Ball Family Helped Lakers Decide on Lonzo Ball

He should see playing time in a somewhat thin Lakers guard rotation that will also feature second overall pick Lonzo Ball, and his poise will be much-needed with a young group. "I'll have another hat on that say 'I told you so.'" Ball said.

Love him or hate him, you can not help but hate-watch the walking-talking BBB billboard of 24-7 marketing, hype and social media savvy in LaVar.

Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft may well have been a historic occasion for the league, an eruption of one-and-done players in perhaps the final year one-and-done players will exist.

"The way the point guards have evolved in the league I think I definitely fit that mold where I can score the ball, I can get people involved, I can lead the team, kind of that combo guard for sure".

Ball, a 6ft 6ins point guard from Anaheim who broke the UCLA record for most assists in a season, was selected by the Lakers with the second pick. The Lakers have not been to the playoffs in the last four years, the franchise's longest playoff drought ever. When I was a young player I had a target on my back from my own teammates because of things my dad said, but it ended up working out.

Twins draft California prep shortstop Royce Lewis at No. 1
With Falvey in the captain's chair for the first time during the first-year player draft, the first bold move was finally made. He's also 10-3 with 2.34 ERA and 140 Ks in 104 innings with a low- to mid-90s fastball and a consistently solid curve.

When asked if Ball's style of play will stay similar to what he showed while at UCLA, he left no room for concern. At best, you get a guy that falls a few spots because of a series of unimpressive pre-draft workouts or concerning physicals.

"I think it will make it more challenging, a little bit, but I think every top draft pick that comes in has a target on their back", Walton added.

It takes a special kind of person to famously go toe-to-toe-and win-a heated debate with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, it takes a rare breed such as LaVar who can be completely unapologetic in making such bold, brash and bombastic claims when talking about his own son being drafted by his hometown team, but it happened.

While he did average more minutes (22.6 vs. 28.1) and sported a higher usage rate (22.1 vs. 22.6) from his freshman to sophomore year which led to higher averages in points (11.9 vs. 12.6) and rebounds (5.8 vs. 6.6), his efficiency took a big hit.
