He wanted no part of the scuffle.
On Friday night the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Phoenix Suns and things got chippy between the two teams.
An altercation broke out and players from both teams got into a scrap. Like most “fights” in the NBA nothing really happened, but the story here is Lonzo Ball walking away from the pile.
The young rookie wanted no part of the scuffle, and received his fair share of criticism for evading the fight.
He revealed why he walked away via Lakers beat writer Bill Oram.
Lonzo Ball was asked about staying out of the scrape between KCP and Ulis. “It’s the NBA,” he said. “People ain’t really gonna fight, so I ain’t trying to get no tech.”

Should Lonzo have inserted himself in the scuffle? Is this being made out to be a bigger deal than it actually is?
Whenever Lonzo Ball is involved, chances are the story will be blown out of proportion.
