On Monday, Ballislife caught up with LaVar who made a bold proclamation that essentially put a target on the back of Lonzo, and his teammates. When asked about the 2-0 Washington Wizards coming into town to take on the Lakers, LaVar confidently proclaimed, "They better beware because Lonzo ain't losing again. Not in the same week!"
LaVar's response got a reaction out of Wizards center Marcin Gortat, who made a promise of his own, stating that John Wall will "torture" Lonzo for 48 minutes.
As impressive as Lonzo's second career NBA game was, it's important to remember that Ball did it against a Suns team in disarray and a point guard in Eric Bledsoe who has already checked out. When Ball squared off against a locked in opponent like Patrick Beverley, he was eaten alive. Wall is more than capable of doing the same to Lonzo.
Even though Gortat had to come to the defense of his team, he still feels bad for the situation LaVar puts his son in with this trash talk.
