Lonzo Ball is a Laker.

Sometimes, things just work out.

L.A. happened to buck the lottery odds to end up with the No. 2 pick in a year in which a local kid was sitting there for the taking.

Just like in 2003, when LeBron James went to his hometown Cavs, or 2008, when Chicago had the No. 1 slot in native Derrick Rose’s class, a local kid will start for the team he dreamed of starring for.

The 19-year-old called it a "dream come true" to be able to stay in Los Angeles and work with arguably the greatest point guard ever, Lakers president Magic Johnson.

“It’s crazy,” Ball told ESPN after being drafted. “I couldn’t ask for anything more. Just to be able to learn from him every day should be amazing.”
