Joel Embiid tells Ben Simmons to Dunk Over Lonzo Ball

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 17:14

Lonzo Ball was drafted No. 2 in the National Basketball Association draft by the Los Angeles Lakers, but his father LaVar Ball did most of the talking, which was not a surprise to those who've followed the deft-shooting guard and his irrepressible dad.

The Lakers have struck out on big-name free agents for four straight offseasons, but Pelinka says he believes their outlook will be different, in part because of the presence of Earvin "Magic" Johnson, the Lakers' president of basketball operations. If Pelinka and Johnson have to surrender players to IN, they may gut their team enough to make the roster look less attractive for the other star player. "We feel like we have that person right here in Lonzo Ball", added Johnson, while challenging Ball to live up to the hype. Even before the draft, the 48-year-old has been making controversial comments that were criticized by many.

Lonzo Ball is the favorite in Vegas.

"I know what it looks like", Johnson said.

Lopez, 29, averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 blocks for the Nets last season. Johnson said that Ball has "greatness written all over him" and essentially gave the keys of the franchise to the teenager. "But if I can come halfway short of him, you know it's going to be good". "There's clearly a gift, with what he's been blessed with". With the WWE's Monday Night Raw heading out to the West Coast, next week's episode will emanate from Los Angeles.


Everything eventually comes back to the court, where Ball will either live up to the hype, or will make like most of those 90 other draft picks: no jersey on the wall, their number thrown back into the bin and recycled for the next generation. "Larry Nance on that lob - wow!" They offered their 27th and 28th picks and either forward Julius Randle or Jordan Clarkson. A strong showing at Summer League and in preseason will go a long way to convincing the coaching staff that he is ready to fulfill his potential and perhaps cut into Ivica Zubac's playing time.

Ball told nba.com/lakers: "It's insane".

"I'm going to put a little pressure on you right now", Johnson said to Lonzo Ball. "I'm coming here with a winning attitude". Ball then flew back to Los Angeles on Friday morning, where he arrived in time for his much- anticipated introductory news conference at the Toyota Center in El Segundo.
