Kobe Bryant: Pressure on Lonzo Ball 'Inconsequential'

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball will have his first on-court encounter with four-time MVP LeBron James Thursday night in Cleveland, and after vanquishing the Atlanta Hawks, James said he was impressed with the way Ball has carried himself in the National Basketball Association so far. "The first half I thought he was just kind of going through it, trying to just cruise his way through it maybe". He totaled 27 points, 16 rebounds and ten assists in his two games against Cleveland as a rookie last season. I submit that when Michael Beasley is playing even reasonably well-in that humble subset of National Basketball Association games-he has one of the most telegenic offensive repertoires in the league. Earlier this month, LaVar Ball said that his son should play the entire fourth quarter of games. "That's all it is", he said, per the Los Angeles Times.

It all started with a deflection by Brandon Ingram, one that opened the door for a Lakers fast break.

LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, was asked by the team to curb his criticism of head coach Luke Walton.

Among the Sensex constituents, telecom giant Bharti Airtel secured podium finish, ratcheting up 6.08%. The broader market, midcap shares outsmarted the smallcap stocks with substantial gains.

James said he likes Lonzo Ball, though.

"The kid hasn't said anything", James told ESPN on Tuesday. "It's been everybody else".

This is just a guess, but I have a feeling this will not be the last time the Lakers executives feel the need to have a chat with LaVar Ball. "It's my first time playing him, should be a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to it". "I just want to win'". He entered as the Lakers' leading scorer and averaged 19.2 points in the previous 11 games, scoring in double digits in all of them. He was like, 'I don't care.

Bayonetta 3 revealed for Nintendo Switch
So there will be ample opportunity for new and old fans of the character to enjoy her games while waiting for the newest release. It showed a brief pre-rendered trailer (above), and also said that Bayonettas 1 and 2 are coming to Switch in February.

Ball, speaking to reporters in NY, shared a glowing opinion of James, whom he used to have a poster of in his childhood bedroom and owned both Miami Heat and Cavs jerseys of the guy he considered his favorite player. Defensively he was able to use his length on Lonzo a little bit and then if we did switch he had one play where he came in the middle I think he got his hand on the ball and it ended up being a 24-second clock.

The only player to make at least one in all 17 games? He probably can easily try and go for 50 every night, but he focuses on his team, tries to go for triple-doubles, gets guys involved. "Glory to God as, you know, I'm at the position I am today where people like LeBron recognize me".

Ball, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft, has "a lot of pressure on him", Walton said, according to the New York Times.

"Great Win Knicks!" he wrote on an Instagram post of the team's logo. "Obviously with how big he is in the social media world that exists now, everything that he does gets scrutinized by everybody".
