Count Lonzo Ball as the latest member of the 2018-19 Lakers to cite injuries as having upended the season. Ball, who missed more games than any Laker last season, recently did a radio interview with Big Boy on Real 92.3 and was asked whether Los Angeles could have won the title last season. “I thought we had a good chance, honestly. Looking back on it, we were moving in the right direction and then ‘Bron went down, Rondo went down, I went down, B.I. went down, so it was just like … there was a point we were looking at the stands for people because we ain’t got no bodies.”
In the on-again, off-again world of Lonzo Ball and longtime girlfriend Denise Garcia, the latest news confirms the speculation of many over the summer months. During his radio appearance with Big Boy earlier this month, Lonzo Ball confirmed that he and Garcia have split roughly one year after doing the same last summer. “We’re not together, we do not live together, but we are good, though … Who knows what happens in the future? We may hate each other, but we’re right now we’re cool.”

What followed was an exchange already seen in a “Ball in the Family” trailer, with Lonzo getting real with LaVar about the brand and Foster: LONZO: The brand is demolished right now. LAVAR: That’s how you feel, “The brand is demolished.” LONZO: That’s how everybody feels. LAVAR: Who’s everybody? LONZO: The world. The consumers. LAVAR: The world? That’s the consumers you’ve talked to? LONZO: Yeah, it’s all messed up right now. LAVAR: Why is it messed up? Because one person did something bad? LONZO: He was the main person. LAVAR: He wasn’t the main person. LONZO: He ran everything.
Storyline: Big Baller Brand
LaVar grew agitated and said he wouldn’t change the name because the Triple Bs represented the three Ball brothers. LaVar then called Lonzo “damaged goods” for the past two years while trying to make the point that he wouldn’t change his son’s name based off his NBA career’s poor start. That was when Lonzo told LaVar that the brand was “demolished” — an exchange that was teased before the season aired.
LiAngelo entered the G League player pool last season and went unsigned, without a peep of interest from teams the entirety of the season. During a recent radio interview with Big Boy, Lonzo Ball gave some interesting thoughts on LiAngelo’s game and whether he could hang in the NBA. “I think he can make it. He’s 6-foot-6, he can shoot, he’s 240 pounds, so he’s strong enough to guard anybody. I mean, as long he gets healthy and works on his handle, he should be alright.”
