We need water, but do we need it from Big Baller Brand?

LaVar Ball’s basketball shoe and clothing company has agreed to a partnership with Lithuanian water company Birstonas Mineral Water, as reported by Fresh Sports Talk and Lithuanian site 15min.it.

Birstonas Mineral Water will distribute bottled water to the United States, with Big Baller Brand labels slapped on the bottles.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell adds that the price of Big Baller Brand’s water will be “will be on par with Perrier or San Pellegrino.”

Here’s what LaVar had to say about the water to 15min.it:

“What player NBA advertises water? No one. Everybody in America is somehow too proud of water companies. There are energy drinks that are advertised, but nobody even thought about water. And here we come from the Atlantic with water. Lithuania has the best water in the world! Zero nitrate! What kind of water is more transparent?”

Yep, that sure sounds like a LaVar Ball quote.

The Big Baller Brand partnership with a Lithuanian company comes after LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball started playing professional basketball in Lithuania last month.
