Lonzo Ball laughs at NCAA hypocrisy: 'Everybody knows everybody's getting paid'

Chris Paul of the Houston Rockets

That is what makes him one of five players to average 10 or more points and seven or more rebounds and assists. Ball also played for the first time since January 13, adding nine points in 17 minutes off the bench. "Then obviously staggering, it's nice to have a smart playmaking point guard on the floor at all times".

Ball's father, LaVar Ball, has taken steps to launch a basketball league for high school graduates who don't want to go to college, with players earning between $3,000 and $10,000 each month.

Still, Ball's return is welcome news for the Lakers in their first game following the All-Star break. All the money they generate for the programs & stuff, it's kind of an unfair system.Everybody knows everybody's getting paid & that's how it is.

This was also the first time the home crowd got to see Thomas in a Lakers uniform after the guard played his first three Lakers games on the road following his trade from Cleveland. "They are an affront to all those who play by the rules".

It remained unclear whether Ball, who has started each of his 36 games this season, will do so again or come off the bench against the Mavericks. From the outside looking in, watching the Lakers play, he is very good and goes at his own pace, which is a strength to have at a young age. A day earlier, Ball said he thought playing with Thomas would be "easy" and "fun".

LOS ANGELES - In his first game back from injury after almost six weeks off, Lonzo Ball came off the bench and still had to wait a little bit longer before he could play.

That said, D.G. told us the Lakers should look at other free agents before paying Isaiah a dime.
