LaVar Ball: Lonzo Ball will only work out for Lakers

The lucky Celtics leprechaun was on full display Tuesday night as Boston won the lottery landing the first overall draft pick in 2017. They will be followed by the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers.

Those assumptions might be premature, however. His speed is his best attribute, and he has proven that he can play on the biggest stages as he scored 39 points in the NCAA Tournament against Ball and UCLA.

Devins thoughts on receiving the 4th overall pick. However in 1997 the ping pong balls didn't fall the Celtics' way and the San Antonio Spurs got the top pick, which they used on Tim Duncan. They would have had to surrender their pick to the 76ers if they had not landed in the top three.

The Celtics will go from No. 1 seed to No. 1 pick after their 25 percent chance of winning came through Tuesday night.

Cunningham, who was off duty, was at the scene because he was working a second job as security for the recreation center. Mandl told Garmback and Loehmann to investigate a report of a "guy with a gun" scaring people outside the center.

The Celtics won by beating out the Lakers, giving the draft lottery an old NBA Finals feel.

Here's every team that entered the draft with the No. 1 pick and its record in the prior season, playoff teams with filled green bars. As now constructed, the Lakers have Russell, Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson as their prominent backcourt players - with Russell and Clarkson being two of their brightest prospects on the roster.

With their fourth top three pick in a row, Philadelphia can start to gel together the image of a formidable team.

The Suns will make selections at number four and number 32 with their own picks.

Golden State Warriors favoured over LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers
Does he think this Celtics team has what it takes to dethrone the King next season? "It's too stressful, and I'm not stressed right now".

The reaction was a positive one, although team representative Joel Embiid seemed upset to not get the first pick.

DraftExpress has guards Markelle Fultz and Ball as the top two picks in its most recent mock, while backcourt playmakers De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Dennis Smith Jr. are also in the top 10. Since basketball returned to the Queen City in 2004, the team has made 13 lottery picks and only one of those players ended up becoming an All-Star (Kemba Walker).

Meanwhile, the Lakers are in a prime spot for post-Kobe Bryant redemption as they could walk away with a top young talent or trade that pick along with Jordan Clarkson to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George.
