Laker guard – and so called MC – Lonzo Ball just released a diss track going after his teammate and fellow rookie Kyle Kuzma, who is expected to respond with his own diss track to continue the lame ass NBA version of Drake and Pusha T.
Although the back and forth between Ball and Kuzma isn’t the end of the world, Colin thinks it’s could negatively impact Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka’s chances to sign their number one offseason target, LeBron James.
LeBron has historically had a low tolerance for playing with younger teammates, and he will be even less likely to want a join a team surrounded by immature nonsense after getting burnt by J.R. Smith’s bonehead play in The Finals. The idea of joining a team with two kids involved in a diss track battle could be a huge turn off.
The bottom line is that if the Lakers want to get into the LeBron James business, they’ll probably have to pull the plug on the Lonzo Ball experiment and ship him out of town to clear the deck. Based on an L.A. Times story – likely leaked by the Lakers – Magic won’t hesitate to pull the trigger.
Watch Colin explain why diss tracks could cause LeBron to diss the Lakers.
