In a strange twist of fate, Lonzo Ball has become the least talked about brother in the Ball family of late. He can thank his two younger brothers (really, mostly, his dad) for that, as LiAngelo and LaMelo have signed with a Lithuanian basketball team to take their talents overseas.
While his brothers and dad prepare to head to Lithuania in January, Lonzo finds himself a bit out of the spotlight for the first time in nearly a year — ever since his dad launched the Lonzo NBA Draft hype machine. This has given the eldest Ball brother the opportunity to clear his mind and ask some tough questions.
At Lakers practice on Monday, the Star Wars theme song played over the speakers in the gym they were at and, after attempting to dance to it, Ball asked assistant coach Brian Shaw a very important question. Is it really a song, as it doesn’t have words?
Lonzo Ball is never afraid to share some strong opinions about music, most notably his thoughts on Nas and why current rap is better — which is a thing most 19 year olds probably believe and that’s OK. As for this take, it’s pretty spicy and shows that Lonzo is not a big Rush fan. Songs can, 100 percent, be instrumental, but Lonzo doesn’t have to buy into that if he doesn’t want to.
If Kyrie Irving can be super woke and question science and whether the Earth is round, then Lonzo Ball can have his own definitions of what a song is and whether it has to have words.
