    He broke on live national television just last week that Michael Porter Jr. will be playing at Missouri this season.

    Let's be clear. No NBA team is going to sign the Ball brothers if they aren't capable of playing in the NBA. Lonzo isn't going to just stop playing either. Teams will sign him, because he's very good at what he does, the hell with his crappy brothers and LaVar. This is all a bunch of talk, and once again the masses are falling for it.

    That’s old news. Michael Porter said as much well over a week ago.

    Yeah, he said it after Dick Vitale scooped it out.

    Yep. I mean, let's say the Lakers are as dumb as Dicky V thinks and would end up releasing him. 1) He still gets paid, and 2) there would be 29 other teams lining up to sign him.

    Yeah that's silly, he's gonna be find but it will keep some teams away from him most likely if it gets any worse. He's on his rookie contract for a while so this is all pretty silly.

    Even if it keeps a few teams away, there is zero chance it keeps him out of the NBA.

    The only thing that would keep him out of the NBA is if team Ball determines it is more lucrative to have Lonzo play in Lithuania on the BBB circuit. They can make it just fine there I suppose, but they all know their key to success is having Lonzo "ball" out in the NBA. If he is just another guy and never amounts to any more than that, then BBB will not amount to much.

    As long as Lonzo is healthy and stands for the national anthem he should have a nice career.

    It's pretty insane when you break it down by game and he's not even that highly paid.

    Lakers are 8-3 in their last 11 games with Lonzo out.

    Not bad for a team with an overall .380 win percentage on the year.
