Lakers reportedly ask Lonzo, Kuzma to tone down roasts
The Los Angeles Lakers apparently have seen enough of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma’s public roasting of one another.
Throughout the year the two have engaged in a game where they’ve taken joking shots at each other over social media. But after a diss track released by Lonzo on Monday made some headlines and was taken the wrong way, the Lakers asked the two to end their public jabs.
ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Ohm Youngmisuk reported Wednesday that the team spoke to both players and that both players agreed to tone down the joking insults on social media.
One issue is that some people were unfamiliar with the ongoing insults battle between the players, so they thought there was genuine friction between them after the diss track. After the situation the Lakers had with D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young, they don’t want anything else going sideways on social media, which is understandable. And they especially want to present a strong front when recruiting LeBron James.
