Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball said he appreciates Jay-Z purchasing three pairs of his signature Big Baller Brand shoes. In the wake of that comment, Ball has expressed his gratitude for the rapper's purchase.

"I'm just thankful, man", Ball told TMZ. Usually a man of few words, Ball doesn't say much else on what this might mean for the family business, and defaults to his refrain that he just plays basketball. But I bought three pairs. "That man has a vision of his own", said Jay-Z with regards to Ball's father, Lavar Ball. "Why wouldn't I support him?"

"Nike had to start somewhere", he continued. "That s**t is puzzling to me".

We got Lonzo out in Bev Hills over the weekend - after dropping some cash at Louis Vuitton - and asked about Jay publicly and privately throwing his support behind the Big Baller Brand.

The $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2 Prime won't be shipping out until November but Jay Z will be one of the first people to get their hands on the most talked about sneakers of the year. Joining rappers The Game, Nipsey Hussle and Slim Thug, as the only hip-hop acts to admit buying the shoes, the list of rappers will more than likely grow once Lonzo makes his professional debut.
