Lonzo Ball's rookie season will be challenging enough as he gets acclimated to the NBA. But that's not all.
According to Reggie Miller, Ball will also have a "huge bullseye" on his back because of his controversial father, LaVar.
“Absolutely, I know if I was playing I would go after that kid,” Miller said on ESPN’s "Pardon the Interruption" (via Zagsblog.com). “Absolutely.
"His father, with his mouth, he’s going to have to cash a lot of checks for that. Absolutely, so yes. I know if I was in the league and I heard all this, ‘Oh, you’re better than Steph [Curry], you’re better than LeBron [James]. Yes, absolutely. Huge bullseye. Huge.”
That's coming from a fellow former UCLA Bruin.
Miller also said if Lonzo Ball is drafted by the Lakers at No. 2 overall, "they’re going to the playoffs.”
