Even though the oldest Ball brother has only just released his signature shoe, Big Baller Brand are already plotting a model for the family’s youngest member, LaMelo. ESPN’s Darren Rovell broke the news in a tweet, declaring that BBB had trademarked the name ‘MeloBall1’.
The Big Baller Brand has already filed to trademark "MeloBall1," presumably the future shoe of LaMelo Ball, who is a junior in high school.

The move suggests little LaMelo, age 15, has a sneaker in the pipeline. Nothing has been heard about middle brother LiAngelo's future footwear – we hope it's not a blatant case of Papa Ball playing favourites. Then again, maybe LiAngelo's content – like Lonzo seems to be – wearing every other shoe brand under the sun.
