Lakers take exception to Wizards center Marcin Gortat tweeting John Wall 'will torture' Lonzo Ball

Brandon Ingram says Lonzo Ball and the Lakers did not take kindly to Marcin Gortat's tweet about how John Wall "will torture" Ball when the Wizards visit the Lakers on Wednesday night.

"Yeah of course we did," Ingram said when asked if he saw Gortat's tweet on Monday. "Everyone has social media, definitely saw it. The competitor in Lonzo, of course he didn't take it so well and with his teammates behind him, we didn't take it so well."

The Wizards center was responding to a video of LaVar Ball saying, "Washington is coming in Wednesday? They better beware because Lonzo ain't losing again [this week]."

The unflappable and low key Lonzo Ball said, "I don't pay no mind to it" when asked about what Gortat tweeted.

"I already know my teammates have my back," Ball added. "So we're going to go out there, we're going to play and hopefully get a win."

Ball having to react to something someone else is saying about him following a comment made by his father is nothing new for the Lakers point guard. He had said coming into the season that he felt there would be a target on his back because of all the attention surrounding him, mostly generated by the outspoken elder Ball.
