LaVar Ball got his wish on Thursday night as the Lakers drafted Lonzo Ball with the second pick in the NBA Draft. Not even for a brief second did he break from his carnival barker act to treat this like a special moment. As he left the floor of the Barclays Center he was showered with boos from the assembled crowd. How long will it be until another parent is booed at the NBA Draft? I’m guessing decades.
A 76-year-old man died in the stands at Notre Dame.
Dan Stoddard’s teammates call him “Old Man Dan.”
Can’t do that.
It was a blowout but not everyone was in a good mood.
Painful way to lose.
Fighting to the whistle.
