According to a report by The Athletic, disgraced Big Baller Brand co-founder, Alan Foster, and LaVar Ball had pushed second-year point guard Lonzo Ball to undergo unauthorized surgery on his injured left ankle.
Luckily Magic Johnson convinced him not to have the surgery.
Sources: Within final two months of Magic Johnson’s presidency of Lakers, the team prevented Lonzo Ball from undergoing surgery unauthorized by the organization. How that occurred and more, in @TheAthleticNBA column on Magic’s still-sudden resignation: https://t.co/Zb88RGlRnJ

Lonzo actually flew to Ohio in preparation of the surgery when he called Magic, who informed Ball the Lakers could void his contract if he went through with it without the team’s knowledge or consent.
It’s no wonder Magic quit.
You don’t often hear about an athlete going rogue on a surgery.
What a sh*t show.
