Lonzo Ball Keeps Going After Markelle Fultz

Lonzo Ball Keeps Going After Markelle Fultz”

He's, unsurprisingly, not that great.

Fultz, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound point guard, averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds for Washington, tut the Huskies went just 9-22 and missed the tournament, just like last year's No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons.

That does not look like a guy who could beat Michael Jordan 1 on 1, even in his prime.

"Obviously, he's a great player, a great scorer- -I'm not taking that away from him", Ball said in the same interview.

Fultz responded with a simple pawn move in this media chess match by going on a quiet Twitter spree of liking tweets by various publications highlighting Ball's critical tweets. And we're so amusing, because we want people to say how we truly feel, then we rip people down when they say how they truly feel.

LaVar Ball expectedly received serious backlash after such a statement, but he has kept with the same attitude.

Is Lonzo a better prospect for the National Basketball Association than Markelle Fultz? "(Lonzo Ball's) His draft stock won't be harmed by his father's controversial style.

A few things every rational person should know: seem like a sane and likeable person, don't start problems with someone who is by all accounts a bigger and better success than you, and never, NEVER, bring someones' family into a public argument. I said, 'LaVar, why are you trying to embarrass me?' And he just kept walking and goes into the locker room. "And I'm like, 'LaVar, get out!'"

Not that LaVar Ball is likely to listen, but, if he is, the father of the Chicago Cubs' Kris Bryant has some sage advice: Hush.

LaVar tried to talk trash to Stephen A. about how he still has two other sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, who can win NCAA titles for him. I also won't write a knee-jerk reaction about De-Aaron Fox being better Lonzo (because he is not). Yeah, because how many fathers have a kid that good? In addition, he is one four players in the country, along with Hart, Mason III and Swanigan, to have secured consensus first-team All-America acclaim - first-team selections by the AP, Sporting News, the USBWA and the NABC. The Lakers already have D'Angelo Russell from a recent draft and have spent the a year ago looking for wing help.
