Back in August , we covered LaMelo Ball and Puma allegedly being in the final stages of putting together an endorsement deal. Wednesday morning the brand announced their signing of the youngest of the Ball brothers.
Per Nick DePaula, Ball had this to say about signing with Puma:
“I personally chose a different path to achieve my success because that defines who I am. I know some people think I am mysterious or ‘not from here,’ and I might have to agree. I am someone who likes to be different & consider myself to be 1 of 1.”
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. An unfortunate side effect of this development is it is likely the nail in the coffin for Big Baller Brand.
