Thursday was the official start of LaVar Ball's Junior Basketball Association, which went head-to-head with the NBA Draft. Shelburne reports the latter squad never promised LiAngelo he would receive an invite, and that their choice would be purely based on performance; however, sources suggest LaVar Ball's media antics played a big role in the Lakers' decision.
