Failing to Ball Out

Lonzo Ball Makes Horrible Debut

Lonzo Ball Kicks of NBA Career in Horrific Fashion

Prematurely proclaimed the face of the Los Angeles Lakers by his father, Lonzo Ball played his first professional NBA game in Las Vegas Summer League and to put it lightly, it did not go as planned.

With the spotlight shining bright on the Lakers’ young point guard, Ball had a rough debut, in which he only registered five-points on an abysmal 2-of-15 from the field, which included 1-of-11 shooting from long range. In his 32-minutes of play in the Lakers 96-93 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Ball also dished out five assists, one of which was an alley-oop to Brandon Ingram who had a very impressive 26-point showing.

“I like the shots. A lot of them were open,” Ball said after the disappointing performance. “I just missed open shots.”

His father, LaVar was less than pleased with his son’s performance, but believed that it was an important part of Lonzo’s development.

“It’s better for him to start at the bottom than have all this success at the top and everybody expect it the whole season. He’s going to grow,” Lavar Ball said. “Imma show you what he did do. Look how many Laker fans out here. Changed the culture. That’s what it’s about. It ain’t about him being a superstar, it’s about him changing the culture. Instead of going to the movies, everybody come watch the Lakers and Big Baller Brand! I’m out of here.”

Whether you agree with LaVar or not, Lonzo Ball is only 19-years of age and there will be a learning curve that he will have to overcome.

The talented young point guard will have a chance to rebound today against the Boston Celtics.
