WWE Trying To Get Lavar Ball For Raw Appearance

Dreams became a reality for former UCLA Bruins star Lonzo Ball when he was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers at number two in the 2017 #NBA draft on Thursday night in Brooklyn.

Before he handed Ball his No. 2 jersey on Thursday in front of local and national media at the Lakers practice facility, Johnson faced his new protege and warned that he was about to put some pressure on him. There were subtle losers like the Denver Nuggets who I don't think drafting the best players available when they were in a position to all night. "I needed somebody also that can make the other players better, and also that players want to play with". It became clear they would draft a point guard after Russell was traded to the Brooklyn Nets along with center Timofey Mozgov for Stanford-alum and nine-year National Basketball Association center Brook Lopez Tuesday afternoon.

It's quite the promise, as the Lakers finished second-to-last in the West last season and a whole 15 games out of a playoff spot, but LaVar has come through with some big promises in the past, so I won't be the one to doubt him here. They all said, at different times, 'This guy, everybody's attracted to this guy.' Okay, that's all I needed to hear.

"What a tremendous day it is for the Lakers Nation, the Lakers organization, for Rob and I as well as the Buss Family to welcome the new face of the Lakers", Johnson said. "I talked to the principal. I said, 'Okay, we got our man now'". He was the second overall pick of the 2017 draft, reported the Los Angeles Times. Ball let it be known that he liked what he saw out of the Lakers.

Sometimes it seems like LaVar Ball is a character straight out of the WWE, carefully crafted after months of promo training in the Performance Center and a few rocky weeks on NXT.

Will Lavar Ball appear on WWE television? "I'm truly blessed to be able to play in my hometown, and I can't wait to get on the court".

It was a trade that caused an uproar among Lakers fans.

"Watching so much tape of him", Johnson said, "you see yourself". People want to play here again. "I think when this really came into focus for us was, we knew the talent was transcendent".
