Lakers draft Lonzo Ball No.2 overall

Ball was asked by SportsCenter co-host Michael Smith about the recent rumors that four-time MVP James may leave Cleveland for Los Angeles when he hits free agency in 2018.

For months leading up to the draft, Ball had been courted by the Lakers.

"After five years when everybody gone, you gonna look at the Ball boys and be like, 'Oh my God, how he get all three of them in the league?'" Mr. Ball said, while being filmed on camera.

The Lakers traded former lottery pick D'Angelo Russell earlier this week, opening the door for Ball to start.

Look for the Lakers to continue to build around their young core led by forward Brandon Ingram and Ball while attempting to secure the services of forward Paul George through a possible sign and trade. Once LA had the no. 2 pick, the Ball family celebrated the inevitable move to the Lakers as destiny. Lonzo Ball has never attended a Lakers home game, but he rooted for Kobe Bryant on television and modeled his game after Magic Johnson, who took over the Lakers' basketball operations in February. His cool playmaking turned UCLA into the highest-scoring team in Division I, and he scored 14.6 points per game despite an unorthodox shot.
