On Saturday in Milwaukee, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball made history by becoming the youngest player in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double at 20 years and 15 days, which beat the previous record held by LeBron James at 20 years and 20 days.

"My dad did call me but didn't leave me much information", Lonzo Ball said.

LaVar Ball is in China with his wife, Tina, and two younger sons. Lonzo's brother LiAngelo, who is a freshman at UCLA, was arrested for shoplifting on a team trip to China. "We are handling it out here, so that is a good sign. they are out there, so they are taking care of him".


Lonzo Ball's rookie season has had its ups and downs already, but he put together an impressive game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

Ball finished with 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds. However, the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft continues to struggle with his shot and is shooting just a dismal 29.2 percent from the field.
