The same guy who has been running his mouth non stop about how UCLA is going to win the title and how his son is better than Steph Curry and how he is going to get a billion dollar sneaker deal for his kids, was forced to just shutup and eat his own words as he watched Lonzo put up a dismal performance in his final college game.
