LaVar just can't let Lonzo enjoy his National Basketball Association draft moment

We expect a Ball jersey hanging up there one day, all right? This would give Ball's Big Baller Brand more exposure.

But after a short lifetime spent preparing for this moment, Ball already knows exactly what's expected from a superstar on his favorite team. Fultz played just 25 games in college and said that it had been his dream to be the top pick at the National Basketball Association draft.

Ball is facing sky-high expectations, but he's also just one part of Johnson's plan to transform the Lakers into a championship contender after the worst four-season stretch in franchise history.

Best to captain Lions against Hurricanes
Wing George North and centre Jonathan Joseph will both start against the Hurricanes , while Jack Nowell is at full-back. But overall, they got the better of us in that area and we need to improve in that aspect.

The 10th selection was used by Sacramento to take Zach Collins before he was dealt to Portland for the draft rights to 15th pick Justin Jackson of North Carolina and No. 20 Harry Giles of Duke. Magic made the deal partly to clear the way for Ball, whose passing talent and leadership enraptured the Lakers' Hall of Fame point guard in a way that Russell never did.

"Everybody knows known for the crossover and they love him here and a chance to come here and he [too] was the No. 1 pick is kind of insane", Fultz said. "D'Angelo is an excellent player". "We want us all to grow old together".

The Los Angeles Lakers took UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick.

Confederations Cup: Chile set up Portugal semi-final, Germany to meet Mexico
The semi-finals, to be staged on 28 and 29 July, pits Portugal against Chile and Group B winners Germany with Mexico . Meanwhile, Chile joined group leaders Germany in the knock-out phase following a 1-1 draw with Australia .

In addition to the draft choices, the Sixers signed two undrafted free agents - James Blackmon, an IN shooting guard, and Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, according to CSNPhilly.

That said, an interaction between O'Neil/Crews and Ball has to happen if the WWE are able to get the leader of the "BBB" on the show. It's exciting times for the LA Lakers. "So I think it is perhaps ammunition at times to remind them of statements and to help them achieve their in-game goal". But if he's not extended by the start of this season, they could extend him an $8 million qualifying offer next offseason that would make him a restricted free agent.

"Just had a good feeling and changed them five minutes before when they was on the clock", said Lonzo. I think players around the National Basketball Association feel that as well and are going to be attracted to that energy here. LaVar screamed for a bit about how he called this not several months ago but as soon as his son was born, taking credit for "talking" his son onto the Lakers, and then assuring everyone that he won't be going anywhere until he does the same thing for younger brothers LiAngelo Ball and LaMelo Ball.
