Lonzo Ball's main problem during his short NBA career is that he hasn't been any good.
That's a problem he can solve: He is a 20-year old rookie who's playing the hardest position on the court.
Now he has another problem which may be harder to solve.
During the fourth quarter of the Lakers 116-107 loss to the Phoenix Suns, LA guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Suns guard Tyler Ulis started shoving each other.
Lonzo was on the court. But instead of participating in the brief melee -- like the other nine guys on the floor did -- LaVar's boy walked straight to the bench.
His explanation for why he didn't join in, as told to reporter Eric Pinkus, is going to raise eyebrows
“It’s the NBA. People ain’t gonna really fight, so I ain’t trying to get no tech,” Ball told Pinkus.
Do you think Lonzo's teammates are going to be able to get over his instinct to flee?
