Alford talks to Dan Patrick about LaVar and Lonzo

How Lakers-Celtics paved the way for the Cavs-Warriors

That would allow Lonzo to fall right into the lap of the Lakers, the team he grew up rooting for.

Well, a recent report claims that Mr. Ball's outlandish request cost his son Lonzo Ball a $10 million shoe deal that each of three aforementioned sneaker companies were prepared to offer him.

Ball also is expected to meet with the Lakers' coaching staff and front-office personnel. Even though the Celtics have possession of the No. 1 overall pick, Lonzo is said to have rejected an offer to work out for the team.

Earlier this month, Lakers President Magic Johnson, whose team has been strongly linked to Ball with the No. 2 pick, said that the ex-Bruin will "probably" enter the National Basketball Association with "a target on his back".

As a draft prospect, Lonzo seems to be the ideal fit for the Lakers' current roster.

While many concerns surrounding potential National Basketball Association prospects have to do with their game on the court, the questions surrounding potential top-3 overall pick Lonzo Ball are centered around his outspoken father, LaVar Ball. It has been no secret that the Lakers have their eyes on Ball. This should only help Ball's chances of landing with the Lakers.

West said that he wouldn't want to have a dad like LaVar Ball.

Later in the interview, LaVar said: "I never disrespect women". After the Lakers thing goes down and the opinion that he's now, the flawless scenario is going to unfold. Ainge said during an appearance on a radio show on 98.5 the Sports Hub that the Celtics have drafted players without working them out before.

LaVar is confident, however, that his son will be holding a Laker jersey come June 22. "In Africa, speak that (expletive) into existence".

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver expects LaVar Ball to "settle down" after his son, top 2017 draft prospect Lonzo Ball, gets selected.

It's certainly risky to leave that type of money on the table, but if we know one thing about LaVar Ball, it is that he's unconventional.
