Instead of talking his way around it or deflecting the question, LaVar insisted that it was the worst game that Lonzo has played in his life. Ball started at the point guard position for Los Angeles in their first #Nba Summer League game versus the Los Angeles Clippers.
The summer leagues are usually followed mostly by serious National Basketball Association die-hard fans and prominent scouts looking for a bargain player.
Bob Garcia IV is a sports journalist from Southern California.
The free agency period has just started, but so far, the offseason has gone as well as the Los Angeles Lakers hoped it would. Lastly, he was a reporter for the award-winning newspaper, The Daily Sundial, at California State University, Northridge.

Matching up primarily against free agent Kendall Marshall, a crafty veteran with four years of National Basketball Association experience who wasn't known for his quickness before suffering a torn ACL in 2015, Ball struggled to keep the opposing point guard in front of him. Even former Laker D'Angelo Russell showed up to watch his old team play, with shots of him watching going viral. Ultimately, time will tell if it's a net positive or negative.

If defenses can go under his pick-and-rolls, Ball has little chance of creating much offense for himself or teammates. This will probably be the worst game I have all week.
