Los Angeles Lakers reach the summer league semifinals


Lonzo Ball has donned Nike and Adidas brand shoes in recent summer league games with the Los Angeles Lakers, along with his own expensive ZO2 shoe.

It's kind of a unusual place the Balls are in right now. "They're running. They're making the plays - catching and shooting, scoring".

However, Mark Jackson, who is the former Golden State Warriors head coach and National Basketball Association player, wants to temper those expectations, especially the talk of him being possibly better than Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.

To match Westbrook's triple-double average, Ball is going to need to record another triple-double or more if the Lakers keep advancing in the single-elimination playoff format. Yes, it's just Summer League, but better to put up unprecedented numbers than not. "I can't wait to go out there and play him".

Ball - who is averaging 17.0 points - said on Thursday that he feels he finally has his wind back after not playing competitively over the previous four months. A night after a 36-point, eight-rebound, 11-assist performance, Ball had 16 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds against Cleveland. Most people saw Lonzo Ball leading the team with his excellent passing vision and leadership, but not many thought players like Alex Caruso, Vander Blue, and Kyle Kuzma would play this well.

The Lakers' second overall pick had two triple doubles in summer league, and heading into Saturday's game, he led summer league in steals and assists.

The Lakers also have exercised caution with other players.

And while his shot hasn't been falling (more on that later), Lonzo has shown a knack for drawing the defense's attention - primarily on drives to the cup - then having the wherewithal to feed a roller or kick to an open 3-point shooter.

Perhaps the bigger story is the piece of Ball's interview with Hubbarth that followed confirmation of tonight's game sneaker. I felt good. Kuz was catching everything, hitting his.
