Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball has only played in two NBA Summer League games, but he's developed into one of the most polarizing figures in the league today. Following his rocky debut where he scored five points on 2-for-15 shooting from the field with five assists, four rebounds, and three turnovers in 32 minutes, people were quick to hit the panic button. Or, even worse, call him a bust. The very next game, Ball silenced his doubters by racking up a triple-double with 11 points, 11 dimes, and 11 boards.
After (briefly) settling down all the haters, Ball should have just laid low. Instead, this year's No.2 overall pick created another brushfire by delivering this scalding hot take on Twitter.
Needless to say, people weren't feeling what he had to say.
Lonzo is wrong, but the anger due to his tweet>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>— 🌹🌹🌹 (@RobbyRav) July 9, 2017
