Here are the first vicious National Basketball Association shots at Lonzo and LaVar Ball

Does Hield's All-Rookie selection mean more good fortune for the Kings?

Does Hield's All-Rookie selection mean more good fortune for the Kings?

The choice that seemed inevitable is the one the Lakers made.

Shortly after Lonzo Ball was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the National Basketball Association draft, Joel Embiid took to Twitter to ask his teammate for a favor.

A point guard from the franchise's glorious past on Thursday drafted a homegrown teenager he hopes is the point guard who can lead them out of their current struggles and into a bright future.

I still think more than likely that the Lakers end up choosing their hometown star in Lonzo Ball, but they're definitely taking their time in making this selection.

So when do the 76ers play the Lakers?

Buying Whole Foods could be Amazon's Waterloo
John Mackey will remain as CEO of Whole Foods Market and Whole Foods Market's headquarters will stay in Austin, Texas . They are going to pay $42 per share in cash for Whole Foods , which is a 27% premium on the company's closing price.

Now, it may not be so safe that Ball is going to be a Laker.

There was a lot of speculation about Ball going to the Lakers and now it has happened. He will step in and become the team's starting point guard right away as the Lakers traded away guard D'Angelo Russell earlier this week. DEVELOPING: We will update this story as the draft continues. Will his outspoken father, LaVar, be able to promote the Big Baller Brand without creating a distraction that could undermine the Lakers? The Lakers brought in each of the four in for individual workouts, including Ball.

In his only year at UCLA, Ball scored 14.6 points per game, 7.6 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals.

The Lakers saw Johnson deliver on all of his promise when they drafted him No. 1 almost 38 years ago.
