Lonzo Ball who was the #2 overall pick in last year's draft, walked on the court last night faster and stronger than he looked in his rookie season. We know that Lonzo makes headlines because of his father LaVar Ball, which opens up a lot of criciticsm by fans.
Well, Portland fans took every opportunity they could to troll Lonzo Ball last night. A shirt was see in Portland that read BBBeat LA which of course stands for Lonzo's Big Baller Brand, as well as signs that had Lonzo's head photoshopped on JR Smith's body.
Last night, was also the debut of LeBron James as a Los Angeles Laker who had a very strong start to the season putting in 26 points, 6 assists, and 12 rebounds up in Portland.
Portland is a place where the Lakers historically always struggled and LeBron knows that its going to take time to get the Lakers to where they want to be.
The Lakers will have their home opener in Houston on Saturday night where they will be tested with one of the best teams in the West.
