It’s been nearly three months since the Los Angeles Lakers traded No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball in the blockbuster move for Anthony Davis and the 21-year-old point guard has been petty mum on how he feels about the situation, unlike his father, LaVar Ball, who had a cameras surrounding him literally minutes after the news broke.

However, that all changed on Thursday when Ball released his second mixtape “50&30,” which featured a song titled “Last Days,” in which Ball left no room for interpretation on how he felt about the trade:

You know I’m all about business

L.A. is going to regret their decision

Straight to the money, you know how we get it

We count up the cash and add up the digits

It has to be hard for a player to get traded just two years into his career, but it has to be especially hard for Ball, who grew up just 37 miles away from Staples Center in Chino Hills and forced his way to the Lakers during the pre-draft process. Of all the players that Los Angeles shipped to New Orleans, arguably no one wanted to spend their career with the Lakers more than Ball, who Magic Johnson once dubbed the new face of the franchise.

With a fully healthy offseason under his belt, Ball will have the opportunity to make the Lakers regret their decision in the same way that D’Angelo Russell did last season. While it’s highly unlikely that Ball will make an All-Star game like Russell did (especially in the Western Conference), it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Ball will have a career year playing under Alvin Gentry next season.

Hopefully Davis pans out for the Lakers both in the short and long-term so that no one regrets the trade in the future.
