Lonzo Ball bad in Lakers summer league debut

Lonzo Ball bad in Lakers summer league debut

And what was it like to play poorly in front of his family in his first National Basketball Association game, albeit in a summer league setting?

"It was just a cramp", Ingram said after the game.

Lonzo Ball went 2-for-15 in his Los Angeles Lakers debut, while his dad LaVar was doing interviews with the media. Young talent, even top draft selections, fighting each other in order to get a good tempo down as well as try new things to grow your game. The Clippers' guards regularly dared him to shoot, and yet he spent most of the night looking to pass first and second, tossing a lovely lob to 2016 No. 2 pick Brandon Ingram, finding his teammates with quick passes in transition and lasering cross-court passes to shooters.

Remember: Lonzo Ball did not look good in Australia previous year in UCLA's summer trip. In the extra period, however, Ball called his own number, attempting and missing two crucial three-pointers. His on-ball defense was also deficient, but it is always hard to find a rookie who can stay in front of his man at this stage. For all the other reasons summer league isn't necessarily predictive of National Basketball Association performance (lower quality of play and smaller size, limited practice time and organization, the importance of National Basketball Association experience for the veterans who have it), don't discount the importance of the small sample size. But it's better for him to start at the bottom than have all this success and expect it for the whole season. "Now he just has to go out and push him, and we will, too". There were several outlet passes made by Ball from 60-70 feet down court that should get Laker fans excited.

The Lakers-Celtics Summer League game will be televised on ESPN at 8:30 ET. His first points of the game came off of a sweet lob from rookie Lonzo Ball and he never looked back.

The Lakers are in desperate need of offensive help as they finished with the second worst record in the Western Conference after winning just 26 games last season. The most expensive seat (courtside) sells for $400, but a pair of VIP courtside tickets to the Saturday game sold for $5,150 on StubHub. "Instead of going to the movies, everybody is coming to watch the Lakers and Big Baller Brand". "I'm not insane. I know it's going to take time to build and we're building, but when we get the right people in here, we're going to win".
