T.J. Leaf is following Lonzo Ball to the NBA.
UCLA’s freshman forward declared for the NBA Draft on Thursday.
“This was a huge decision for me and my family,” Leaf said in a statement. “It was definitely one of the hardest decisions in my life. I have decided to declare for the NBA Draft with the intent of hiring an agent.
However, it was his 9.3 assists per contest, a Summer League record, that was his most eye-popping stat. More than the passes that led directly to buckets, Lonzo’s utter selflessness and court vision (think how a great quarterback such as Aaron Rodgers throws receivers open) is what Paypal Cheap Jerseys really wowed both spectators and commentators alike.

The message from Lue and his players the last week or so has been consistent. The standings aren’t something they completely ignore, but the focus is on fixing what’s wrong.
“I think (the Celtics) definitely have our attention, but whatever happens, it happens,” Lue said after a win against the Hornets on Friday. “We’re first, we’re second. As long as we’re healthy, we’re great. I told the guys, ‘every series we played in last year, we won on the road.’ You gonna be a championship team, you gotta win on the road anyway … If my team is healthy, we’re gonna be good. We’re gonna be OK.”
