So what did Lonzo have to say about JAY-Z’s endorsement of Big Baller Brand? Not much. Hounded by a pesky TMZ reporter along an LA street, the Lakers' recruit stayed relatively tight lipped. When probed – with a rather long-drawn bow – about whether JAY-Z’s purchase of three pairs of ZO2s would prompt a Roc Nation x BBB colab, Lonzo responded, ‘I just play basketball, man – I don’t handle all that.’
Not typically a breed of reporter receptive to hints, the TMZ guy persists, taking it upon himself to educate Lonzo on JAY-Z's credentials. 'You're chatting to the wrong dude,' Lonzo reminds him. 'Haha, I know,' comes the reply, and without seeming to have registered anything, the reporter rewords his going-nowhere question and throws in a mention of a new Shaq diss track. We applaud Lonzo's polite disinterest.
