Adam Silver thinks LaVar Ball will 'settle down' after Lonzo is drafted

Adam Silver thinks LaVar Ball will 'settle down' after Lonzo is drafted”

It's been no secret that UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball hopes to stay in California and play for the Lakers.

Among the numerous Lakers rumors that have been coming out of the woodwork since the franchise bagged the second overall pick in the June 22 National Basketball Association draft, the most talked about is the prospect of drafting former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball. For one, D'Angelo Russell, the Lakers' second overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft, has proven to be more adept at creating his own shots than in distributing the ball.

The most interesting take was when Alford commented on Ball's approach to winning certain games, "I can remember talking to my assistants on the bench and saying, "I don't think Lonzo is going to take a shot in this game".

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.

"Yes, I'm doing on this huge stage, but again my journey of love isn't any different just because my skin color is". Bryan Abasolo , the contestant who received Rachel's first impression rose during Monday night's premiere.

Ball doesn't have a workout scheduled with the Boston Celtics, who have the draft's first pick, but he will work out for the Lakers on June 7. Even though the Celtics have possession of the No. 1 overall pick, Lonzo is said to have rejected an offer to work out for the team.

It's certainly risky to leave that type of money on the table, but if we know one thing about LaVar Ball, it is that he's unconventional.

"Like, so the original deals that Nike, adidas, Under Armour were going to offer Lonzo Ball were five years, $10 million - $2 million per year".

"I really don't want to get into that".

The question remains - and won't be answered for years to come - whether it was a mistake for Lonzo Ball to pass up on the traditional shoe deal route to go independent. For the Lakers, Magic's presence could go a long way.
