Well played Lonzo, well played.
Foot Locker put together an ad that has guys at the top of this year’s NBA Draft board — De'Aaron Fox, Jason Tatum, Jonathan Issac — talk about their special times with their fathers, how they helped them get to the NBA.
Then Lonzo Ball jumps in.
First off, no way this happens without LaVar signing off on it on some level.
But the self-awareness and self-deprecation here by Lonzo will play well with fans and teams. Not that it really moves the needle. In the latest mock draft I did with Rob Dauster of NBC’s College Basketball Talk (coming to PBT Friday morning), we still have Ball going to the Lakers No. 2.
