Lonzo Ball will miss the Summer League championship game Monday night due to a calf injury, but he’s already earned himself one big fan.
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is a die-hard Los Angeles Lakers fan and he’s already sold on the team’s new point guard. In fact, he is so sold on the 19-year-old he thinks he’ll be better than Jason Kidd.
TMZ posted this video of Flea extolling the virtues of Lonzo:
So he already considers Ball his favorite player of all-time? That’s high praise after a handful of Summer League games. But don’t think Flea is some guy who doesn’t understand basketball, the guy is a sports junkie who has been a fixture courtside at Lakers games for well over a decade.
Well it’s clear Lonzo has won over at least one very prominent Lakers fan.
