Lonzo Ball already has been scrutinized largely due to his dad LaVar Ball's many outrageous boasts.
It doesn't help that the projected top-three pick in next month's 2017 NBA Draft is being dragged for an old tweet.
People have been going in on Lonzo's "Top 5 All-Time" rappers' list, which he tweeted last May. His list in order? Lil Wayne, Future, DMX, 50 Cent and 2Pac. In defense of Lonzo, he is 19 and this was his personal list. Not to mention, all the rappers he mentioned had their undeniable moments in hip-hop, with Future most recently landing two No. 1 albums in back-to-back weeks for the first time in 61 years.
But try telling that to the internet, which dragged Lonzo to hell and back for his picks — especially taking issue with naming Future the second rhyme slinger on his Top 5 list.
When your old tweet comes back to haunt you.
Was Lonzo trolling?
That's harsh. We respect all of the artists on his list.
Would Lonzo have been better off choosing Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan and Dylan?
Hard to argue against Twitter here.
When those Twitter fingers have you down for the count.
