Leaf finished his freshman season having averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

He's, unsurprisingly, not that great.

Many saw those, especially the first one with the sleeping emoji, as jabs at Lonzo and LaVar Ball (remember, LaVar told TMZ that Markelle isn't a victor a week before this Bruins loss).

In his defense, Ball said he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one during his "heyday", but this video clip shows us that Ball is well beyond those days.

"At the end of the day, I'll play for any team", Ball told the crew on "First Take".

Bryant, too, has been a bit too outspoken in the past, but seeing how Ball behaves around his son Lonzo has not met his approval. For some, Ball's remarks may have been a problem, as they might have showed a player who was cocky despite not even being in the National Basketball Association yet. If they just roll the balls out and say: 'who ever is talented go do it.' And I think that is where AAU is failing us.

Dustin Johnson withdraws from Shell Houston Open after Match Play win
He won in 7,800 feet of altitude in Mexico City, and then he saved his best work for perhaps the toughest tournament to win. While the stats will show that Johnson dominated the tournament, he did have a bit of a scare from rookie Jon Rahm .

Russian Opposition Figure Navalny Detained in Moscow Amid Unlicensed Protest
Despite the dramatic scenes in Moscow , state TV did not cover the protests, instead showing soap operas and nature films. Protesters then tried to prevent a police van from taking him away.

Lonzo Ball said he is a better player than Markelle Fultz, citing his ability to "lead a team better" than the Washington star.

I think Lonzo Ball has already taken that approach, but he's got years of experience in dealing with LaVar. Some of the things that he says has shined unfair light on his kids, especially Lonzo.

If all goes right in my own life, I will be a sports broadcaster and maybe I will have a son or daughter who will be a prominent athlete.

Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz are widely considered the top-2 players in the 2017 NBA Draft class.

"The guy is going to ruin it for his kids", Mike Bryant told ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Tuesday, via Jesse Rogers of ESPN. In addition, he is one four players in the country, along with Hart, Mason III and Swanigan, to have secured consensus first-team All-America acclaim - first-team selections by the AP, Sporting News, the USBWA and the NABC. Lonzo has the looks of being an effective player, possibly an all-star, but not a transcendent player the way his father would lead you to believe. LaVar Ball claims he'd have crushed Jordan one-on-one, but Bryant is more realistic about his talents. However, Ball has a tendency to get carried away.
