"I know I must be a genius to plan it this way."
Last night the cameras were rolling in LaVar Ball's household as the ping pong balls fell exactly as he had hoped in the NBA Draft Lottery, granting the Lakers the #2 pick in next month's draft and paving the way for his son Lonzo to be a Laker.
It's no secret that LaVar wants his son to stay home and play for the Lakers - he has even announced that Lonzo won't be working out for any teams other than the Lakers.
Last night, LaVar told CBS Los Angeles reporters inside his home,
"I told him he was going to go to the Lakers. I'm gonna speak it into existence," LaVar said.
"Boston's going to take their Markelle Fultz; he's a good player. I think he fits best with Boston. But you can't bring him to L.A., he ain't ready for this. Only one person's ready for this: It's that Ball boy."
"I know I must be a genius to plan it this way," LaVar added. "[Lonzo's] number has always been No. 2, and guess what he's going. No. 2…to the Lakers, baby! Here we come."
