Video: Lonzo Ball scores first basket, a 3-pointer
The Lakers have struggled in the first half, letting the LA Clippers take a 53-42 lead at Staples Center. Lonzo Ball, arguably the most famous 2nd overall pick in NBA history, has had trouble adjusting to the physicality of the NBA, at least according to this video:

Luckily for Ball, he does not need to adapt a new play style on all fronts quite yet. Many critics have predicted Lonzo’s awkward shot will allow virtually any NBA player to defend him, but that very shot happened to be the first basket Ball made in his NBA debut.
