Mostly due to the circus his father created in the months leading up to the NBA Draft, a lot of people have kept their eyes focused on Lonzo Ball this summer.
That’s why things that are molehills are made out to be mountains.
Like his three games playing for the Lakers in the Summer League (so far).
People really want lonzo ball to fail. The guy has never done anything boisterous or arrogant. That's crazy. He's a 19 year old kid.

After a subpar debut, Ball bounced back with an 11-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist Game 2, posting the first Summer League triple-double since 2008.

But his Game 3 performance had everyone talking.
…And it wasn’t just about his on-court performance. It was about his shoes.

No, not his $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2 signature shoes in Lakers’ colors…
