There was a show in Vegas, and LaVar Ball was the star

The game was a spectacle, with NBA players, college coaches and fans flocking to see LaVar Ball, LaMelo Ball and the Big Baller Brand AAU in Vegas. To LaVar, it was all about him. "The best coach ever. That's how I describe myself," he said.

Officers and organizers may cancel LaMelo Ball's matchup against Zion Williamson in Las Vegas due to fire code concerns. "We may shut it down," one law enforcement official said.

People trying to get into the Cashman Center an hour before LaMelo Ball faces Zion Williamson. Organizers have just instructed security to "close the doors" and block anyone else from entering due to fire code concerns. Chaotic scene.

Shades of Jason Kidd for Lonzo Ball

Ball's path to the NBA has come close to mirroring that of Kidd's thus far. The 1994 No. 2 pick by the Mavericks went on to earn 10 All-Star berths during his playing career.

Pacers select UCLA's Ike Anigbogu, a big man who they hope will help them defensively, with the No. 47 pick. He averaged 4.7 points and 4.0 rebounds in just 13 minutes a game last season at UCLA. The Pacers selected Anigbogu's teammate, T.J. Leaf, in the first round
