Magic has high hopes for No. 1 draft pick Ball

26 Juin 2017

"I'm a very optimistic person, but I don't look that far into the future", Walton said at the team's practice facility, where a group of season-ticket holders and sponsors gathered for a draft party.

During his opening remarks, Johnson challenged the 19-year-old: "There's [sic] some jerseys hanging on that wall". LiAngelo, is set to play at UCLA this upcoming season, while LaMelo is right behind him, all apart of the Big Baller Brand.

"It's insane", said the 6-foot-6 point guard on getting to play for Lakers legend Magic Johnson, now the Lakers' president. "D'Angelo is an excellent player".

"We want to start building a successful team, and you have to have a great leader".

Now, we're accustomed to seeing players compared to others in their respective sport, but to compare Lonzo's vision on the court to two of the best National Football League quarterbacks of all-time is a stretch. The press conference included statements from Magic Johnson, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, and Lonzo Ball. "I knew this was happenin' before it was happenin'!"'Lonzo Ball was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the No. 2 pick in this year's NBA Draft.

Wash. Democratic Senator To Lobby Colleagues In Opposition of Healthcare Plan
Heller, who is up for reelection in 2018, has expressed concerns about the way the measure addresses the future of Medicaid . A majority of GOP senators told the publication that they're not sure where they stand while four, including Sen.

With Mozgov's contract off the books and additional moves planned in the ensuing months, Johnson and Pelinka intend to clear enough cap room for the Lakers to add two free agents on maximum contracts next summer. "It's going to be a surprise for you [media] and me", Lonzo said.? The tide has turned. Ball's name was called by commissioner Adam Silver to be the latest member of a young Lakers core. "Come see me when he does, I'll have another hat on that says 'I told ya so'".

Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak had a similar plan several times in recent seasons, believing they could build another super-team around Kobe Bryant.

"It was a pleasure to watch", Lonzo said Thursday. "With Earvin's vision and his persona, I think the organization is really taking on that positive joy that he seems to live with every day".

In those days - I am about a year old - there was no way he could play in the National Basketball Association, though he finally did for the Portland Trailblazers, who drafted him in 1986. The Timberwolves went 31-51 in a disappointing first-year campaign under coach Tom Thibodeau and have the NBA's longest playoff drought, having not made the postseason since 2003-04.

When the Lakers were awarded the second overall pick at the draft lottery in May, the story that LaVar had written appeared to have come true, and when the Lakers picked Lonzo at the draft, his prediction finally became reality.
