The Los Angeles Lakers requested a second workout with Lonzo Ball at their practice facility, but agent Harrison Gaines insisted the team instead see a day in Ball's life.
During a four-hour meeting in Chino Hills, LaVar Ball, trainer Darren Moore, Gaines, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka all watched his training session which included running hills, weightlifting, on-court drills and then breakfast with the entire Ball family.
“I wanted to show I don’t hide from anything,” Lonzo told The Vertical. “I just wanted to show the type of person I am. I wanted to show them what I do every day. I don’t hide. The way it turned out, I was very happy with it.”
At 8 a.m., Lonzo started the first part of a full daily routine led by Moore and LaVar. Lonzo ran a mile and then sprinted up two different steep hills near his home eight times each.
A weight-room session in the Ball family’s garage followed at 9:15 a.m., which included a discussion of basketball philosophy between Lonzo, Johnson and Pelinka.
Lonzo then had an on-court workout with Moore at 10:30 a.m at Chino Hills High School.
LaVar then prepared a meal for the meeting with Johnson and Pelinka at the Ball residence.
Ball was sick during his first workout with the Lakers on June 7th, but believed his adrenaline would negate any weakness.
