Man, you got to laugh at that. Because getting arrested for robbery in China is a good resume builder.

Maybe that's Lavar's strategy. Tank his son's stock so far that the Lakers would be the only team willing to take them. I mean if they're talented I'd take them...

LiAngelo, not in a heartbeat, LaMelo has potential, but none of these kids are elite defenders and I even question whether I want them at UCLA.

The problem is that everything Lavar has said will happen, has happened: Lakers get pick, Lakers get Lonzo, BBB gains major media traction, etc. For gods sake, he's crossed over to CNN discussing his beef with the only ego bigger than his, the PRESIDENT.

He needs to be smacked with some humble pie and this plan of his is going to be it. Gelo is not making the NBA and Melo is now an attractive option with all the drama.

Lakers will have no interest in anything more than Lonzo. It's already a circus. Imagine if he had 3 boys on the team. Might as well make him coach, GM, head of strength and conditioning, and president of bball.

Personally, I wish we could go back in time and not take the one Ball we did... not add 2 more.

The man's ability to speak things into existence is utterly amazing, there's a chance all 3 sons could be playing for the Lakers, South Bay.

Well serves most of these people right because they caused this and Magic trading Russell away to do this. So we needed a PG.

Hopefully Lavar can find a rec league that has a team called the Lakers. That is basically the only way the other 2 boys play for the Lakers.

It's not that he wants, he needs it. BBB, so far, is selling based on hype. If Lonzo becomes just a good (not great) player, LiAngelo doesn't make the NBA and LaMelo still takes some time get there, the hype fades away. Won't be able to pay the bills. If he has 2 stars and a role player in the team with most fans in the League, he will.

Just one question: forgetting about the shoplifting in China and being sacked from UCLA program, is LiAngelo NBA material? All I see is a decent shooter and he's quite strong for his age, allowing him to bully opponents around. Not enough.

The Ball kids should play in China

Every Chinese basketball team will go out of its way to make sure that they have no impact on the games and the Chinese fans will boo him every moment they are on the court

Assuming that they are even permitted to play in China

It would be a steal if we somehow ended up with lamelo. He had unlimited range and confident, exact opposite of lonzo. His body will hopefully fill out and get even taller.

A- No one in the FO should give a crap what LaVar wants

B- Lakers FO needs to evaluate all available talent for each
draft and pick the best available player, whoever that is

Shoplifting isnt robbery. Try reading a dictionary sometime.

The Lakers' G League (formerly D League) team is called the South Bay Lakers. Wouldn't be a stretch for all 3 to find some time working on their game there.

Not all dictionaries include violence / threat of violence in the definition anymore.
