Lonzo Ball denies losing shootout to Bow Wow
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.
