The Los Angeles Lakers wrapped up practice Friday and head coach Luke Walton was feeling up for hitting the court for a little fun with two of his young pupils, and fellow coach Brian Shaw.

Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma took on their elders in a best of five around the world shooting competition... and lost. After going up 2-0. Where do we even begin?

Media gathered in Los Angeles were on the around-the-world beat Friday, getting the scoop from Kuzma himself on what went wrong. Shaw hit Kuz with some old school trash talk and it worked.

“[Shaw] kept calling me Short Dawg because I kept missing short, and I kept missing short every time he said it. Kept messing me up,” Kuzma told reporters, as captured by Shahan Ahmed of NBC Los Angeles.
