Despite not being the top prospect according to most experts, no one was more talked about heading into the draft than Lonzo Ball. Landing with his hometown Los Angeles Lakers with the second overall pick was a dream come true, but also comes with a ton of expectations.
Ball has been dealing with those expectations, along with the extra star power that comes with being a Laker since being drafted. This has continued in Las Vegas as the Lakers have come there for Summer League.
Following the Lakers’ victory over the Sacramento Kings on Monday, Ball made an appearance on NBA TV’s ‘The Starters’ and played a game of Baller or Nah where the hosts would ask Ball the obvious question of where certain things lie on the scale of being Baller.
From wearing sunglasses indoors to sneaking snacks into the movie theater, to his father’s crazy entrance on Monday Night Raw a few weeks ago, find out what Lonzo thinks is Baller and what isn’t. Ball also gets to show a little more personality in the segment than a normal interview where he is extremely straight forward and to the point.
Now Ball will continue to focus on the rest of Summer League. He took part in a team workout on Tuesday, but his status for the Lakers’ Wednesday game against the Philadelphia 76ers in unknown.
