“I ain’t gonna lie, I use the Warriors!”
That’s the Lakers Lonzo Ball’s little bro, LaMelo Ball, talking about the team he uses in NBA2K after the Big Ballers AAU team forfeited a playoff game at the Double Pump Best of Summer Tournament on Saturday.
The forfeit happened because LaVar Ball pulled his players off the court after receiving a tech for arguing a foul call. What makes the move by LaVar so interesting is his team was actually winning (69-60) when he pulled LaMelo and the rest of the Big Ballers in front of the shocked crowd.
In the following video, you can hear LaVar saying, “It’s not about the referee. I’m not gonna have my guys playing hard, and they’re cheating. I don’t play that shit.”
But his anger towards the refs didn’t stop him from smiling and taking pics with fans and attendees after the game.
