Before we begin, we’ll start by mentioning that we at this site are fans of everything Lonzo Ball and the Big Baller Brand in general. However much the world loves to hate on Lavar Ball and his eccentric antics, one thing’s for sure, he definitely got everything right when it comes to his eldest son Lonzo. We strongly believe that this kid is destined for greatness in the world of the NBA. And him breaking this record, just one of many by the way, helps strengthen our school of thought.
At twenty years and fifteen days, Lonzo Ball became the youngest player to hit a triple-double in NBA history. It was unfortunate the Lakers lost this game to the Bucks but it’s a team with the greek freak Giannis Antetokounmpo in it, who by the way finished off with a cool 33 points, so there’s not much that young team could’ve done. Despite the defeat, Lonzo was outstanding. He finished the game with 23 boards, 13 assists, and 17 points. He bested Lebron James’ record by about four days.
A lot has been said about Lonzo’s shooting. Mostly negative. Yes, it may need some tweaking here and there but it hasn’t ever seemed to be a problem until he entered the NBA. He shot 41% outside the field and 55% inside in college. All he needed to do was wait and let the shot go in. And that it did in this game. He finished the game with 7 from 12 with 3 out of 5 of them being from 3 point range.
We believe Lonzo Ball has a lot more in store for us. Lakers and the whole general NBA fraternity just have to sit back and watch it play out. No doubt this guy is something special. Big up to Lonzo Ball and the Big Baller Brand.
