What did Snoop Dogg think of Lonzo Ball's National Basketball Association debut??

The 19-year-old UCLA product sat on the bench the entire fourth quarter as the Clippers pulled away. Unfortunately, his father LaVar Ball is the main reason he is under so much scrutiny, as his loudmouth nature has but Lonzo under the spotlight.

Lonzo Ball's National Basketball Association debut was not good. All Ball wanted in his debut was a win.

Check out the clip - Snoop thinks Lonzo can be good, but he needs to change his attitude ASAP or he'll continue to get stomped by guys like Patrick Beverley.

While Ball may have most of his success in other players' shoes during the summer league, he said he was going to play in the Big Baller Brand shoes and he did just that.

He explained why the USA and India are "two bookends of stability on either side of the globe", or, simply put, natural partners. He said China was offering financing that saddles countries with enormous debt and triggers for repayment that lead to default.

Ball has often been compared to Jason Kidd (by everyone) and Magic Johnson (by Johnson), but Friday marked the first time Walton invoked the name of Kobe Bryant, his Lakers teammate from 2003-12.

Ball wore his Zo2 Prime shoes for his debut and once again had some trouble scoring.

Appearing in his second career game, Ball finished one assist shy of a triple-double with 29 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

It was an entirely different offensive performance from Thursday's season opener as the Lakers shot 51.1 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from beyond the arc while holding a 62-46 edge in points in the paint.
