According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Ohm Youngmisuk, the Los Angeles Lakers have spoken with Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma about their ongoing roast battle, and asked them to "tone it down." Even though they are considered to be close friends, Ball’s recent diss track "Kylie Kuzma" may have been the final straw for the organization, seeing as the jokes have become more and more personal. 

"Don’t know who your daddy is, well your ass is getting sonned," Ball raps in reference to the absence of Kuzma’s biological father in his life. Kuz responded to Lonzo’s track, writing, "No Pusha T. No comeback I’m whoppin yo a** Wednesday."

Kuzma’s mother Karri posted a tweet on Wednesday most likely in response to Lonzo’s track.

In February, Ball told ESPN that nothing had been taken personal on both sides because they knew how far they could take their jokes. "See, what you got to know is there’s set boundaries. Like certain you can’t [bring up]."

With the Lakers still living in the shadows of the fallout between former teammates D'Angelo Russell and Nick Young after Russell leaked a video where Young admitted to cheating on then-fiancée Iggy Azalea, the team understandably wants to prevent a repeat scenario that causes a divide in the locker room. The verbal jabs can be in good fun now, but all it takes is one offensive remark to fracture their relationship, and cause a ripple effect throughout the organization. The Lakers have a positive thing going right now. The last thing you need is a joke gone wrong to hurt the franchise's future.
