Lakers overcome Ball's injury to beat Mavs

Lonzo Ball highlights Lakers summer league

He already has natural rivalries with players like Embiid in a league that showcases personalities and rivalries, and he's playing for the Lakers-the team with perhaps the most marketing potential when it's at its best. Yes, it's only Summer League, so those stats are largely meaningless, but the kid from Chino Hills has shown some undeniable traits that will immediately translate to the National Basketball Association. Try telling one of them that these games don't matter.

It appears that the Los Angeles Lakers are really considering bringing in a veteran to help mentor rookie point guard Lonzo Ball. Parker is under contract for another year and Ginobili is still reportedly mulling retirement. Lonzo had a good summer, but next year it will be somebody else. "He really was. Really happy for him to get the MVP".

Selden was in the starting lineup for a couple of games during the playoffs when Allen was hurt. So is his weight, a slender 190 pounds, which begs for more meat to withstand the grind of a long season and the battering he would get while trying to finish in the paint.

Patrick McCaw scored 26 points, Jordan Bell had another big defensive effort and the Warriors won their opening game of the tournament stage. Ball had quite the summer league, and gave Lakers fans plenty of highlights to get through the off-season.

"Here's the thing: He missed a lot of shots in the first few games". LaVar took over the publicity at the NBA Draft, he's been on WWE Raw, he's gotten into a fight with Joel Embiid, and he's also proven to be problematic following a sexist comment during a TV appearance.

Smith had a pair of 25-point games against the Kings and Suns. Without Kuzma, the Lakers would be nowhere the final four in the summer league.

Lonzo Ball's bid for a third straight triple-double was short-circuited by a calf injury. With their second pick, they nabbed the Summer League championship game MVP.

Who do you think will win the award? Ball had just five points on 2-of-15 shooting in that game and pundits everywhere were ready to write him off as a bust while blaming his father, LaVar, for setting him up for failure. He beat the Blazers on drives to the rim; he hit rainbow three-pointers with no one, and everyone, on him. After getting valuable playing time last year, look for the second year guard to improve in his efficiency and passing.

In his National Basketball Association debut last week at the ongoing summer league here in this blistering desert, wonder boy Lonzo Ball finished with an underwhelming triple-single - five points, four rebounds and five assists.

With Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap now former members of the Hawks, Collins could be an immediate impact player as a rookie.

The first-round pick ended the night with 30 points on 11-16 shooting from the field.
