NBA Summer League: Ball won't face Fox in hopeful marquee matchup

"At BBB, you can play in what you want", Lonzo Ball said on "SportsCenter" after the game. But he said that after one bad performance and a triple-double performance.

After the game, LeBron James was talking about how great Lonzo looked, saying he could "really pass it" and the King seemed impressed with the Los Angeles Lakers rookie.

Lonzo's last game was over the weekend with an 11 point, 11 board, 11 assist night giving him a triple-double after being very unimpressive in his debut game, only shooting the ball 2-of-15 from the floor.

Ball attributed the move to trying to channel the "Mamba mentality", which apparently worked as he dropped 36 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds and 5 steals in the game. "But we play at 7 p.m. (PT) tomorrow so hopefully I'm ready to go". Lonzo scored 16 points, dished 12 assists and grabbed ten rebounds.

The Lakers' odds haven't shifted in the past few weeks, with most betting lines in Las Vegas still putting the team at 100 to one odds to win the 2018 NBA Finals. The Lakers also out-rebounded the Mavs in the half, 22-12, overshadowing Smith's 14 points through two quarters. He's on pace for the most dimes in the event's history. The Los Angeles Lakers will be in good hands for years to come with Lonzo Ball leading the way.

Back in the 90's Spike Lee and Michael Jordan made a Nike commercial about Jordan's game and what made it so good.

Perhaps the bigger story is the piece of Ball's interview with Hubbarth that followed confirmation of tonight's game sneaker. The shoe, which was a gorgeous Laker purple, had to be one of the most expensive sneakers on the court. So, you know, playing him, it's going to be a lot of fun.

"I think he definitely has a chance [to make the NBA]". I also spent a full day and night with my family at Disney land, and wouldn't have survived without them. He played two games with the Nuggets last season. The point guard has worn a different pair of shoes in every game since.
