Point guards available as early picks in NBA draft

As Lonzo walked on stage to meet Commissioner Adam Silver and put on a purple Lakers hat, LaVar put on a gold and purple Big Baller Brand hat, the company he has started.

The Los Angeles Lakers are now, for all intents and purposes, in the driver's seat for the 2017 NBA Draft.

Fultz and Ball led a record-setting run of one-and-dones in the National Basketball Association draft, which received a jolt early in the first round when the Chicago Bulls traded Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves. "But any good player is going to have attention on him at all times, and I'm pretty used to it by now". Johnson said that Lonzo was their first choice, and predicted that the pick was the first of many moves to come to improve the Lakers. I know when I was a young player, I had a target on my back from my own teammates because of things my dad said, but it ended up working out.

One notable reason why the Lakers' pick did not come as a shock is because the team reportedly agreed to trade away D'Angelo Russell, who plays the same position as Ball, to the Brooklyn Nets a couple days ahead of Thursday's draft. He's always been there for him. "I want to stay home".

If nothing else, LaVar Ball will bring some entertaining sound bites to the National Basketball Association, but many fans are already getting exhausted of the schtick.

Lonzo Ball, right, poses for a photo with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver after being selected by the Los Angeles Lakers as the No. 2 overall pick during the NBA basketball draft, Thursday, June 22, 2017, in NY.

Pelinka rhapsodized about Ball's passing skills, comparing the teenager to Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Magic himself - and even Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

He led the nation in assists (7.7) while turning the Bruins into the highest-scoring team in Division I basketball.

NEW YORK (AP) - Markelle Fultz is still expected to be the No. 1 pick, though the destination has changed. No other United States college player averaged 14 points with six rebounds and six assists a game as well. "They said they love my dad and left it at that".

"I'm sure he'll fit into our culture", Walton said.
