Four-star Portland linebacker Eli’Jah Winston’s older brother, La’Mar, was the top-ranked player in Oregon in the class of 2016. LaMar committed to the in-state Ducks, where he played sparingly as a true freshman last season.
Eli’Jah’s considering following his brother’s footsteps, but he doesn’t sound close to a college decision yet. He doesn’t have a top-five list, but he said if he did, Oregon, LSU, and UCLA would be included. A firm leader, though? Not so much, at this point.
Here is an extremely average t-shirt you can get for $60. Urban Outfitters gets away with a $38 t-shirt. This is just absurd.
Yet, the pricing actually makes no sense because a hooded Big Baller Brand sweatshirt is also $60. You’ve added more material, including sleeves and a hood yet the price is the same. There are a actually a few $70 sweatshirts though if that is more your style.
Here is where it gets fun. We’ve got $100 hats, y’all! Cork and mesh.
LaVar Ball is pretty adamant about his brand too. He spoke with Keyshawn Johnson and basically compared BBB to Jordan Brand.
“They’re kicking in the door, but they’re shocked at what I’m telling them. I said, ‘I’m not looking for no endorsement deal. I’m looking for a marketing and distribution deal.’ Branding. The only person doing that is (Michael) Jordan with Nike. That’s what we’re for. If Lonzo doesn’t sign with Adidas, Nike or Under Armour, guess what — I’ll sign the Big Baller Brand. We already got our own brand. Triple B’s. Lonzo is going to be the first one drafted with his own brand. That don’t happen.”
What’s even better is that LaVar likes his own brand so much that he gave the clothing to his kids for Christmas last year. They honestly look less than thrilled, but this entire video is fantastic.
