"Might as well make it legal". I could feel [the MCL] but the doc says I can get no worse.

Ball, who played on season at UCLA, was asked about amateurism and if college athletes should be paid, considering they help bring in millions in revenue.

We got Devean at LAX on Monday. and the 3-time National Basketball Association champ wasn't ready to close the book on the Zo-I.T. era just yet.

Ball spent one season at UCLA before the Lakers selected him with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft behind Fultz.

While Kuzma did not speak to reporters in the wake of the allegations, fellow rookie Lonzo Ball took a hard stand against the NCAA and the very idea of amateurism.

Olympic team, Randall is the only mother on Team USA. "It feels unreal, I can't believe it just happened", Diggins told reporters. Diggins and Randall are enormously accomplished cross-country racers. "It was really hard to select the team today".

While Kuzma, a native of Flint, Mich., did not speak to reporters Friday morning, Ball said he was unfazed by the alleged payments surfacing. Walton said the rookie will be on limited minutes after the long layoff and he still hasn't decided if Ball will start or come off the bench.

Also named in the report were current USC players Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu, who allegedly were paid at least $2,000 to either themselves or close associates, according to Yahoo Sports. "He really don't care". It was the 10th time in his last 12 games played that Ball has buried two or more 3-pointers in a game. "Now, he's living life".

Ball doesn't think so and there are plenty of other athletes who see the flaw in the system, including Kevin Durant who weighed in on if it's even possible to stop players from being paid by agents.

"All the money that you generate, March Madness, you can look at all the numbers", Ball said.
