You know the NBA is officially back when New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard Josh Hart is getting left hanging by his teammates. This time, it was point guard Lonzo Ball.
After the game, Hart took to Twitter and said he's so used to getting no love from his teammates that he didn't even realize Ball snubbed him.

This was a theme for Hart during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pelicans guard just can’t seem to get a proper high five from a teammate, but it makes for good comedy.
Ball, Hart and the Pelicans beat the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday in the team's first scrimmage game. The Pelicans are still without rookie Zion Williamson, who is away from the team tending to a family matter.
Before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March, Hart was averaging 10.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists in his first campaign with the Pelicans. The 25-year-old was also shooting 41.6 percent from the field, 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free-throw line.
