Lonzo Ball Makes Lakers Debut in Full Media Glare
Game time. Before the much-hyped No. 2 NBA draft pick stepped onto the Staples Center court for the first time last night, the 19-year-old already had his own sneaker line, emoji set and reality TV show, Ball in the Family. Now the former UCLA star, who’s reportedly charging $15,000 per interview, just has to live up to expectations. So far no dice: The Clippers defeated the Lakers 108-92 and Ball’s performance was unremarkable, with just three points, four assists and nine rebounds.
