"She wants to talk, and she can get out a few words", Ball said.
There are years of reasons for my skepticism. Thanks to this being a deep draft, the Lakers would still likely end up with a good player in the top seven, while also adding a pick next year when they won't have their own. Then-general manager John Nash and the Sixers, who were willing to make the swap for Richmond - though they preferred Hawkins - called Nelson's bluff and Golden State chose Richmond, leaving Hawkins for the Clippers and Sixers.
Lonzo doesn't buy into that narrative, however, as he explained later in an ESPN feature with Jeff Goodman that the two guards could form a great partnership together. Rather than risk it, GM Billy King sent a 2009 second-rounder and cash to Miami to ensure he wound up with Smith.
Who that might be is just a little more blurry now than before. She'll take of what you want. Tina Ball suffered a stroke in February, and it took away her ability to speak while keeping her in a hospital for over two months.
Ainge later apologized to Young, saying he was anxious that the Cavaliers, who went with Andre Miller, would snag Marion at No. 8. The thing is, he never was going to do that in a one-on-none workout format that gave him no one to find with a dynamic hit-ahead pass in transition or a perfectly timed bounce pass for a basket cutter.
Ball said he's been monitoring Tina since she returned home and feels confident he can restore her strength while their sons continue doing what they were raised to do: play basketball.
