Whatever happened to the guy we took with the 2nd pick in last years (2017) draft?

 

He's been doing a Kwame Brown impersonation lately.  But, he'll be back.

LaVar is a sick SOB. Gotta Love it. It's like doing well one day in Vegas and you believe you'll win every time

welp

 

Lonzo Ball won’t play until after the All-Star break. Luke Walton said he practiced today with some contact, and that he “looked good,” but since there was a “little bit of discomfort,” they’re going to hold him out this week.

Damaged goods. No one will give anything significant for him. I can see the Lakers trading him towards the end or letting him walk. While Lonzo is talented, this is not a third rate organization. If there is a good deal for hin though I cant see why the FO wouldnt move him.

I agree. He either has to separate from his father professionally or this is going to become an ongoing issue. If he can't mature and become his own man then I say trade him and let some other organization deal with the Ball family.

Discussions like these are what keeps Lavar relevant or in the "talk."

 

<yawn>

 

Yep. 

 

Put a mic in front of him and YOU make him relevant.

 

Ignore him and he's like the homeless guy on the street constantly yelling about the "End of the World".

http://www.espn.com/...ous-father-team

 

 

There was a time when Lonzo Ball's success was fundamentally tied to the Lakers' success. Johnson had staked his own Hall of Fame reputation on drafting Lonzo Ball. On the day Lonzo was introduced as a Laker, Johnson pointed to the jerseys hanging from the rafters and said he expected his would be up there someday, too.

 

The Lakers' other new additions, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Thomas Bryant, were introduced on the dais that day, too. But Lonzo Ball was the main attraction. He was the one who was invited to throw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium later that night. He was the player Johnson challenged to break all of his Lakers records. And his father was the one who'd been granted a private audience with Lakers' ownership before the introductory news conference.

 

Everything in the Lakers universe seemed to hinge on Lonzo Ball and, by extension, whatever his dad said or did. But a funny thing happened after LaVar Ball told ESPN's Jeff Goodman that Walton had "lost the team" after nine straight losses -- the Lakers found themselves.

None of this is to suggest Lonzo Ball has wasted his shot with the Lakers or is no longer essential to their future. He is. But in the span of a month, he went from the center of the universe to one of several planets in the solar system.

This part made me chuckle . . .

 

But when fans started emailing and calling the Lakers complaining about Big Baller Brand deliveries or customer service, genuine concern started growing within the building.

Things like this bother me . . .

 

Take, for example, the $5.2 million house the family bought in Chino Hills, referred to as the "Ball Estate" in the Facebook Watch show "Ball in the Family." Property records show it was purchased by an LLC in August and transferred into Lonzo Ball's name in late December. That LLC's name?

 

Family Always Matters.

 

When asked whose house it was, Lonzo Ball said it was his dad's.

But property records show it in your name?

 

"Who knows?" Lonzo Ball said, walking away. "All I know is that they live there."

This won't end well...LOL.  Not sure what the laws are in Cali but 30 day notice for eviction seems about right.

 

Lonzo will stand on his own eventually.  I hope his Dad can respect his wishes but I doubt it.

 

Magic and the Lakers will be Ok regardless.  If the Front Office sees this as a problem, Lonzo will be gone as soon as this summer.  I'm a fan of his game but if he goes, he goes.  Lakers will still be my team.
