The Los Angeles Lakers summer league team headed to Las Vegas Thursday afternoon, as the Lakers are set to begin action Friday evening against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, who was the No. 2 pick in the recent NBA Draft, recently set high goals for the Lakers this summer, as he said that they are going to win the whole thing.
It appears Ball may not be traveling with his teammates to Las Vegas though, as he is road tripping with some of the other top rookies from this draft class, Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum and Josh Jackson, via NBA on TNT:

The hilarious parody video from the movie The Hangover was released Thursday morning, and it also features rookie De’Aaron Fox, who Ball has a bit of a rivalry with dating back to when they played each other twice in college at UCLA and Kentucky.
Ball will have an opportunity to get revenge on Fox Monday night when they take on the Sacramento Kings in their third summer league game. Before that he will have a chance to take on Tatum and the Boston Celtics on Saturday night though.
Along with Ball the Lakers summer league team also features second-year players Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac and David Nwaba, and fellow rookies Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Thomas Bryant.
The Lakers are guaranteed at least five games in Las Vegas, although they could play more depending on how well they do.
