I was high on Ball early in the year because of his playmaking but I honestly think his meddlesome father and the drama around Ball could be a serious distraction to any team drafting him. As a Suns fan, if we don’t land the first pick, I hope we draft Josh Jackson and let the Lakers deal with Lonzo, Magic Johnson with a jump shot, Ball and his father. Maybe he’ll sell more $500 shoes in LA.
