Yes, Ball dominated. Ironically, he made a huge statement on the court by wearing the Nike Kobe ADs and not Big Baller Brand.

Ball found himself as a major subject of conversation not for his play, but for his shoe selection.

Ball's father, LaVar Ball, is the founder and CEO of the sports apparel company Big Baller Brand, launched in 2016.

Lonzo Ball's bid for a third straight triple-double was short-circuited by a calf injury.

On Thursday, he made people go nuts once more, as he completely switched brands once again. In the first two games, he wore his own Big Baller Brand shoe. They jammed the arena daily, chanting not just for Ball, but other standout summer league Lakers.

Lonzo Ball has been the center of attention in the Las Vegas Summer League. Wednesday, the Sixers took on the Lakers without Markelle Fultz and fell to the 103-102.

While Ball has wowed executives, coaches and scouts in Vegas with his passing and court vision, the rookie point guard has struggled with his shot. He said he wore them as a tribute to former Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant. With no draft pick, there is no reason for the Lakers to shoot for their first playoff appearance in what will be five years. I felt good. Kuz was catching everything, hitting his.

Kuzma looks like just the kind of player that the Lakers' front office wanted, as he has out-hustled his fellow power forwards on fast-breaks and spaced the floor with his 3-point shooting. "It's good when you can wear whatever you want". Eric Griffin had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the No. 20 seed. It's interesting that, despite LaVar's comments about Curry, Under Armor still sent him some shoes. The Lakers also out-rebounded the Mavs in the half, 22-12, overshadowing Smith's 14 points through two quarters. "I learned a lot about the National Basketball Association game", Smith said after averaging 17.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.2 steals in the Mavs' six games. He would have been matched up against Kings rookie point guard De'Aaron Fox. The Mavericks trailed by 26 in the first half.

But then the Lakers, who had gone more than three minutes without scoring, got two free throws from Alex Caruso with 1:59 left and a 3-pointer from Matt Thomas with 1:42 remaining to subdue the threat.

Amusing how things work. the Lakers' last great point guard ushering in the era of the Lakers' next great point guard, as if it was meant to be.
