Well, before the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night, LaVar Ball let it be known that the Los Angeles Lakers should draft his son, Lonzo Ball. The outspoken dad took it as far to say that the Lakers will draft Lonzo and that he was merely speaking it into existence.
That being said, the moment the Lakers drew the second overall pick in the Draft Lottery, Twitter exploded, imagining all the ways that Mr. Ball is reacting to it in excitement.
Here's a look at the Draft Lottery order and the hilarity that ensued.
After all the lobbying that LaVar Ball has done for the Los Angeles Lakers to select his son, Lonzo, he had to see this wave of reactions coming. And they're hilarious!
Yes, to the latter. How crazy would that be?
The Celtics earned the top pick via a trade with the Nets stemming from their 2013 blockbuster trade, which sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn. Since the Nets had the worst record in the league this season, they had the best chance of landing the No. 1 pick, which went to Boston via that trade from four years ago.
On top of the world.
After all, The Truth was a part of that 2013 trade that helped make the Celtics' No. 1 pick possible.
Sorry, Bk ... we're shaking our heads with you.
Hey, the third pick ain't too shabby.
It's a party in Sactown tonight.
When meaningless wins equal monumental losses?
At least the future is bright with Karl-Anthony Towns.
We guess Mark Cuban couldn't make it.
