After the Los Angeles Lakers selected Lonzo Ball second overall at the 2017 NBA Draft in Brooklyn, his father arrogantly declared his eldest son will lead the playoffs in his first year as a pro.

"This is insane", a calm Ball said in a phone interview.

The Lakers don't appear concerned by LaVar Ball, the voluble father with aspirations of building a global sports empire around his three talented sons.

LaVar Ball talked his son Lonzo becoming a Laker into existence, and he might just do the same about next year's playoffs.

LaVar Ball - a former player for American football team the London Monarchs - is Lonzo's father and has been his main representative and leading cheerleader.

The Los Angeles Lakers feel as if they've added a player in Lonzo Ball who can do for their team what Tom Brady did for the New England Patriots.

In their second trade, the Lakers traded the 28th pick to the Utah Jazz in exchange for the 30th and 42nd overall selections. Walton was asked about that statement and just laughed it off.

"To be a Pelican, and to play with fantastic guys like Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, it's going to be awesome", Jackson said. He is also an above-average passer. He was the conference's first player to average 14 points, six rebounds and seven assists per game since Kidd did it at California.

During his three years with the Swoops, Kuzma steadily improved as a shooter, but there's still reason to be skeptical about how much of that will translate to the National Basketball Association.
