As LaVar Ball oversees his youngest two sons' professional basketball debut in Lithuania, his image stateside is taking a further battering. The hoops patriarch has been served with a lawsuit over money allegedly owed to a company that worked on embroidery for Ball's Big Baller Brand apparel products.

Ball has not paid $25,000 owed to Closet Connection, a lawyer told USA Today's A.J. Perez. "We haven't even heard from him," attorney Michael Sayer said.

The Big Baller Brand faced ridicule in many quarters after its launch last year, given the $495 price tag attached to Lonzo Ball's signature shoe, the ZO2. Recently, it has come to light that BBB has the lowest possible rating on the Better Business Bureau's customer satisfaction grading system.
