Fortnite’s Battle Royale game mode has taken the world by storm in only a few short months, dragging in everyone from you and me, to big-name celebrities, and the NBA is no exception, as Fortnite has become a major part of the culture within the NBA’s young prospect circles.
The likes of Karl-Anthony Towns, Ben Simmons, and Larry Nance Jr. have all indulged in the past time, including streaming the game online. But there’s probably no bigger fans of the game than the young guys on the Los Angeles Lakers roster.
Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart are two of the biggest offenders, with Hart even celebrating a made three late in the season with a Fortnite healing animation.
It seems the pair have now gotten fellow rookie Lonzo Ball on the hype train, as proven by Zo’s Instagram story early yesterday morning.
Lonzo filmed himself winning a game of Fortnite at 3:14 in the morning, and proceeded to go absolutely insane over the win, even waking up his pregnant girlfriend.
It won’t be long before we see Kevin Durant and LeBron James jumping on the Fortnite bandwagon — alright, that’s probably a little too far.
