Big Baller Brand gets 'F' rating from Better Business Bureau

Big Baller buyers beware!

LaVar Ball’s Big Baller Brand apparel company has scored a big fat ‘F’ rating from the Better Business Bureau, according to TMZ Sports.

The outlet reported that the Better Business Bureau has received 41 negative reviews — 33 of which are formal complaints — and zero positive ones. That’s good enough for the lowest rating possible for the brash basketball dad and his family.

Blair Looney, the CEO of Better Business Bureau of Central California, told TMZ that the organization twice reached out to the company to help with its issues, but said the offers have fallen on deaf ears.

“This is very definitely substandard normal business practices for anybody,” Looney said.

Complaints published by TMZ detailed orders that have been both delayed and incorrectly processed.

“This company does not offer refunds,” read one complaint, per TMZ. “I purchased 2 items and was told there would be a 1-2 week delay. I have been waiting 6 weeks now, and when I asked why it was taking so long, I was called a ‘small baller’. At this point I believe they have decided to steal my money.”

LaVar Ball launched Big Baller Brand last year and hoped to make licensing deals with Nike, Under Armour and Adidas, which all three turned down.

But that didn’t humble the blithering blowhard. His company, which sells hats, sweatshirts and T-shirts with the Big Baller Brand logo, has garnered the most attention for its outrageously priced sneakers.

The ZO2 shoes, the signature footwear of oldest son and Lakers rookie Lonzo, start at $495. Lonzo’s sandals sell for $220, while the Melo Ball 1’s — inspired by LaVar’s youngest son and new Lithuania pro LaMelo — go for a modest $395.

LaVar has continued to cause headaches for the Lakers by recently saying coach Luke Walton has lost control of the team.

Perhaps LaVar should get a grip on his own company before opening his mouth again.
