Family affair: Lakers grab Lonzo Ball with 2nd overall pick

23 June 2017

One of, if not the biggest trade, has been the trade between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers. But Lonzo has a lot to show and prove as a springboard for what the Ball brothers can do.

Not too long after the Los Angeles Lakers took Ball with the No. 2 overall pick in the National Basketball Association draft?- and?after his father, LaVar, declared to ESPN's Jeff Goodman that the Lakers would be playoff-bound in 2018 -?

In fact, Walton said he'll just be happy if Lonzo Ball can lead the Lakers to "a couple of Summer League victories" when he heard what the elder Ball said.

Is Ball the next Magic Johnson?

The Queen's Speech is expected to include legislation around reducing tenancy fees and energy prices, the Times has reported. After facing intense pressure to soften her Brexit plans since the election, May promised to consult widely.

In his only year at UCLA, Ball scored 14.6 points per game, 7.6 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals.

The L.A. native Ball gets his wish as he will continue to play in his hometown for the Lakers. The Lakers brought in each of the four in for individual workouts, including Ball.

The Lakers traded former lottery pick D'Angelo Russell earlier this week, opening the door for Ball to start.

Substantive criticism of his game include an unorthodox jump shot that may make it hard to score on the pro level, somewhat average defense and either an unwillingness or inability to consistently get to the rim.
