ANAHEIM, Calif. – In his first preseason game as a Los Angeles Laker, Lonzo Ball struggled with his shot but still displayed his ability to rack up triple-double-like numbers.

After a summer and first week of camp that only added to the hype surrounding Ball, the No. 2 overall pick finally made his preseason debut with five points, eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals in a 108-99 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Honda Center.

Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has a $495 signature sneaker of his own but could switch up his sneakers from game to game.

Still, Ball entertained fans with his passing as he zipped balls all over the court.

“Welcome to the Ball era. Everybody’s coming to the Ball era.”

Ball had a very similar game in his summer league debut before racking up a couple of triple-doubles and leading the Lakers to the summer league title.
