Letters: Lonzo Ball has made summer league hotter than ever

Letters: Lonzo Ball has made summer league hotter than ever

The super-hype buildup of Lonzo Ball has become totally out of proportion with the coverage of the rest of the Lakers. The team’s announcers barely mention anyone else when Lonzo’s on the court. TV cameras follow his every move. His statistics are endlessly over-analyzed while his teammates are treated like nothing more than a mere sideshow distraction. Meanwhile, LaVar Ball is holding court nearby discussing his favorite subject: himself.

Because none of the other Lakers have been seen or heard from since Lonzo joined the team, we do not have a clue as to what they think about playing second-fiddle to the entire Ball family.
