    Is Ball the first professional helicopter parent?

    Of the three Ball brothers, Lonzo is the most likely to do well in the NBA. The key words there are “do well”, not shine brightly. Indeed, the biggest item the Ball kids are likely to be remembered for is the embarrassing and shameful encroachment of their father upon their professional paychecks, something they are too blinded to see coming.

    If we take Ball he can play the #1, Russell #2, Ingram #3, Randle #4, Zubac #5 that core will start to get really nice really soon. If we can flip russel and the #28 pick for Paul George then pull the trigger and let’s get back in the playoffs.

    Can you imagine what LA sports fans will have to put with if they draft Lonzo and the Lakers do great? Can you imagine the excuses when he flops? Having to read and listen to Levar & Son is not worth it. Give up the #2 for a proven player.

    Reggie Jackson: One of the biggest jerks and creeps ever. True story: He hit on my daughter while shopping with girl friends in San Diego. She was 16 he was 60.

    Lonzo needs to create his own sports brand called Kick Daddy Out (of his full-grown sons’ business affairs). This player is NOT the reincarnation of Earvin Johnson, and comes with father attached, so the Lakers are well advised to pass on the kid.
