There has been a brewing feud between rookie point guards Lonzo Ball and De’Aaron Fox that has only grown larger with each passing week.

During an interview with Joe Mussatto of SEC Country, Los Angeles Lakers veteran forward Julius Randle weighed in on the situation.

“Obviously De’Aaron’s a great player,” Randle said. “I loved him through the whole season and the whole draft process, but my point guard is Lonzo. I’m excited to play with him, excited to build chemistry throughout the season. Obviously De’Aaron is gonna have a great career. He’s gonna be an excellent player.”

Randle clearly wants to stay out of this brewing rookie rivalry because it’s an issue that doesn’t involve him. It also doesn’t help that Fox also attended Kentucky, which would break a sort of an unspoken practice to bash another player that attended the same university.

There has been plenty of banter on both sides, with both Ball and Fox’s fathers making strong comments toward each other through the media. It once again become a topic of interest during the Las Vegas Summer League, with Ball being forced to miss the game against Fox and the Sacramento Kings due to a sore groin injury.

This is all sure to heat up this upcoming season, especially with the two landing in the Pacific division, meaning there will at least be four meetings between them each season. This could develop into one of the more interesting new rivalries in the league.
