Lonzo Ball left in the dust after Brice Johnson spin move

Frederick Owens | 08 July, 2017, 09:14

"He has not played a lot of full-court basketball since that last NCAA game", Buechler said of the Bruins' loss to Kentucky in March. "That [should] be the worst game I have all week".

Ball didn't have a particularly great game, scoring only five points and dishing out five assists on a poor shooting night from the field and three-point range. With his family based in Los Angeles and a solid relationship already in place with Ball, the current Los Angeles Clippers guard would like to sign as a free agent with the Lakers if he were bought out of his contract by the Atlanta Hawks after an expected multi-team trade that is expected to send Danilo Gallinari to the Clippers. During halftime, LaVar was interviewed on ESPN's broadcast of the game. He had a very good night.

"'As far as training my boy, this is as far as I can take him, '" LaVar said he told Johnson.

Traditionally, the NBA Summer League is only reserved for first and second-year players, along with a select number of young talents from the NBA Development League, which recently re-branded to the NBA G-League. The Lakers dropped the first game in Ball's career, but don't worry it's just Summer League, Laker Nation.

His potential weaknesses were on display as well - his unconventional shot was 1-of-11 from three, and as he tried to set up others the Clipper defense started trying to make Ball a scorer, and he didn't fill that role.

The Sixers and Lakers aren't scheduled to face off in Vegas, but let's hope there's a matchup in the Summer League playoffs next week.

He returned, found his way into the starting lineup and then in December was out again with a stress fracture in the left foot. McRoberts joined the Heat three years ago after enjoying a resurgent 2013-14 campaign with the Charlotte Bobcats .


Ball is the tranquil answer to his father's unrestrained rhetoric, a player who leads on the court and doesn't pass blame off it. You can get him better with the film time and the coaching.

Whether it was at UCLA or after his first professional game, Ball after defeats is one to offer a brutally honest assessment of his performance. But it was a hell of an atmosphere tonight for his first game.

"I'm going to show you what [Lonzo] did do", Lavar said, praising his son's box office power.

He added that Lonzo winning Rookie of the Year was a "done deal," adding "I've got the trophy already".

The Lakers and Clippers tip-off at 5:30 p.m.
