ESPN Films Presents Special Two-Night 30 for 30 Documentary Event “Celtics/Lakers: Best of Enemies”

It's been no secret that UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball hopes to stay in California and play for the Lakers.

He says the elder Ball turned down the deals and in the process eliminated the option of Lonzo making even more money if he were to be drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with with #2 pick in this month's NBA Draft.

There is also a chance he doesn't, and even if the Lakers have continuously said publicly they aren't anxious, they're surely deliberating over how much it matters that LaVar Ball can't seem, or doesn't want, to stay out of the news. To emphasize his point, he compared LaVar Ball to Kardashians momager, Kris Jenner, as reported by CBS Sports.

Speaking of which, that was the sound many observers thought they heard in a video Tuesday, in which LaVar Ball responded to a long-distance-shooting challenge from Ice Cube.
