Walton said Ball could participate in a larger workload Tuesday if his sore knee responds to Monday's increased participation. "If they don't take Gelo this year, I bring back Gelo here (Prienai) to play with Melo for two years".

When all three Ball brothers make it to the Lakers, LaVar is convinced that they're going to win title after title for their hometown team.

While it's probably always best to ignore what comes out of LaVar's mouth, he said something on Monday that could have enormous consequences on not only the future of his son but also the Lakers franchise as a whole.

LaVar told Lithuanian basketball journalist Donatas Urbonas that if the Lakers don't bring on Gelo next year, he'll go back to Lithuania to play with LaMelo until Lonzo's rookie deal expires. Ball says that if the Lakers decide not to choose all three of his boys, then Lonzo will be walking as a free agent and will find another team who will take all three brothers. They don't play the same position. If you've been following Denise Garcia, Lonzo's girlfriend and reported baby mama, on Instagram, you've probably seen more than a few glimpses of Deuce at Zo's apartment in Marina del Rey. "Just sign [them] in free agency".

Just a couple of issues there, one being that Lonzo Ball will have to wait until after his fourth National Basketball Association season just to become a restricted free agent, and he is not set to fully hit the open market until after his fifth season. LaMelo, 16, is the youngest ball brother.

ESPN's Aaron Dodson provided a brief preview of the Los Angeles Lakers point guard performing Migos' "Bad and Boujee".

LaVar said his sons would not have to partake in an NBA Draft. But Lonzo plays best chemistry when he is with his brother. He described a team signing LiAngelo Ball similar to "completing a Royal Flush", even though a Royal Flush is made up of five cards.

The No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 rebounds and 7.1 assists this season.
