Lakers Star Lonzo Ball Will Reportedly Become A Father

Lakers Star Lonzo Ball Will Reportedly Become A Father

Isaiah Thomas' agent, in an all-caps text message, made it clear that his client has no intention whatsoever of coming off the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers, where Lonzo Ball remains the starting point guard.

The 5-9 Thomas was a second-team All-NBA choice after averaging a career-high 28.9 points per game as a member of the Celtics last season.

The Lakers have been hot as of late even without Lonzo Ball and they don't want to mess around with their chemistry yet as they ride his streak of success.

Add in a home-heavy end of the season for the Lakers, where the team plays 14 of its final 25 games at STAPLES Center following the All-Star break, and the idea of a playoff berth, all of a sudden, does not sound entirely insane.

"We need a point guard", Magic Johnson, the Lakers' president of basketball operations, said this week. "I expect him to really help our team out and I expect him to be a positive influence on our team and help us win ballgames".

"He's day-to-day, (Ball) is".

Granted, if the team eventually decides that Thomas coming off the bench behind Ball is the better way to go, that may cause big problems for IT's camp.

The coach continued, "We don't need those distractions". (Brandon Ingram has) been doing a fabulous job but we've gotta get another guy in here.

"Our priority was finding a date that worked to make this an unforgettable experience for Isaiah and for our fans, and we're thrilled to be able to do so this season", Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen said in a news release. "I can't ask the players to do it if I am not going to take guys (out) when they are not playing that way". This is what I've been doing in terms of my regiment of when I work out.' All those things - we didn't have anybody to teach Lonzo anything.
