Assuming that what existed before the BB was a primordial ball is as much as guess as postulating that it was an undefined number of angels dancing on a pin.

It is generally accepted that time was created with the Universe, which St Augustine reasoned long before anyone suggested the BB. So suggesting that there was time before the BB is also a guess.

However, unless you believe in the ultimate "free lunch", which I suspect is a bit naive, there must always have been something.
There never was nothing.
