LaVar Ball, father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, center, at halftime during a basketball game between the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers at the NBA Summer League at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Friday, July 7, 2017. "Oh well", LaVar Ball said. "He can't go but up".
Instead of talking his way around it or deflecting the question, LaVar insisted that it was the worst game that Lonzo has played in his life. "That's what I like about it". The Lakers dropped the first game in Ball's career, but don't worry it's just Summer League, Laker Nation. "Hopefully I keep getting better".
"The only way to go now is up". Whatever your thoughts, it's ridiculous how harshly he's been roasted for having a bad summer league game as a rookie.
Lakers games have always been well-attended here in Vegas, just a four-hour drive from Los Angeles. He looked uncomfortable in his Big Baller Brand sneakers all night, constantly adjusting his laces and looking down at his feet after bad plays. Ingram led the way for the Lakers from start to finish showing his growth this offseason. His first play of the game was an alley-oop tossed from Steph Curry's-three-point range to a cutting Ingram that had the entire arena roaring. But he also had five assists - passing was the silver lining of his performance - four rebounds, two steals and a block.
In the third quarter, Lonzo drilled his only 3-pointer and LaVar shouted his approval.
There wasn't much to cheer the rest of the game.
He was able to walk it off but after the injury scare Magic Johnson shut him down for the rest of the game.
He speaks quietly and with a straight face, nothing like the mega-watt smile Johnson brought to Hollywood from Michigan State.
"He's going to be a lot better", Ingram said. The rest of the games he plays this month won't alone determine his destiny either.Summer league is a learning experience, and he isn't doomed for a bad opening night.
