Man, Lonzo Ball has had a brutal start to his first season in the NBA.
And the hits keep on coming for the Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard.
Ball has been historically bad shooting the ball through his first 15 games, and his brutal game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday even had some commentators calling for the Lakers to send him to the NBA Gatorade League. Everyone in the NBA world outside of Los Angeles is taking pleasure in the UCLA product’s struggles, including the commentators for other NBA teams.
During the Golden State Warriors’ 92-88 loss to the Boston Celtics on Thursday, star guard Klay Thompson launched a 3-pointer that got wedged between the rim and the backboard for a jump ball, causing one of the Warriors’ announcer to take a swipe at Ball.
“I would not expect this from Klay Thompson at all … I would expect from that young man named Ball who plays for the Lakers. I’m serious! I’m watching the game last night and he had about eight of those. Oh my gosh, they’re not even close.”
Ball is averaging nine points, 6.9 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game, but the only thing that’s going to stop this steady stream of hating is for him to begin living up to the hype.
