WATCH: Bulls’ Lonzo Ball rips Brandon Ingram, Pelicans with shocking scouting clip

Chicago Bulls star Lonzo Ball isn’t a fan of his former team’s offense as he shreds them to pieces in a training footage released by the team. Ball’s Bulls hosted the New Orleans Pelicans last week and prior to the game, it seems as though Ball prepared his team well which eventually resulted in a huge 128-112 win.

In a recent behind-the-scenes video released by the team, Ball was caught ripping the Pelicans’ offense, saying that his former team doesn’t like to share the rock.

“They don’t really want to pass the ball,” Ball explained to his teammates (via @lacedjoint). “BI [Brandon Ingram]  is trying to get to the mid-range and Nickel [Alexander-Walker] wants to get to the layup,”

That was a bit harsh, Lonzo.

Unfortunately, the truth hurts and the Bulls ended up out-assisting the Pelicans that game 32-26. Ball, who ended with a triple-double, led the team with a team-high of 11 dimes and 10 boards while adding 17 points as Chicago started their season off on the right foot. Since the win against the Pelicans, the Bulls have kept at it and have found themselves tied at the second spot of the East with a 6-2 record.

The Pelicans, on the other hand, have been struggling without Ball. Ingram, who’s dealing with a hip issue, has missed two consecutive games while superstar Zion Williamson still nurses a foot injury that has him still at least a few weeks away. New Orleans are now 1-7 to start the ’21-22 NBA season.
