Lonzo Ball Shares Advice LaVar Gave Him After LiAngelo's Arrest in China

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball's record-breaking triple-double caused a stir, but the 20-year-old insisted: "I really don't care".

Ball, who was 20 years, 15 days old, finished with 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds as the Lakers lost their third straight game.

Ball reached the milestone with 11:29 remaining in the fourth quarter, with his rebound of a missed Bucks shot being the rookie's 10th of the night. In a win over the Portland Trailblazers on January 19, 2005, James accounted for 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

"I really don't care", Ball said. It don't really mean nothing. I just wanted to win tonight. We come out here in different time zones and play good teams night in and night out. He also added on 15 boards, 3 assists, a block, and a steal.

NOTES: Lakers G Lonzo Ball said he spoke to his father, LaVar Ball, who told the Lakers' rookie to focus on his own work and not worry about his brother, LiAngelo, who was arrested for shoplifting along with two UCLA teammates in China.
