Celtics GM says Lonzo Ball rejected workout request ahead of NBA Draft

Earlier this month LaVar Ball said his son Lonzo would work out only for the Lakers. Turns out he wasn’t bluffing.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge appeared on the Toucher & Rich radio show Thursday and confirmed that Ball’s camp turned down a request to work out with the team. Boston, of course, has the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft next month and Ball is a potential selection, but Ainge admits the rejection doesn’t bode well for him.

It’s not ideal, Ainge said about how Ball’s rejection affects his chances with the Celtics.

Barry proceeded to tell Parker he didn’t know the game and should be ashamed of himself. It got personal from there, as Barry and Parker turned what was supposed to be a basketball question into a name-calling session between third-graders on the playground.

Barry is correct about the decision made by James. In attacking the basket, James faced likely Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green as well as help defender Kevin Durant at the rim. Stephen Curry rotated down to prevent an easy pass to Kevin Love, leaving Korver open in the corner. According to NBAsavant.com, Korver shot 59.6 percent from that spot during the 2016-17 season.

Barry could have easily torn down another silly Fox Sports hot take about LeBron by sticking to Xs and Os, but he fell into the embrace debate trap, and here we are.

For the best analysis on that specific play, just listen to James himself. This should (but won’t) silence any critics.
