In his rookie season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Lonzo Ball noticeably struggled with the physicality of the NBA, particularly when attacking the rim and fighting through screens. It’s for that reason Ball has made it his primary focus to pack on muscle this offseason. According to Ball’s teammate and fellow rookie Kyle Kuzma, the 20-year-old point guard has been “taking the weight room a lot more seriously this summer” and a picture posted by Ball on Tuesday backed that claim up. It could just be the angle, but Ball looks a lot bigger in this picture than he did at any point during his rookie season.

It’s been four days since Phil Mickelson’s stunning meltdown on the 13th hole of his US Open third round at Shinnecock Hills and on Wednesday, after some soul searching, Mickelson told The Post he’s “sorry” for what happened. “I know this should have come sooner, but it’s taken me a few days to calm down,” Mickelson said. “My anger and frustration got the best of me last weekend.

But she has been competing in pay-per-view events, and with the next one, Extreme Rules on July 15, only 27 days out from the suspension, her appearance at the event is in doubt.
