Splash Baller? Lonzo Ball rocks Curry 4's in Summer League game

Editor's Note: The above video is from the May 4, 2017 episode of The Happy Hour.

Is Lonzo Ball having second thoughts about his $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2 shoes?

Ball wore his signature shoe for the first few games of the NBA Summer League, but over the last three games, he's abandoned the ZO2's for more established shoes.

In the first round of the Summer League playoffs, Ball rocked Kobe Bryant's Nike shoes and dropped 36 points. In the next game against the Cavs, Ball wore James Harden's debut Adidas signature shoe.

On Saturday night against the Nets, Ball wore an unreleased pair of Steph Curry's Curry 4's and finished with 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

Following the game, Ball was asked about how he decided to wear Curry's signature shoe.

"When I wake up, I decide that," Ball said in a postgame interview on ESPN.

So what will Ball wear next? We'll find out Sunday night when the Lakers take on the Mavericks in a Las Vegas Summer League semifinal.

John Wall commits to Wizards long term with huge contract extension

The Washington Wizards' long-term future is now a lot clearer, as superstar point guard John Wall agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $170 million. David Aldridge first reported the news.

Wall, 26, re-ups with the Wizards through the 2022-23 season. By the time it expires he will be 32 years old, meaning the Wizards have locked him up for the majority if not all of his prime.

Wall was able to earn the dollar amount he did in part because of his selection to third team All-NBA for the 2016-17 season. Under the recently installed collective bargaining agreement, honors like All-NBA and Defensive Player of the Year allow players to earn more money on contract extensions.

The Wizards drafted Wall first overall in 2010 out of the University of Kentucky. In his seven NBA seasons since, Wall has blossomed into one of the NBA's best players with career averages of 18.8 points, 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. He has been an All-Star in each of the past four seasons and is a one-time All-Defensive team selection.

Kevin Love closes Twitter response with 'now go kick some rocks'

On Friday afternoon, news broke that Kyrie Irving reportedly requested a trade from the Cavs.

Shortly thereafter, a Twitter account with over 296,000 followers tweeted the following:

[RATTO: Kyrie Irving needs to be traded to one place, and one place only]

A little over an hour later, Kevin Love responded:

On Tuesday night, Irving told Sports Illustrated the Cavs are "in a very peculiar place."

In the weeks between Cleveland's Game 5 loss to the Warriors and the start of free agency, Love was reportedly on the trading block.

The Cavs and GM David Griffin "mutually" parted ways three days before the NBA Draft.

Cleveland is finally finalizing a deal with assistant GM Coby Altman to become the permanent general manager, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

LeBron James can opt out and become a free agent next summer, and there is already speculation about where he may go.

Man. The last six weeks in Cleveland have been wild...
