Brandon Armstrong, better known as by his Twitter handle of @BdotAdot5, has become famous over the last several years for his spot-on impressions of NBA stars and their playing styles (He does a mean Kobe Bryant impersonation).
Armstrong released his latest video Monday night, parodying Lonzo Ball’s often seemingly-emotionless demeanor, and he pretty much nailed it:

A good man can admit when he’s been been gotten, and Lonzo enjoyed the ribbing:
August 8, 2017
I'm weak lol— Lonzo Ball (@ZO2_) August 8, 2017
But did he REALLY “laugh his ass off?” Did the video really make him “weak?” If Armstrong’s video is actually accurate (and it is), then Ball’s actual reaction was probably a light chuckle or small smile followed by the acronym his basketball-robot brain thought humans would use when they found humor in something.
Either that or Ball laughs more in private than he does in front of the cameras. One of the two.
