People Lost Their Damn Minds When the Lakers Drafted Lonzo Ball

LaVar about to walk into practice like...

Published June 23, 2017

For months, LaVar Ball spoke the Los Angeles Lakers drafting his son Lonzo into existence … and it worked.

Last night, during the 2017 NBA Draft, the Lakers tabbed Lonzo with the second overall pick. And that confirmation was all people needed to absolutely lose their damn minds with these reactions.

  1. The Lakers got their man and Lonzo couldn’t have been more thrilled

    Dreams came true for the Chino Hills, California, product, who went to UCLA and then the Lakers.

  2. LaVar just knew this would happen

    The smile on his face says it all. 

  3. You know it took everything in LaVar's power not to show out like this after his son was drafted


  4. After LaVar successfully spoke his son being drafted by the Lakers into existence, they're about to stroll into practice like...

    That's the one!

  5. But if LaVar does pull up to the Lakers' practice facility, Magic Johnson might be like...

    Sorry, Mr. Ball.

  6. LaVar didn't waste time predicting that his son would help lead the Lakers to the playoffs, to which Lonzo was probably like...

    Better buckle up, Lonzo. You're going to have to cash all the checks written by your pop’s mouth.

  7. Someone couldn't resist slamming Lonzo with this hot take

    Oh, no. Not a Screech comparison.

  8. Whatever you think about it, it was a good Draft night for Big Baller Brand

    Photo of the night, indeed. Congrats to Lonzo, LaVar and the family.
