The Los Angeles Lakersand Phoenix Suns got into a small skirmish at the end of last night’s game. Three players were assessed technical fouls.Lonzo Ball was not one of them because he completely removed himself from the situation, walking away as the rest of his teammates got involved.

“It’s the NBA,” Ball said afterward. “People ain’t really going to fight, so I ain’t trying to get no tech.”

The 20-year-old rookie has struggled so far and there have been rumors he may lose his starting job. He is a lightning rod for criticism partly due to his father’s antics.
