Lonzo Ball Details Alan Foster Situation With LeBron James On HBO’s ‘The Shop’

The 2018-19 season wasn’t really good for the Los Angeles Lakers, and it was actually a tough sophomore year for Lonzo Ball. He had problems on and off the court.

The Grade 3 ankle sprain he suffered in the game against the Houston Rockets on January 19 was a season-ending injury. That wasn’t the only problem Lonzo had. He is now suing former Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster and parted ways with agent Harrison Gaines.

Ball is fully in charge of his career, and he talked about the Foster situation with his teammate, LeBron James, on the latest episode of “The Shop.”

Foster was like a second dad to him, and the stealing wasn’t something Lonzo happened. He covered his Big Baller Brand tattoo, and shared the reasons he had to do so.

“I’ve known him since I was 12,” Ball said, describing the betrayal he went through. “… He was like my second dad.

“I bought my mom and dad a house, like, he had a room. … The way I feel about it is different, that’s why I covered the BBB [tattoo] up on my arm. When I saw that, I saw him, and that s–t just made me so, like, I was tight. When we looked at those transactions, the s–t didn’t start happening until my mom got sick. She took care of all the money s–t. So that’s what really hurt me; that s–t hurt me. I don’t even know what I would do if I seen him right now. I ain’t seen him. When that happened, everything just went off.”

Lonzo was really hurt by Foster, and he felt both betrayed and disappointed at the same time.

“Obviously, it hurt me just because of a lot of stuff I’ve been through with him,” Ball said on April 10. “A lot of decisions he made on my behalf and stuff. So it hurt. It hurt a lot.”

LeBron was right by his side the whole time. They talked about the case, and Lonzo said his teammate was really helpful and supportive duringt he process.
