LaVar Ball Accused of Stealing the “Big Baller Brand” Name

Human megaphone LaVar Ball has once again made his way into the news, but this time, it’s an accusation from an Argentinian company that has people talking:

Attention‼️👮🏽👮🏻 @Lavar @Zo @Melo @Gelo @bigballerbrand are a thief‼️ He stole our brand name a few years ago and added "Big" to his brand name. We are an Argentinian🇦🇷 Brand stablished in 2006, this guy who wasn't creative enough to create his own brand name just took ours.😡 Share it to show the world who is the original @ballerbrand 🗣 In Ball We Trust. Atención‼️👮🏽👮🏼Lavar Ball es un ladrón!!! Robo nuestro nombre de marca unos años atrás y le agrego el "Big" a la suya. Nosotros somos una marca Argentina 🇦🇷establecida en el 2006, este hombre que no fue lo suficientemente creativo para crear un nombre, directamente tomo el nuestro. Compártelo para mostrarle al mundo quien es la real marca @ballerbrand @slamonline @bleacherreport @dimemagazine @nbaontnt @nba @real_gm @stepheasmith @worldstar @houseofhighlights @kristineleahy #lavarball #bigballerbrand #ballerbrand #lonzoball #lameloball #ballbrothers #thief #lakers #ballfamily

The folks at Baller Brand, a company “stablished” 10 years prior to LaVar’s Big Baller Brand, seem irked by the similarity between the two names. As you can see, they’ve gone out of their way to include every possible handle and hashtag in an effort to plead their case.

Is this a case of plagiarism? Probably not. Putting “baller” in the name of your athletic wear company isn’t the most original thought in the world, so it isn’t too far fetched to imagine these companies evolving separately. Although weirdly, Baller Brand’s Instagram bio reads, “In Ball We Trust.” You could’ve told me that came straight outta LaVar’s mouth and I would’ve believed you.
