The Ball show came to Madison Square Garden last night for the first time.
Lonzo played pretty well. He had 17 points 8 rebounds and 6 assists as his dad cheered from the sidelines. But the Lakers came up short, losing to the Knicks 113-109 in OT.
Before the game, Lonzo came into the arena wearing an Illmatic sweatshirt with his face superimposed over Nas'. It's the next chapter in his trolling the New York legend that began when he knocked him at the expense of Migos and Future.
New Yorker and outspoken podcaster Michael Rapaport didn't much care for Lonzo's disrespect and called him out. Lonzo's 16-year old Lithuania-bound brother LaMelo came back at Rapaport on the Ball family's behalf. Check out their exchange.
