The struggles of Lonzo Ball on the court have been very chronicled in the media, with many pundits saying his slump is due to off-the-court distractions or his poor field goal percentage is because of his unorthodox shot. If you ask Lonzo himself, it’s in his head.
Either way, that current slump momentarily stopped, as Zo recorded himself a triple double against the Milwaukee Bucks last night. The mark made him the youngest player in NBA history to record the accomplishment, only five days ahead of LeBron James. Ball did it the age of 20 years, 15 days while LeBron did it at 20 years, 20 days back in 2004.
Lonzo finished the game with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists but the Los Angeles Lakers took the loss on the road. So, what was Ball’s reaction?
“I don’t care.”
The Lakers stand at 5-8 and 12th in the Western Conference.
