3? National Basketball Association draft intrigue begins after Fultz, Ball

The NBA schedule is not out yet, but the matchup already is looking heated.

After his son Lonzo was drafted No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, LaVar unsurprisingly made some more freaky comments that immediately set the internet abuzz.

A few seconds after the pick became official, ESPN analyst Jay Bilas said: "He's basically Jason Kidd".

Markkanen was asked about potentially playing with or replacing Porzingis, who team president Phil Jackson told MSG Network on Wednesday the Knicks are taking calls about after he left NY without attending his exit interview.

Los Angeles then traded the 28th overall pick to Utah for the 30th and 42nd picks, landing Villanova forward Josh Hart and IN center Thomas Bryant. Outspoken as always, LaVar claimed that he knew from "Zeus and Jesus" that his son would hear his name called for the L.A. Lakers as the second pick.

Lonzo Ball averaged 14.7 points and 7.6 assists per game in his lone season in college. The playmaking guard was considered one of the top two prospects in the latest #NBA Draft class along with Washington's Markelle Fultz. "I'm truly blessed to be able to play in my hometown, and I can't wait to get on the court". Nine of the first 10 selections played just one season of college ball. The Suns took Josh Jackson of Kansas, the Sacramento Kings took Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox at No. 5 and the run of freshmen continued when the Orlando Magic selected Jonathan Isaac.

Pelinka added, "Listen, there can be a sense of bravado with some of the media stuff, but when you get to see the heart of a person and how they treat others, I think that's when you really get to know them". The Suns could afford to move him because they had veteran point guard Steve Nash, but Rondo could have kept this team relevant for the next decade.

After being picked by Portland, Zach Collins and Angelica Payne, whom he is dating, are in an Empire State of mind, kissing in front of a Jay-Z section of a Nets mural. Things could heat up again in the coming days before free agency starts on July 1.
