LaVar Ball has been preaching for months that his son, Lonzo, will be a future player for the Los Angeles Lakers. On Tuesday, LaVar’s wish may have come true as the Lakers not only kept their top three pick in the draft, they ended up with the #2 pick.
“To the Lakers baby! Here we come!”

“I told him he was going to the Lakers,” said a celebrating LaVar after watching the NBA Draft Lottery. “I’m speaking it to existence. Boston is going to take Markelle Fultz, he’s a good player. I think he fits best with Boston. You can’t bring him to LA, he ain’t ready for this. Only one person ready for this. It’s that Ball boy!”
The sports media is going to take the above quote and run with it all week.
“I must be a genius to paint it this way.” Added the Big Baller Brand CEO. “His number has always been number two and guess where he going, number two. TO THE LAKERS BABY! HERE WE COME!”
According to reports, Lonzo will skip the NBA combine, while his father says he will only let Lonzo work out with the Lakers.
As I wrote earlier, Markelle Fultz (WASH) seems to be the obvious first pick by the Celtics, leaving Lonzo for the Lakers.
