John Wall, when asked about Lonzo and LaVar Ball over the weekend on our Wizards Tipoff podcast, said that Lonzo is a "nice kid" but the trash-talking his father does will be "taken personally" by other NBA players. He explained how Lonzo will "be targeted" because of those comments.
Wall stopped short of saying whether he himself had taken them personally. Well, now LaVar is going after his Wizards.
In a video posted by Ball Is Life on Monday, Ball calls out the Wizards, who they host on Wednesday at the Staples Center:
"Washington is coming in here Wednesday? They better beware because Lonzo ain't losing again, not in the same week."

Wizards center Marcin Gortat saw the video soon after it was posted and tweeted that Wall is going to "torture" Ball for 48 minutes:

The Wizards play the Nuggets on Monday night, but it's hard not to look ahead at Wizards-Lakers which just got even more interesting.
