Once the Lakers landed the second overall pick in the draft, it seemed like a foregone conclusion Magic Johnson would select L.A. native Lonzo Ball to usher in a new era of Showtime.
On Thursday night, it all came to fruition and Ball became a Laker. The official call from Magic and Rob Pelinka to Lonzo informing him he’s a Laker was recorded, and it’s been released.
If this all pans out, Laker fans will look back at this as the call that started it all – unless Ball is a complete bust. This video is a LaVar Free Zone.
