Lonzo Ball Starts NBA Career on a Lakers Bad Bounce

The Los Angeles Lakers' second-overall pick managed just 3 points on 1-for-6 shooting to go along with 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 turnovers. After the Clippers easily dismantled rookie guard Lonzo Ball and the rival Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday evening, Beverley, who was extra aggressive against the former UCLA standout, could be heard shouting celebratory expletives in the direction of his opponents.

Ball, who was held out of the fourth quarter with the game out of hand, didn't have any problem with the way Beverley played him.

Win, lose or draw, LaVar Ball is going to have something to say about his son's Lonzo's performance, especially if its his first game in the National Basketball Association.

But if you thought that was going to keep LaVar Ball quiet, think again. "And your check still ain't going to go no higher than what it is". You can get him better with the film time and the coaching.

Patrick Beverley is a grinder. He played all a year ago and nobody said nothing about him.

Of the five starters from a season ago, Luol Deng and Julius Randle are the only two players still on the roster, but neither looks to be in the first-choice five for Walton. Because Lonzo's name is attached to it.

And it sounds like it ain't gonna get easier for Ball as the season moves along. Nobody is going to care about you.

"I just had to set the tone", Beverley told ESPN.

The elder Ball also claimed that Beverley, who the Rockets traded to the Clippers this summer as part of the deal that sent Chris Paul to Houston, tried to make eye contact with him while he was on the bench. At one point during the game's broadcast, he appears to be mouthing the word "b--" to Ball.

I think it's safe to say it lived up to the hype.

Johnson said of the conversation: "He said, 'Earvin, look, I'm not following my son".

After the game, Beverley talked with reporters about how Ball is gonna get a lot of players coming at him because of his dad's mouth. He has to be ready for that, and I let him know after the game. "What a better way to start than Mr. 94 Feet guarding him tonight". Lonzo Ball getting off to a slow start is not something new.

"They're going to come after him", Luke Walton said on Thursday.
