LaVar Ball Reportedly Turned Down a $10 Million Shoe Deal for Lonzo

How Lakers-Celtics paved the way for the Cavs-Warriors

According to the latest rumors, the team might not draft Lonzo Ball as expected, and Los Angeles could trade one of the point guards that are already on their roster. Again, I think ultimately the issue is how much game does Lonzo have, how great an National Basketball Association player can he be. After FS1 co-host Kristine Leahy asked why Big Baller Brand - and its $495 sneakers - haven't been marketed to women, LaVar ordered Leahy to "stay in your lane" while refusing to look at her. Lonzo Ball did not lose $10 or $20 million because it was never his to begin with.

"It's odd to me that LaVar didn't at least fold some of his cards and go back to the shoe companies in earnest", Rovell said.

Ball did not attend the National Basketball Association combine so the workout will give the Lakers a chance to meet with him for the first time and see him in drills. ESPN.com passed along the response from the league's chief executive, who said there are no plans for a conversation between the two in the short term. He's an absolutely great kid, great teammate and truly cares about what his teammates are doing more so than himself. I think that was established in the recruiting process, that's all part of it. In addition to the workout, Shelbourne reports that Ball will meet with front office personnel and the coaching staff for the team. "And I think that's why this story is something that people want to read". All that really matters is how Lonzo performs on the court once he is drafted.

"For all the headlines surrounding Lonzo's father LaVar, know that every member of the Ball household has tremendous respect, tremendous reverence for Magic Johnson". Last week, Alford told reporters that Ball had "zero" presence with the Bruins.
