"The point guards in this draft are really, really, really good and are special", Jackson said. Additionally, if the Lakers were set on drafting Josh Jackson already, they would not schedule a second workout with Ball.
The Lakers may end up selecting Josh Jackson, but I highly doubt they've settled on a decision today. "My dad and I both love the humor of the spot and I'm glad I got to have a little fun around the topic before going to the league".

The L.A. Lakers have had Jackson in for two workouts thus far in advance of the June 22 draft, with Jackson saying he was happy to be called back. Ball is eager to stay home with the Lakers, and he went through an extensive workout in El Segundo last week.
