Lonzo Ball has been taking heat for his shooting woes recently, but today he’s catching hell online for bailing on his Laker teammates during a fourth quarter scuffle with the Suns.
No punches were thrown in a very NBA “fight”, but Suns star Devin Booker was right in the middle of it. Ball chose to turn into the guy in the stairwell from Saving Private Ryan instead of fight and cruised to the bench. To each their own.
When asked about it after the game, Ball said:
“It’s the NBA, people ain’t really going to fight, so I ain’t trying to get no tech.”
What he’s saying may be true, but it’s hard to become the leader of a team if your guys don’t think you’ll jump in the foxhole with them. “You guys got this?”
