Here are the first vicious National Basketball Association shots at Lonzo and LaVar Ball

After his son Lonzo was selected second overall to his home team Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, it was a dream come true for the Ball family. They also hold the 28th pick.

Lonzo Ball usually grins and sighs when his father gets on the microphone, but he openly acknowledged he wanted to land with the Lakers, who needed a fortunate showing in the draft lottery just to end up with the second pick.

After meeting with the Lakers twice and notably not publicly meeting with other teams, Ball's gamble appeared to pay off when he heard his name called by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York on Thursday night.

Ball seems certain to become the starting point guard in coach Luke Walton's up-tempo offense after D'Angelo Russell is traded to Brooklyn. DEVELOPING: We will update this story as the draft continues. The Lakers brought in each of the four in for individual workouts, including Ball.

With UCLA last season, Ball had a standout year as a freshman, averaging 14.6 points, 7.6 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals while shooting 41.2 percent from three and 55.1 percent from the field. Now, Johnson believes Ball can do the same thing.
