensive role for the Warriors.

If last night is any indicator of what Curry will play like during this year’s regular season, the rest of the NBA might be in trouble.
