The crowd in Las Vegas to watch Ball and the Lakers on Sunday, ESPN reported, included the team's president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson, plus general manager Rob Pelinka and coach Luke Walton.

Wayne Selden led the Grizzlies with 13 points in 22 minutes. He's on pace for the most dimes in the event's history.

He is 51 years old, a Chino Hills resident and went to every single one of Lonzo Ball's high school games.

Ball filled up the stat sheet with 36 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds against Philadelphia. Teammate Wade Baldwin, the 2016 No. 17 overall pick, added 21 and hit the game-winning layup to take a 100-98 lead with 8.6 seconds remaining.

Hardly a fluke by anybody's standards, this kid has an outstanding and truly special ability passing the ball. As expected, Lonzo came back strong in his second game against the Celtics, racking up the first Summer League triple-double since 2008.

Ball deferred the credit to the other Lakers players.

"It's making a statement to the brands of what they could have had with an open mind", the patriarch said, via text to Darren Rovell of ESPN.

Atletico de Kolkata appoints Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham as coach
Atletico de Kolkata, the Kolkata-based outfit from the Indian Super League, have made a major breakthrough, by signing former Manchester United forward, Edward Paul "Teddy" Sheringham , as their new head coach.

Indeed, they have shown chemistry akin to that Patriots duo. In his last three games, he has played in a different brand of shoe, and the results have been solid. He was particularly Brady-esque on an 80-foot heave that punished the defense for not having any safety help (see rebounding section).

Ball wearing another brand could mean a number of things.

"Something like that", Ball said. "That's kind of big words, but he can really pass the ball".

Will Ball keep his regular season rotation strictly to the ZO2's?

"Very excited", Appelbaum said when asked how he felt when his favorite team drafted Ball, who is also from Chino Hills. Instead, Ball relished in James' presence.

More so, it has been a spark to the aforementioned fast-paced style that the Lakers plan to play with. "In that second half they missed a few, got a little bit exhausted, and we were able to capitalize". And despite a buzzer-beating jumper by Finney-Smith to close the half, the Mavericks limped into the intermission down 62-40.
