Lonzo Ball Has Made It Even More Clear He Wants To Join Lakers



With the Los Angeles Lakers grabbing the No.2 overall pick in this year’s draft on Tuesday night, it has lined up the strong possibility that UCLA’s Lonzo Ball could join the team. He has been long gunning to make his way to his hometown team. According to Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation, Ball is expected to take another measure to make sure that happens.

LaVar, as charismatic as ever, doesn’t have any doubts as to whether or not the Lakers will select Lonzo second overall on June 22.

“There’s no doubt in my mind whatsoever,” LaVar said. “I’m going to say it again, in English, speak it into existence. In Spanish, speak it into existence. In Africa, speak that mother[expletive] into existence.”

Along with being as confident as ever that the Lakers will draft Lonzo next month, LaVar added there’s only one team the former UCLA star is working out for. The Ball family isn’t interested in auditioning for any other teams.

“That’s all we working out for is the Lakers,” said LaVar. “Just the Lakers. There’s nobody else that we need to workout for.”

With Ball only holding a workout with the Lakers, it further signals that’s they are the only team that he wants to play for. It also tells the Boston Celtics, who hold the No.1 pick, that he has no interest in going there. This may put the organization in a precarious position leading up to the draft.

However, there have been a few indications that the Celtics are leaning toward taking Washington’s Markelle Fultz. This would pave the way for Ball to go the Lakers. All in all, things could get interesting over the next month.
