The Los Angeles Lakers selected Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick and LaVar Ball is already making waves in the media.
When being interviewed with ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Ball said he knew his son would be a Laker and that the Lakers were going to make the playoffs in Lonzo’s rookie season.
Obviously, LaVar Ball is all bluster. But his words are going to mean something eventually. The Los Angeles media is not as visceral as the New York media, but that might change now that the Big Baller Brand is about to enter Hollywood.
The front office’s efforts to contain LaVar Ball is not going to be easy. After this declaration, he may need a gag order.
