In his first summer league appearance, Lonzo Ball looked awful going 2-15 from the field, and finishing with just five points. On Saturday night, that changed. Ball messed around and had a triple-double. Ball finished with 11 pts, 11 asts, and 11 rebounds as the Lakers beat the Celtics in summer league play out in Las Vegas.
Here is how Twitter and LaVar Ball reacted:
LaVar Ball: Lonzo's triple-double "don't mean nothing" in a loss. "Point guards ain't judged on stats, they're judged on victories." pic.twitter.com/ltfm7SuuAO

People hating Lonzo Ball have made me like this kid. I've never even heard him talk, tell me why you hate him without using the word 'LaVar'

Game 1: Lonzo Ball was trash, he's a bust.
Game 2: Triple Double? Who cares it's only Summer League
