Lonzo Ball Had No Interest In Backing Teammates During Lakers-Suns Fight

Another day, another lowlight from Lonzo Ball

During the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 122-114 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Friday, the two teams got into a heated scuffle over God knows what. But the real story wasn’t about the players who actually engaged in the fracas.
