Lonzo Ball is under a microscope, thanks largely to his outspoken father.

As of now, it looks like Ball and the Lakers are heading to the Vegas Summer League final, which means another opportunity to generate buzz with his sneaker selection.

The Philadelphia 76ers Summer League squad will have an intriguing matchup on Wednesday night in the opening round of the Vegas Tournament.

Mike James scored 32 points for the Suns as the recently signed Euroleague combo guard knocked down 11 of 16 attempts. He missed eight of his 10 3-point attempts and was 6-of-20 from the field overall.

The Lakers now face their fourth game in five days at 5 p.m. His 12 assists were as many as the Cavaliers had as a team.

Lonzo Ball wore his own signature shoes, the $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2s, for the first two games of the Summer League.

Hopefully, you were not one of the doubters who wrote Lonzo Ball off after the first game, because whether he wears Kobe's Nikes, Harden's Adidas, or whatever it may be.

LeBron did, however, take a subtle jab at Ball's Big Baller Brand shoes via social media. Ball continually got to the rim in transition and off the pick-and-roll while hitting a pair of 3-poitners in the process. We want him to set the pace for our team, set the pace for the game. "Their pace in the first half kind of killed us, and they were getting easy layups in transition and getting to the rim at will".

It will be interesting to see which players on this summer league roster will be able to make their way into the Lakers rotation during the regular season. "So credit to them".

Nobody has taken advantage of this more than the self-described Randy Moss to Ball's Tom Brady: rookie forward Kyle Kuzma.

"It's making a statement to the brands of what they could have had with an open mind", Ball said via text message. "I'm just throwing it to him".

It appears that the Los Angeles Lakers are really considering bringing in a veteran to help mentor rookie point guard Lonzo Ball.

Thursday's winners advanced to the quarterfinal round on Saturday with Portland playing San Antonio, Miami facing Memphis, Dallas against Boston and the Lakers meeting Brooklyn.

In his next game, Ball bounced back with a triple-double, with 11 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.
