Lonzo Ball will only workout with the Lakers according to Lavar Ball
Lavar Ball has now come out with the news that Lonzo will not work out for any other teams in this upcoming NBA draft hoping to land only with the Lakers
Ball will participate in a predraft workout with the Lakers only, his father, LaVar, told Lakers Nation on Tuesday.
“That’s all we working out for is the Lakers,” LaVar Ball said. “Just the Lakers. There’s nobody else that we need to work out for.”
A source close to Lonzo Ball had told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that it’s been “clear from the start our desired destination is Los Angeles.”
Ball starred in his only season at nearby UCLA. He also played high school ball at Chino Hills.
LaVar Ball is convinced that adding his son will return the Lakers to the postseason, which they haven’t reached since 2012-13.
“The Lakers make the playoffs as soon as my boy gets there,” Ball told Lakers Nation.
In this life, there are some unique pleasures that we can all route for like this instance. The small chance that the Lakers don’t pick Lonzo Ball would already make my whole 2018 NBA season. The sheer ignorance and arrogance showed by Lavar Ball don’t make sense to my traditional sensibility. I don’t think I can ever remember a player’s dad being this arrogant. I would welcome if it were actual Lonzo saying things like this but the fact that he just stays quite makes me hate all of this.
If you are wondering the difference in between the first and second pick in this NBA draft is $2,202,900. Lonzo skipping out on the Celtics workout might cost him that much or maybe more because no team wants to deal with his crazy dad.
