LaVar Ball's Prediction About the Lakers Was One of Many Funny Draft Night Moments

One lottery pick even forgot to mention the team that drafted him in his IG post.

Published June 23, 2017

The 2017 NBA Draft went as projected with Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball going No. 1 and 2 as the top two picks, respectively.

What wasn't predicted was all the funny moments from Draft night, led off by none other than LaVar Ball. After the Lakers drafted Lonzo, Mr. Ball immediately predicted that his son will lead the Lakers to the playoffs. Well, OK.

Here's that scene and all the funny moments that came out of Draft night.

  1. The No. 1 Draft Pick, Markelle Fultz, Had a Pre-Written IG And Posted It Without Naming The Squad That Drafted Him, The 76ers

    Oops. His bad. He did fix it later, though.

  2. The way that ESPN perfectly synced Lonzo Ball's reaction to match his dad LaVar's soundbite predicting that the Lakers will make the playoffs is too funny

    Do you agree with LaVar Ball?

    A post shared by espn (@espn) on

    Time to show and prove and back up what your old man said.

  3. This was totally uncalled for, though

    His son just made the league! Congratulate, Mr. Ball!

  4. Sixers' Joel Embiid Tweeted Teammate Ben Simmons, Begging Him To Dunk On Lonzo

    Real tears. Imagine if LaVar would run out on the court.

  5. After Michael Jordan's Charlotte Hornets drafted Malik Monk with the 11th Pick, The Confident Guard Said He Could Beat The GOAT 1-on-1

    We mean, Monk is 19 and MJ is 54. But nah, son. It ain't happening on Jordan's watch.

  6. And Twitter Was Savage For Digging Up This Old Tweet From Dennis Smith Jr., The Ninth Overall Pick In The Draft

    When Twitter fingers come back to haunt you. Another reason why the internet is undefeated.

  7. Was Lonzo Ball's brother, LaMelo, trying to channel Odell Beckham Jr.?

    Twitter got 'em!
