LiAngelo Ball wasn’t picked in last Thursday’s NBA Draft, which wasn’t a huge shock. He wasn’t even considered a rotation player for UCLA before he left the school after the fallout from a shoplifting incident during a team trip to China, and most scouts just flat out didn’t think he was good enough to ever play in the league.
His pre-draft workout at the IMG Academy probably didn’t help his cause either. A video of the workout, with LaVar in attendance, shows Gelo serving up tons of bricks during during a three-point shooting drill. It’s not awful if you’re at the Y, but when you want to play SHOOTING GUARD in the NB-freakin-A, it’s just not gonna cut it.
Not even LaVar can talk this into existence. The verdict is still out on Lonzo as an NBA player, but it’s safe to say the verdict is in on LiAngelo. It ain’t happening.
