Lakers great Magic Johnson picks successor in Lonzo Ball

  • It's a dream come true Lord to God' Lonzo Ball said following the announcement of his selection to the'76ers

Bryant declared for the NBA Draft with two years of eligibility remaining.

"That's the goal", the newest Laker said not to be outdone by his father.

The Lakers fulfilled the vision of Lonzo Ball's garrulous, provocative father, selecting the virtuoso passer from UCLA with the second overall pick.

"Just a transcendent talent", Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said, according to's Baxter Holmes. He likely never projects as an elite-level guard in the National Basketball Association, but the Lakers aren't asking that of him after selecting Ball much earlier it the draft. All professional feedback through reviews on iTunes are greatly appreciated! Lakers head coach Luke Walton also holds the belief that Ball could help transform the organization's fortunes through his passing ability. "It's insane. You can't really tell by my emotion, but I'm feeling good. He is a little undersized as a shooting guard at 6'6" and 204 pounds, but don't be surprised to see Hart push for minutes in a now thin Lakers backcourt.

I've figured this out: He's become a heel, a la the WWE (The Ringer's Rodger Sherman, as you see from his tweet, agrees).

Reaction to court's decision to hear redistricting case
It is a common practice for state legislatures to redraw voting districts to confer an advantage on the governing party. One factor the court weighs in making such decisions is which side seems to have a better chance of winning.

An NCAA champion and a consensus 2016-17 first team All-American, Hart comes to Los Angeles with an impressive resume.

Brooklyn doesn't appreciate LaVar Ball's attitude. Collectively, it seems like we hate to love him and love to hate him.

Don't like Lonzo Ball (or maybe it really has to do with his loud, attention-seeking dad LaVar)?

In his lone college season, Ball led the nation with 7.6 assists per game and earned first team All America honors. I kind of changed my jump shot up a little bit, made it more fluid and more comfortable.

Bryant played two seasons in Bloomington, averaging 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds a game while hitting nearly 60 percent of his shots.
