Magic and the Ball family circus

The Kings rookie point guard was added to Friday's Rising Stars game in Los Angeles on the U.S. Team, replacing Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, who has missed 13 games with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

The Lakers are in a slightly different position, though, and the NBA's most glamorous franchise may be wishing that it never brought the Balls on board to begin with.

When LaVar Ball criticized Walton from Lithuania, sources say Johnson called an associate of the patriarch to admonish him.

That official also said the military assesses that some of the Russian contractors were killed in the United States counterstrike. US-led coalition in Syria killed more than 100 Syrian regime forces on Wednesday in response to an attack on one of its bases.

Though his oldest son, Lonzo, remains central to the Lakers' rebuilding efforts, LaVar's overbearing and outspoken persona has become as tiresome for the organization as it has for America, and the team has put several unorthodox measures in place to put the family patriarch in his place. I was good with Luke, I was good with Jeanie [Buss]. Keep doing it. Just make sure that you allow your son to grow and us to go through our lumps and our bruises like we're going through, and things are gonna work out.

The Lakers also charge the production company that produces "Ball in the Family", the Ball family's hit reality show which can be seen exclusively on Facebook Watch, to film at their games. Ball is expecting his first child with his high school girlfriend. The same can be said about Ball, who electrified crowds with his unbelievable passing and playmaking. Even without the father as a consideration, the Lakers may come to their own realization that a ball-dominant, poor-shooting young player isn't the ideal teammate for James. "What's better than three Ball boys together?" he said.
