Lonzo Ball had his much anticipated workout with the Lakers today. Ball, who is expected to be drafted in the top 3 of the NBA Draft, addressed the media after the workout.
Ball feels the Lakers need a leader, and he feels he is the guy to do it. “They need a leader, they need a point guard, I feel like I can fill that hole,” Ball told the media.
Ball does not believe that his father LaVar Ball will be a distraction for him. “They said that about me in high school, they said that about me in college. I don’t think it will affect me.”
When asked if he is the best player in the draft, Ball responded: “I think I am.”
I don’t think the Lakers will pass on Ball at two, unless they trade the pick. The team needs a buzz, and Ball is the perfect player to do it! I would be shocked if the Lakers go in a different direction on draft day.
