Rookie Lonzo Ball has a mixed preseason debut for LA Lakers

01 Octobre 2017

Following last night's loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Los Angeles Lakers lost their chance to stay one step ahead of the Clippers.

Ball - the NBA's second-overall draft pick - was clearly the reason for many in attendance, as fans hollered whenever he touched the ball in the opening minutes. "That's what you dream about as a kid".

"We are in this together", Lakers coach Luke Walton said about his team's decision to lock arms, via ESPN. "With him we've been working on, he's so unselfish that sometimes he has good shots for himself and he tries to get someone else a shot".

In a recent interview with XXL, Lonzo revealed he and the Ball family created a record label so they could release more projects.

"I've always had a chip on my shoulder because I've always been kind of the underdog throughout my entire career", Kuzma said. After dropping the song "Melo Ball 1", Lonzo returns with his latest song, "Zo2". "He's a competitor and he finds a way".

Kuzma has some muscle to him and brought down five rebounds, but he also got pushed out of position on a few occasions.

Oregon QB Herbert suffers broken left collarbone
FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that OR sophomore QB Justin Herbert (collarbone) is facing a recovery timetable of 4-6 weeks. OR hosts No. 16 Washington State, which is coming off a 30-27 victory over No. 5 USC on Friday night in Pullman on Saturday.

"I've got a vision for this year", LaVar said Thursday on the "Flagrant Two" podcast, according to Colin Ward-Henninger of CBS Sports. "That was a great moment, but at the end of the day, now I have a job to do".

"Kuzma was just Kuzma again", Walton told NBA.com.

The memo also reiterated that the National Basketball Association has a rule requiring that "players, coaches and trainers stand respectfully for the anthem" and that the league office will determine how to deal with any instance in which a player, coach or trainer doesn't stand.

"It's not so much 100 miles per hour like you'd think it is", Kuzma said. Lonzo looked like a rookie on defense, struggling over picks, not being able to handle Jeff Teague in space, and occasionally getting pushed around physically - Minnesota posted Jimmy Butler on him a couple of times, and Ball is not strong enough to stop him. Even in the early 2000's games, the player rivalry of Chris Webber and Mike Bibby for the Kings, and Shaq and Kobe for the Lakers made this rivalry competitive with some fantastic play from both duos of their respected teams. In college, these two players collided twice with Lonzo winning the first matchup in Lexington leading the UCLA Bruins to a 97-92 victory ending Kentucky's 42 game home winning streak and their number one ranking in the country.

Notes Nance grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, and Tyler Ennis had eight assists.
