The Lakers were hoping D'Angelo Russell would emerge as their leader when they drafted him at No. 2 overall two years ago, but they experimented with him playing off the ball this past season. But after that game, basketball's most outspoken parent, LaVar Ball, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live with his son, Lonzo. I'm just about wrapping it up right now. He's theoretically a better fit for the Lakers than Ball or Fox, if only as a defensive upgrade to help cover up the deficiencies of others on that end of the floor. We've got the same terminology. Not only is Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox considered as one of the Kings' targets, but now there are rumors regarding their interest Washington's Markelle Fultz. "I felt like I attacked the workout pretty well today". Both players are scorers first who can play off the ball, essentially not true point guards, but talented enough to play the position.
Wilbur Ross heartened by lack of protestors in Saudi Arabia
On Saturday, Trump sealed a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia on his maiden foreign trip as the United States president. The TFTC now consists of Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and of course, the US and Saudi Arabia .
According to Mark Medina of the OC Register, Ball doesn't seem to be in shape during the workout. They are not impressed, however, with his level of conditioning. Clearly the front office isn't trying to single out Jackson by having another chance to watch him on the court, also wanting to extend the same opportunity to Ball before draft day arrives. On the other hand, the Lakers are still looking for someone to lead their young core of players.
FIFA President Says Qatar World Cup Not Under Threat
Human rights organisations, for example, Amnesty International have blamed the Gulf government for abusing outside workers. Construction is still underway to prepare Qatar for the 2022 World Cup (AFP).
Or, possibly, the Lakers really do prefer Jackson to Ball, L.A. gets Paul George next year and the purple and gold are back to their yearly playoff runs sooner than everybody thought. Brandon Ingram is a more natural three given his semi-ability to stretch the defense, so him playing at the four would make sense for the Lakers.
Edelman, Patriots reach deal on multi-year contract, Schefter reports
Though he has never been a Pro Bowler, Edelman has been massively important to the Patriots passing game these last few years. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a leader on the field and, when it comes to taking less money than he's worth, off it, too.
"I'm going to have to perform in games", Fox said.
