Update from Ramona Shelburne via ESPN 710:

Quote:
"People on twitter were telling me to 'get off my lawn'... It's not about me, it's not my own opinion. I know there were people in the Lakers organization yesterday who were not happy about this and they spoke to both Lonzo and Kuzma and told them knock it off. And I know that Kuzma and Lonzo have spoken, and they were first like 'yeah it's cool, it's cool'."


Ramona said she received some messages from within the Lakers organization over Lonzo’s and Kuzma’s back and forth on social media and that they are upset.

Quote:
Ramona: "If you're the Lakers trying to recruit Paul George and LeBron James, is this what you want your 2 youngs stars to be doing 2 weeks before free agency?"

Host: "Are you hearing the Lakers are upset with this?"

Ramona: "Yeah!"

Ramona: "...I've gotten some text messages within the Lakers organization... doing a double take".

The back and forth between Lakers youngsters was fun when it was innocent. It’s crossed a line lately, and nobody’s happy about it

They need to tone it down, but I am not so sure this impacts FAs.

I think it’s more likely that they have to tell Lavar to slow the hot takes. Imo Lakers FO won’t put up with the Ball circus if Lonzo doesn’t come back strong in 2nd season.

This is probably another warning shot to the kids and Ball family specifically.

She is quite possibly the worst analyst we have. She always has non significant stories and is never correct about any rumors

They need to tone it down...bottomline. It's embarrassingly silly.

Their antics does have an impact on perception. I don't think it's a good look for the Laker brand. With that being said I don't think it's a super big deal.

You know what's annoying? The only person who has the right to decide whether or not something crosses the line is the one involved. "OOH MAH GAWD, YOU CROSSED DA LINE!". I don't know why but find the reaction to so much of this is annoying as F to me. Shut the gd hell up. My best friend and I roast each other WAY more than this non-sense. Now how this looks to potential FA's is another matter.

I would...no FO wants to move the guy they drafted #2 for any reason beyond getting a star in return....and especially how much Magic wrapped his own reputation/legacy as a FO guy in Lonzo's success or failure.

Magic could make a strong point that we are serious about winning and dont put up with any BS...and at the same time dump Deng.

Magic could make a strong point bu trading Dlo then Ball an off season later. Dump Deng, upgrade talent and make a strong point that we dont put up with BS.


You gonna trade Kuz too since you don't put up with any BS?

I continue to be impressed by people's ability to blame things on him.

Not necessarily. Magic was likely already annoyed with the whole Lavar thing, but now he might be like enough is enough.

It's summarizing. The fact is, she's heard Lakers are upset with Lonzo/Kuzma. Anyway link to the pod is on top for everyone to listen.

She said that it's made people inside and out of the organization do a "double take". What she said really wasn't all that strongly worded. It was her opinion that it's a bad look (which I agree with) mixed in with her saying that people in the organization have taken notice. That's about it.

Plus you have to listen to her tone when she's answering. IMO her take wasnt as bold as the title.

This stuff doesn't exactly make it easier for the FO in their attempt to convince LeBron to play with young guys.
