Should Lakers fans who’ve already shelled out money for BBB gear be worried about future savior Lonzo Ball looking “out of shape” during an individual workout? Probably not, but with less than weeks remaining until the NBA Draft it’s time to overreact to every little thing!
Per the LA Daily News’ Mark Medina, Lonzo’s conditioning shockingly isn’t where it needs to be in the middle of June:
Many qualities have made the Lakers impressed with Ball, including his leadership potential, passing and scoring. They are not impressed, however, with his level of conditioning.
Some observers of Ball’s workout last Wednesday thought he came in out of shape. Ball acknowledged that the “drills get you tired, so you got to stay focused.”
It’s also worth noting Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding reported last week that Lonzo “didn’t blow the Lakers away” in a meeting with team officials. That’s now two consecutive weeks of bad press for the second face of Big Baller Brand.
