Lonzo Ball Tumbling Down Lonzo Ball's Own Draft Board?

"You never know what's going to happen on draft night".

"And they weren't there when you were making sure that I always took care of business in the classroom and graduated from high school with a 4.0 GPA". The eldest Ball brother spoke about being gracious to his father for always being involved.

Tuesday and Thursday we did pull-ups.

Every day, no matter what, you'd take LiAngelo and LaMelo and me around the corner from our house in Chino to run up and down that hill in the heat before bringing us back home to do sit-ups.

With the potential uncertainty swirling (and damn it, I've nearly talked myself into weirdness happening just over the course of writing this blog), Ball now needs to keep selling himself to the team that looked like a sure thing to draft him. "There's still a lot of time, also, so I don't know that that's the best way to describe it".

I don't believe it-you shouldn't believe anything this time of year, since a whole lot of people with a whole lot of competing interests have stakes in putting bad information out there-but all the prospects have to wonder, to say nothing of the teams picking behind the Celtics. The Lakers also worked out Markelle Fultz, Josh Jackson and De'Aaron Fox. (I think Melo got all of the talking genes.) In fact, when I think about it, confidence is the most important thing that I inherited from you.

Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday between leading up to the draft, Rich Hofmann and I have examined a different potential scenario for the Sixers. "So regardless of what anyone else thinks of you, I'm just incredibly thankful to have you as my dad".

And I'm not talking about Fox's fit with the Sixers, either, but the modern National Basketball Association.

Ball's comments echoed those made by Magic Johnson, the Lakers president whose team is widely expected to make the player's dream come true by drafting him with the No. 2 pick.

Lonzo Ball's dream of getting drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers isn't looking as clear as it once did, which is now pushing the UCLA product towards talking to other lottery teams, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. Whoever the team will favor will be revealed on June 22 at the NBA Draft event.
