Scouting Lonzo Ball's nightmarish Lakers debut

  • LA Lakers rumors NBA Free agent Jamal Crawford to Lakers

The hype surrounding Lonzo Ball has led to Las Vegas Summer League history, with the Lakers game against the Celtics on Saturday (July 8) selling out. Leave it to his father to sum up the night with some of his trademark straight talk.

Ball, this year's No. 2 pick, waited for Ingram to spring himself free from his defender before serving up a pinpoint lob that Ingram threw down for an alley-oop slam, igniting a packed crowd of purple and gold-clad supporters.

They [Lakers] lost by three or four points, and he [Lonzo Ball] played his worst game ever.

In the below clip, former UNC star Brice Johnson spins baseline and blows by Ball, finishing with a thunderous dunk. Despite that, Ball still had a chance to put the Lakers ahead in the final minute of the fourth quarter but missed a layup then clanked a pair of 3-pointers that would have tied the game. At halftime, LaVar made his way down by the court and high-fived fans and took selfies.

Lonzo's dad, LaVar Ball, might make some easy friends in the Lakers locker room.

The UK price for the Tesla Model 3 has not yet been confirmed, but the base price in the U.S. will be $35,000 (about £27,000). There were also issues affecting deliveries, specifically a production shortage of battery, that was resolved in June.

"It's got nothing to do with him", LaVar Ball said.

In the overtime session, Ball missed shots, and the Clippers got a flawless two minutes from Sindarius Thornwell. He finished with five points, five assists, four rebounds and three turnovers.

At least Ingram impressed the Lakers onlookers, which included president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, GM Rob Pelinka, coach Luke Walton, associate head coach Brian Shaw, assistant Jesse Mermuys and players Larry Nance Jr. and Corey Brewer.

"Instead of [fans] going to the movies. everybody coming to watch the Lakers and Big Baller Brand". It's clear that the Lakers don't want to offer long-term deals that can jeopardize their salary-cap space for the 2018 offseason.

Lonzo Ball's Summer League debut didn't go the way Lakers fans were hoping, but Anthony Morrow didn't let the one outing change his opinion of the young point guard. But the rest of his game was decidedly understated, much like his personality. I don't think he growing no more. In addition, he also sees his son being the best rookie and winning hardware to go with that claim. The rest of the games he plays this month won't alone determine his destiny either.Summer league is a learning experience, and he isn't doomed for a bad opening night.
