LaVar Ball celebrates after Lonzo Ball selected by Lakers

As expected, the Los Angles Lakers selected Lonzo Ball as the second overall pick in this year's National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft.

If Lakers president of basketball operations and five-time NBA champion in Magic Johnson was ever able to foil his longtime frenemy and foil in now former Pacers president, Larry Bird in somehow finagling George from in and still keep the Lakers promising young core of Ball, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram and ADD George.

"Magic Johnson is one of the greatest players to ever play... he's the best point guard to ever play, so I can learn a lot of things from him".

Both Fultz and Ball hold their counterpart in high regard - but don't be quick to confuse respect with concession. "The Hardwood Classics came on, he'd call me in his room and we'd watch". "Right now, I'm hoping (Lonzo) leads us to a couple of summer league victories, and we'll take it from there". "I always play for my hometown", Lonzo said, which brings us to another one of those prized Southland products.

Lonzo Ball is the favorite in Vegas. The Lakers will seek more upgrades in free agency, though they will spend money with caution. "I'm not really anxious about all that". He doesn't need to change.

Supreme Court to hear Wisconsin gerrymander case
Schimel had asked the Supreme Court to delay the drawing of new boundaries until after the court rules on the merits of the case . Defenders of the Wisconsin plan argued that the election results it produced are similar to those under earlier court-drawn maps.

"It's just like James Worthy, Byron [Scott] and Coop (Michael Cooper) used to fight to get on the fast-break and into the lanes", Johnson said. I think everybody understands playing with somebody with Lonzo's talent will make them better and also get them easier baskets. "Just had a good feeling, and changed them five minutes before when they was on the clock".

It didn't take long for Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka to follow suit in a rather contradictory manner. If you use a sports analogy in another sport, you look at passers like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers that just have an ability to do something that is so special with where they put the ball and where they deliver it.

"There's clearly a gift, with what he's been blessed with". People want to play here again. "But my dad definitely had some tape of him. You see yourself. You see Jason Kidd". It will be the first Major League Baseball game he's attended.

On draft night, only minutes after his son had been drafted with the no. 2 overall pick, Lavar Ball continued his personal P.R. campaign and promised that his son would lead the Lakers to the playoffs in his first season on national television.

Embiid then asked Simmons to dunk on Lonzo so hard that LaVar runs on the court to save him. Lonzo does not follow his father's lead in every area-"I don't think I say anything too insane", he muses-but he embraced that bit of advice. "All I can do is go out there and play".
