"You can't hear about him unless he puts my boy's name in his mouth."
Lonzo Ball was unable to play when the Lakers took on De'Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings during the Summer League, which had the trolls shouting, "Lonzo is ducking De'Aaron Fox."
For the uninitiated, the last time Ball and Fox faced each other was back in March during the NCAA Tournament when Fox dropped 39 points against Balls Bruins as the Kentucky Wildcats advanced.
Lonzo has since returned to the court and led the Lakers to a Vegas Summer League title, while being named the Vegas SL MVP. And his father, LaVar, doesn't want to hear anything about his boy ducking De'Aaron Fox.
During an interview with Mark Willard and Chris Broussard on Fox Sports Radio, LaVar said,
"Duck De'Aaron Fox? Have you heard about De'Aaron Fox? Hell nah. You can't hear about him unless he puts my boy's name in his mouth. He been doing all this stuff and ain't nobody been talking about him. So he and his dad gotta link themselves to us to be relevant. De'Aaron Fox had a whole season and the only thing they talk about is 39 points against Zo. You don't put Zo in a sentence, nobody cares about him."
With Lonzo and De'Aaron playing in the same division there will be plenty of opportunities for them to settle the score on the court.
