Lonzo Ball denies losing shootout to Bow Wow

Lonzo Ball

Lonzo Ball refuses to admit that Bow Wow is a bigger baller than he is.

In a video that circulated Tuesday on social media, the Los Angeles Lakers rookie appeared to lose a friendly shooting competition to the rapper-actor. Here is the clip (but be beware that there is some foul language in it):

Instead of accepting his L though, Ball took to Twitter in an attempt to set the record straight (and spun it into a plug for Big Baller Brand in the process).

The No. 2 overall pick was actually telling the truth too, as Bow Wow himself said afterwards that the contest was actually a best-of-three that Ball won.

As such, apologies are in order to everybody who was just here for the sheer hilarity of the Lakers’ prized rookie losing a literal basketball competition to the dude who played Calvin Cambridge in “Like Mike.” Maybe Bow Wow can settle the score in another shared realm of theirs though.

Ciara exes Future, Bow Wow on Falcons sideline ahead of game against Seahawks

The fates may be tempted at the Georgia Dome on Saturday.

Ahead of the Atlanta Falcons’ NFC divisional tilt against the Seattle Seahawks, a couple of famous faces were spotted on the team’s sideline: rappers Future and Bow Wow.

What do they have in common? They were, once upon a time, both involved with Ciara. The same Ciara who just so happens to be married to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

To be completely fair, Future is an Atlanta native and Bow Wow lives there, so it’s not as if trolling Wilson is the only reason they’re in the building. In their minds, it might not be a reason at all. That said, there’s some serious history here that’s hard to ignore. The guess here, though, is that Wilson won’t be bothered at all.

Michael Jordan forced Bow Wow to get rid of his Reebok shoes

michael-jordanMichael Jordan is one of the best businessmen in the basketball shoe and apparel game. That’s partly because of how passionate he is about his brand.

During a recent interview with Montreality, rapper Bow Wow elaborated on that passion.

Bow Wow was asked to share a Michael Jordan story, and he recalled the time he wore some Reebok Allen Iverson shoes to Jordan’s house.

“I’m actually real cool with his sons, Marcus and Jeffrey…I would say, we kinda grew up together,” said Bow Wow, via Ball Overall. “Being on tour, every time we came to Chicago, even at the age of like 15, they would come around and we just clicked.

“There’d be times I stayed over at the family, ya know, Mr. Jordan’s house…actually a funny story, I actually wore some Iversons to their house…and Michael Jordan woke us all up and was like ‘Whose is these?’…and I was like ‘they’re mine’…and I never saw My A.I.’s after that moment. I was in some Jordan’s going down to play some basketball.”

Classic MJ. Based on his competitive drive on the court, is there any surprise the legend is that strict about enforcing a shoe code in his home? Heck no. The only shocker is that he allows himself to go out in public looking like this.

You can watch Bow Wow tell the story in the video below:
