Reggie Miller: Lonzo Ball to have 'huge bullseye' on his back

The former NBA legend also said Ball will help the Lakers make the playoffs.

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.”
