Ball placed what appears to be tape over his Big Baller Brand logo tattoo while making his preseason debut against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
The Lakers confirmed to TMZ Sports that the NBA reached out to Ball to remind him of the league rule that prohibits players from "displaying any commercial logos or corporate insignia on their body or in their hair."
Ball's "BBB" tattoo can be seen in this photo posted on the Lakers subreddit:
Smith complained on Instagram last month after the league told him that he would be fined for every game he doesn't cover up his "Supreme" leg tattoo, writing, "You don't make people cover up Jordan logos, Nike checks, or anything else. But because it's me it's a problem all of a sudden."
