Lonzo Ball just made NBA history as the youngest player in the league to score a triple-double!
Say what you want about the young L.A. Lakers player Lonzo Ball, but last night he made history by becoming the youngest player to score a triple-double at 20 years old and fifteen days. The former title belonged to Lebron James. Lonzo scored 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists in his game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Although the Lakers ended up with an eight-point loss to the Bucks, the final being 98-90 for the Bucks; Ball showed that his skills are impressive and he may be worth the 33.4 Million dollar contract he signed with the Lakers earlier this year. In addition to his skills on the court, Ball launched his ZO2 Apparel earlier this month at Complexcon.
The merchandise was limited, but his ZO2 Prime Remix sneakers are still available on Bigballerbrand.com for $495.00. Since before he was drafted by the Lakers, Lonzo has garnered some heavy criticism over his sneakers and his overall brand but it seems he is taking things in stride. The Lakers are having a slow start this season with a record of 5-8, but there is plenty of time for the team and Ball to put on their A-game and turn things around.
