Johnson sees big things for Ball

The Lakers have missed the playoffs for four straight seasons, the longest postseason drought in franchise history, and posted the league's third-worst record last season at 26-56. "You don't play to lose". Bridges was probably watching the weak draft, realizing he could have been a top-10 pick, easily.

"I'm confident we'll get something", Pritchard told reporters in Indianapolis on Friday. And everybody kept saying what if? If I live on what ifs, I will never get to where I am at.

When asked how he would pull off this impressive feat, LaVar replied with a smile, "The Big Baller way". He committed two full seasons to IN before declaring for the NBA Draft. "Definitely was, and now I'm just focused on playing", Lonzo Ball said. But after most people went to bed, the Sixers also ended up with three other players from Thursday's draft.

"Somebody who has incredible basketball IQ, and somebody who can get their teammates to follow them.We fill like we have that person right here in Lonzo Ball".

Fultz says a crispy chicken sandwich for breakfast is his "good luck charm", and after a quick Google, he found out that Philadelphia has seven Chick-fil-a restaurants - if you count the one in the airport.

"What's incredible is that he's been, according to [Lonzo], his dad has been great".

Joel Embiid, a center likely to hit three-pointers.

Lonzo, though, downplayed whether the pressure will be greater because of his father's comments. The network also said streaming skyrocketed, with average minute streaming audience hitting 135,200 viewers, up 55% from 2016, and 1.153 million unique viewers soaring 107%. "I'm used to it. I'm not saying he's going to dominate the National Basketball Association, but he's definitely going to help your team win a lot of games".

Does he expect his father to keep a lower profile?? "And I'm just looking forward to going in there and giving it my all and hopefully changing the program around".

"When you look at the combination of Ben and Markelle", Brown said, "we will grow those young players, allow them to co-exist and let them grow with each other".

"He's his own man", Walton said. I'm sure [Lonzo will] fit into our culture. "I'm truly blessed to be able to play in my hometown, and I can't wait to get on the court".

The grandfather said, although he was not a boisterous promoter for LaVar as LaVar is for Lonzo, the signature Ball family characteristics come from him. I wouldn't have made that move if I didn't think I could use that money.

"But at the same time, I hope he just tears it up in Brooklyn". One of the things I like about him is, he played in a league that has recently produced Dario Saric, Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic. No other USA university player averaged 14 points with six rebounds and six assists a game as well.
