Brandon Ingram, Jordan Clarkson clown Kyle Kuzma on Instagram
The social media troll war between rookie teammates Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball continued on Friday night following the Los Angeles Lakers’ 108-103 win over the Chicago Bulls. In fact, forward Brandon Ingram and guard Jordan Clarkson also joined in the fun on both Instagram and Twitter.
This was sparked postgame in the Lakers’ locker room, as Clarkson and Ball can be heard clowning Kuzma over his flashy outfit. In a video posted by Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times on Friday night, Kuzma’s teammates apparently did not let him start his interview with reporters until he put his fur coat back on.
“Let me see that inside. I see that pink. I see the pink right there,” Clarkson said of Kuzma’s coat. “And it’s silk. All for the ladies. When they get right in there, they get real comfortable. That’s why he did it. You ain’t slick, man. You’re taking a page out of my book.”
Kyle Kuzma’s teammates wouldn’t let him start his interview until he put his coat on. Kuzma said later they are just jealous and Jordan Clarkson is the only one who could pull off that coat. pic.twitter.com/TXNNLAMJ4O

Ingram, Clarkson, and Lonzo’s 16-year-old brother in guard LaMelo Ball then took to Instagram to roast Kuzma some more over his outfit.
Once LaMelo commented again about how hilarious Ingram’s response was, Kuzma immediately fired back at Lonzo’s little brother in a pretty savage way.
In his Instagram story, Lonzo then roasted Kuzma’s outfit with a lengthy and hilarious description. Kuzma wasn’t having it and called out both Lonzo and LaMelo again.

You just know that the Lakers are close as a team when they’re able to joke around with each other like this. They do have plenty to smile about lately, as the Lakers (19-29) have won four straight games and eight of their last 10 contests.
