LaVar Ball booed leaving NBA Draft, tosses hat to fans

Phoenix Suns

LaVar Ball raised his family in Chino Hills, a Los Angeles suburb 35 miles east of Staples Center.

The Lakers have not been to the playoffs in the last four years, the franchise's longest playoff drought ever. A frequent critic of his, Simmons said, "I hope my brother dunks on lonzo ball so hard next year that his daddy runs on the court to help him up", on Twitter. He was a highly effective player with the ball in his hands leading the nation with 7.7 assists per game while orchestrating the highest scoring offense in the country at 90.4 points per game.

The draft is the first time we got to see both of them in talent evaluation roles.

"So I'm looking to go in there and just learn from day one".

Magic Johnson revolutionized the point guard position during his career with the Los Angeles Lakers and on Thursday, in his new role of running the team, picked a player in his own image to lead them back to contention. Just everything he's going to teach me is going to be useful. If the Lakers plan on stretching their cap space to sign a few blockbuster free agents, their ability to complement those players with young, affordable talent is critical. Lonzo Ball has never attended a Lakers home game, but he rooted for Kobe Bryant on television and modeled his game after Magic Johnson, who took over the Lakers' basketball operations in February.

Lonzo, according to Walton, fits what the Lakers are trying to do offensively. "And all I can say is that we walked away from that really impressed with the family".

And while no one knows if LaVar Ball will tone down his talking, Pelinka said the Lakers won't ask him to do so. I kind of changed my jump shot up a little bit, made it more fluid and more comfortable.
