The fans were able to witness the awkward interaction between Charlotte Hornets teammates LaMelo Ball and Bismack Biyombo.

Most netizens speculated that the reason why Biyombo shoved the rookie after the Hornets’ victory over the New Orleans Pelicans is because the latter was stat-padding since he was already closer to a triple-double.

The veteran big man explained his actions, however, saying that there just messing around.

“I heard about that video. We actually laughed about it,” Biyombo said.“He’s my little brother. We have fun.”

He also made it clear that there was nothing personal with Ball.

“We were talking like, ‘We’ve got to stop playing (around); we’re playing too much. Taking it a little too far.”
