The NBA is requiring Charlotte Hornets All-Star guard LaMelo Ball to cover a tattoo below his left ear that contains the initials “LF” which stands for his middle name LaFrance and his clothing brand. The NBA insists that the tattoo violates rules against exposing commercial logos on players’ bodies. Ball and the NBA have been in conversations for several weeks regarding the tattoo, and he began covering it up prior to Tuesday’s game to avoid fines. He is expected to continue covering it up for the next game as well. The league and Ball are expected to continue discussing short- and long-term resolutions to the issue.
