  • LaVar Ball says son Lonzo is showing shoe brands 'what they could have had'

Prior to those remarks, Ball indicated that he didn't immediately notice James was in attendance at the game, but was apparently struck by the size of the future Hall of Famer.

Big Baller Brand shoes cost $495 and are set to ship November 24.

One day after switching up his sneakers to have his best game yet, Lonzo Ball has turned in another strong Summer League performance. Then Matt Thomas made a 3-pointer to push the Lakers' lead to 102-96 and the Mavericks could not convert on their next possession. You have to be ready for your opportunity and I've tried to do that. "Wore them tonight. It's good when you can wear whatever you want".

Ball was having an up-and-down start to his pro career in Las Vegas.

2 overall pick of this year's National Basketball Association draft, made it two triple-doubles in four summer games.

James told Goodman on Wednesday that he was in town to work out and mentor some of the young players on Cleveland's summer league team, visit with former Cavs assistant and current Sixers summer league coach Lloyd Pierce, and catch a glimpse of Lonzo Ball. "Obviously when you lose Lonzo, it's tough on the team, but I really want to give a lot of credit to those guys that came in and held on". The 76ers are slated as the 18-seed, while LA is the 15-seed. Dallas couldn't seem to establish any rhythm as the game began. 9-24 seeds. The top eight seeds earned byes into the second round Thursday.

Ball tried to jog it off in a back hallway in the third quarter, but he was hobbling a little bit and was shut down for the remainder of the game.

After losing all three games of the preliminary round, the 22nd-seeded Warriors avenged a loss to the Timberwolves in the sudden-death second overtime a night earlier and advanced to a second-round game against No. 6 Boston, which is 3-0 in Las Vegas. After resting a sore groin against the Sacramento Kings on July 10, he led LA to another victory and bludgeoned the Sixers with 36 points, 8 rebounds and 11 assists. Therefore, what three players could potentially play shooting guard for the Lakers after Caldwell-Pope?

The matchup with No. 5 overall pick De'Aaron Fox didn't last long.

However, they got it within 96-95 with two minutes to go, but LA went back up by three and Smith made just one of two free throws. Williams and Casey Prather each added 10 points for the Cavaliers (3-1).

Smith Jr. scored 21 points to lead the Mavericks. On Saturday they beat the Brooklyn Nets 115-106 in the summer league quarterfinals.
