Magic Johnson gave his support to LaVar Ball, and some of things he has done. Magic gave his thoughts on LaVar Ball to ESPN Radio’s Afternoons with Marcellus and Kelvin :
The Kardashians, we didn’t say the mom was bad, and she made them a lot of money, right? She bragged on her daughters. I think it’s the same here. He’s just saying, hey, my son is great, and there’s nothing bad with that. So, we’re not looking for LaVar to be a problem, if we’re blessed to have an opportunity to draft Lonzo. Again, we don’t know at this time if we’re going to do that or not, but I will say, you have to give the father a lot of credit for being in not just Lonzo’s life, but the other two sons as well. I’m happy that a father goes around and hey, says great things about his son. And also, two, it hasn’t bothered Lonzo, so that’s what we really have to look at.”
The more I hear Magic Johnson talk, the more I think Lonzo Ball won’t go past number two in the 2017 NBA Draft. However, maybe it’s a smoke screen. We’ll find out June 22.
