Here's how to find out whether you are truly a Big Baller

The first shoe has been unveiled by the Big Baller Brand

Lavar Ball is one of the most polarizing people in the sports world right now and he's not even an athlete. He has never been short for words, whether saying he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one in his prime or that Nike should offer his three sons a $1 billion dollar shoe deal.

LaVar Ball answered his critics on Twitter, writing: "If you can't afford the ZO2'S, you're NOT a BIG BALLER!"

The Big Baller Brand signature slides will retail for $220.

South Africa's ANC accuses judiciary of pandering to opposition
Vally said Zuma must give "the record of all documents and electronic records...that relate to the making of the decisions". He has so far not given any specific reasons for removing Gordhan and replacing him with new Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba.

Ball didn't give ESPN any specifics on how many pairs have already sold. "But they might get them a little auto to get them from A to B. Just like Shaq was saying".

The reporter asks: "Would you buy your kids a pair of shoes for $500 from an unproven National Basketball Association player after college?" But assuming you have no horse in that race, you can rep all four for about the same price as the first signature shoe of a probable top-3 draft pick. But no amount of fatherly adoration warrants a almost $500 price point for a player who hasn't even been successfully drafted into the National Basketball Association yet.

The Balls were turned down by the major shoe companies - Nike, Adidas, Under Armour - after LaVar insisted on doing a licensing deal for his Big Baller Brand instead of a standard endorsement deal. However, Ball has a way of getting under people's skin.

India breaks into Federation Internationale de Football Association top 100 after 21 years
Argentina continued in second place, while World Cup victor Germany stayed in third, followed by Chile in fourth. The Indian football team made it into the top 100 of the FIFA World Rankings for the first time in 21 years.

Said LaVar: "The people that are complaining are the ones who can't get the shoe and don't want the shoe and that's fine because there's a lot of people out here that want the shoe and can get the shoe".

The shoe is billed as available for pre-order on the BBB website but won't actually be shipped until November 24.
