Lonzo and LaVar Ball have 'tremendous respect' for Lakers' Magic Johnson

Lonzo and LaVar Ball have 'tremendous respect' for Lakers' Magic Johnson

Ball's Dad decreed long ago and repeated not too long ago, that his son was born to play for the Lakers and other teams would be foolish to draft him.

Former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball is expected to work out for the Los Angeles Lakers on June 7, a source confirmed to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Lonzo Ball averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists in his one-and-done season at UCLA.

How it affects the Sixers: It's just one rumor but Lonzo Ball falling to No. 3 would allow the Sixers to draft a high-upside player who I believe meshes perfectly with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

The results of Lonzo Ball's upcoming workout with the Los Angeles Lakers could reverberate through the entire sport for years to come.

Does it matter that Lonzo Ball won't work out against other top National Basketball Association prospects?

Ball has refused to work out for the Boston Celtics, the team which owns the No. 1 overall pick.

LaVar Ball, though, has had a major presence in the high school careers of his children, to the occasional chagrin of their coaches, and the Lakers, not to mention other National Basketball Association teams, would have reason to be concerned about bringing aboard him by drafting his son next month.

Will LaVar and his son Lonzo have a chance to recoup that $10 million or more from Nike, Adidas or Under Armour, or do they have a legit shot to net a lot more with Big Baller Brand? "After the Lakers thing goes down and the ideal scenario is going to unfold, the new deal, Nike (to) five years and $20 million".

"He's not real vocal on the court", Alford said of Ball.

Maybe LaVar Ball really will settle down on making headlines about his eldest son once the Lakers draft him. Will his dad LaVar Ball cause problems in the franchise moving forward? "Instead of saying he now wants $1 billion, he now wants $3 billion".
