Big Baller Brand: Rashad McCants to wear ZO2 shoes
You do not must be a ball to be a big ball.
Rashad McCants will wear Big Baller Brand ZO2 shoes at this summer’s BIG3, Ice Cube’s 3-on-3 basketball league. The ZO2 is Lonzo Ball’s signature shoe, which was launched by his father LaVar’s Big Baller brand last month.
“Sometimes it rubs people the wrong way when you come out as hard as LaVar, as doomed as he was and passionate, it rubs people the wrong way,” McCants said on the Big3Show podcast. “And I salute him, and I’m going to wear these ZO2s when BIG3 starts and I’m going to support him at full strength.”
The ZO2: Prime retails for $ 495 for most sizes. McCants, who was the No.1 pick in the BIG3 Draft, has praised Ball in the past for not signing with a big company like Nike, and he congratulated Ball on his independence on the Big3Show.

“I believe in entrepreneurship, I believe in breaking the mold, I believe in challenging the status quo and I think that’s what it does. It opens up a whole new path for everyone really realize you can do your own thing, “said McCants. “You don’t have to go sign with Nike. You don’t have to go sign with Under Armor. You can design your own shoe and wear your own shoe.”
McCants will play in the Trilogy, a team led by Kenyon Martin and coached by Rick Mahorn. BIG3, starring Allen Iverson and Chauncey Billups, is set to begin June 25 at Barclays Center.
