Ramona Shelburne: One note on Lonzo Ball’s workout for Lakers tomorrow — LaVar will be there as he’s part of Lonzo’s training team. – via Twitter ramonashelburne

What a pain in the behind

Lavar just doesn't get it

Training team??? This is the Rocky equivalent to Lavar:

Any chance the lakers are clearing way for Fox rather than Ball?  They allegedly wanted to deal 2 for 5 and 10 didnt they...

^ no chance they get fox. Ball has a much more well rounded game than fox

Fox shoots like 20% from 3. Its ugly

I'll take Fox over Ball.  Fox shot significantly better later in the college season.  He shot better in high school.  His shot looks better than Ball or Jackson.  I think he'll shoot around 33% after some development.  That's good enough with the rest of his skillset.  Ball's shot has significant questions besides being ugly.  He mostly shoots going left.  He doesn't drive or finish well in half court.  How well is he going to do when he doesn't have 4 shooters on court like he did at UCLA?  Of course Fox is significantly better defensively.

Lonzo looks really really good  >:(

Kinda jealous he forced his way to LA and we had no shot at all it's just SL but he looks pretty special

Actually, the scouts all comment on how unbalanced ball's game is - offense but no defense.

Also, please watch the ball-fox match ups last year in college. Fox simply owned ball both games.

I don't like Ball's game much, but he is unquestionably elite in transition.  Of course, Summer League is pretty much going to be dominated by transition-inclined guards.  He'll have his opportunities in the regular season, but if he wants to be great, he'll need to excel in the half-court.

I couldn't be happier we didn't pick him. Poor defender, terrible shooter, and a limited upside.

Lonzo "Big Rondo" Ball. We got a better prospect and a bonus pick to boot.

LaVar Ball's message to the Wizards: They better beware cause Lonzo ain't losing again. Not in the same week!http://bit.ly/2zvmKOp


I kind of feel bad for Lonzo.... Ridiculous pressure from an unrealistic father

He's lived with his dad all his life, I doubt it affects him very much.   He was my favorite player in college last year, and if he wasn't a Lakers I'd be rooting for him in the NBA.

He puts up stats but he is dead last in the nba in FG% and like someone else said his defense is really bad

The measure of a true star is when you can play particularly bad BUT your TEAM wants to win it for YOU...

That's Lonzo Ball.

That trash talk from Marcin Gortat got the Laker team wanting to win it for Lonzo. The Wiz are a quality team AND a playoff team.

Once the game slows down for him he'll be special. I can easily see him coming in 2nd in ROY behind Jayson.

Eh, I think if that happens to any other player on any other team they would do the same.

The Wizards played really bad, let's not discount that fact. I wouldnt use this game to say Lonzo IS a star (which you have said)

In 3 out of the last games, lonzo has  shot under 8% from 3. Lol

When wall was defending lonzo, lonzo put up 2 goose eggs- 0 pts and 0 assists.
