Lonzo Ball will get picked high in the 2017 NBA draft. (We don’t know exactly where, but my money is still on the Lakers taking him No. 2.)

But his outspoken father, LaVar Ball, has become a prominent part of evaluating Lonzo.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver, via ESPN:

“I think his dad will invariably settle down once his son is drafted and a team has the appropriate discussions with him. So I’m not concerned about that,” Silver said.

Publicity-hungry LaVar has generated a ton of publicity by unapologetically and myopically saying outlandish things. His plan is working to perfection.

What makes anyone think he’ll stop after the draft?
