Lonzo Ball would have ‘probably’ skipped UCLA if father’s proposed league had existed

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error HOUSTON — If Lonzo Ball had been given another option, he likely never would have worn the blue and gold of the UCLA Bruins.He would have never led the country in assists, become a first-team All-American or led the Bruins to a 31-5 record and the Sweet Sixteen. He never would have stepped foot on campus in Westwood.Ball scored 16 points while grabbing nine rebounds and dishing four assists in the Lakers’ surprising 122-116 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at Toyota Center.His headline-a-day family was back in the news earlier in the day because of plans announced by his father, LaVar Ball, to launch a professional basketball league for high school graduates who don’t want to go to college. If that league, which LaVar Ball told ESPN will pay players up to $10,000 a month, had existed a year ago, there is a good chance Lonzo would have played in it rather than go to college. Lonzo Ball said the idea has been percolating for a “couple months.”“We’re excited to see what happens going forward,” he said.Earlier this month his younger brother LiAngelo Ball left the basketball program at UCLA to play overseas with his 16-year-old brother LaMelo. The pair signed contracts with a professional team in Lithuania, and are expected to begin their career there early next month.NOT KOBEAmong the thousands of “Bryant” jerseys that were worn inside Staples Center on Monday night for the retirement of Kobe Bryant’s two numbers, one was different from all the rest.Most were either No. 8 jerseys from Kobe Bryant’s early days, or “24” from his two-title second stanza. There were even some No. 33 jerseys from Bryant’s high school days at Lower Merion (Pa.) sprinkled in.But the only No. 31 Bryant jersey in the building belonged to Lakers rookie center Thomas Bryant.“I didn’t think about it,” the other Bryant said. “It’s not something I think about. That’s Kobe Bryant. He had his legacy, I’m trying to build mine.”One Bryant played in 1,566 games and won five championships. The other is just hoping to get minutes.Bryant, the 42nd overall pick in June’s draft, has not appeared in a game for the Lakers and has spent most of his time in the G-League with the South Bay Lakers. There, he is averaging 22.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots.The former Indiana star has heard plenty of Bryant jokes from his teammates, but he said they have mostly died down.“People know that my last name is Bryant,” he said. “Kobe Bryant is an absolute, one of the best players of all time, if not the best Laker.“I’m trying to build my legacy, he has his. It’s a different Bryant here.”But imagine 20 years down the road.What if Thomas Bryant has done enough to be considered among the greatest Lakers and the team decides to retire his No. 31? It could get confusing with three numbers retired for “Bryant.”Will people even know which numbers belong to who?“Oh,” Thomas Bryant said. “They’ll know.”center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Personally, probably,” Lonzo Ball said. “If you know you’re going to be a pick (in the NBA Draft), go ahead and get to play versus the top guys in the country and move on with your life.”The Balls are remarkably skilled at creating buzz around their brand and it’s impossible to know whether the league, called the Junior Basketball Association, will ever get off the ground.But it already has a logo: A silhouette of Lonzo Ball mid-flight for a dunk against a gold and black background. It’s an image from Summer League, said the rookie, who joins Jerry West as former Lakers featured prominently in the logo of a professional basketball league.LaVar Ball told ESPN that the league would be funded by Big Baller Brand and would consist of 80 players on 10 teams that play in NBA arenas.“They announced it today,” he said. “They’ve been working on it for a while now. I wish them the best.”last_img read more
