Ball Can Ball

Lonzo Ball might not be Magic Johnson like his dad LaVar Ball promised but he can straight up play.  He averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 assists, and 7.7 rebounds per game in the NBA Summer League and Monday Lonzo was named Summer League MVP.  Now, let's keep in mind that the Summer League isn't exactly up to the standard of play as a regular season NBA game but Ball always looked like the best player on the floor.  He didn't shoot extremely well but he made up for it with some of the dimes he was dishing out. 

Another story that took over the internet was what shoe Ball chose to wear for each game.  Instead of just wearing his dad's Big Baller Brand shoes for every game like most people thought he would, Ball wore signature shoes from Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Jordan and of course his own Big Baller Brand.  The Ball family understands that no publicity is bad publicity and this was just another genius PR move by Ball because it got everyone talking about him and his shoes.  Ball also created a bidding war so if Big Baller Brand dies (probably because it has only sold like 400 pairs of shoes and they take around 5 months to ship) he can just sign with one of the main shoe brands and make a bajillion dollars.

Ps. LaVar Ball might have a brighter future in the WWE than Lonzo does in the NBA.
