Lonzo Ball looked up at the famous ceiling at Madison Square Garden and soaked it all in during his first morning shootaround at the arena. Ball has only been to New York twice — the only other time was for the draft — and tonight will be his first game at the Mecca of basketball. Ball says he's mostly stayed in his hotel room outside of making an appearance at a Big Baller Brand pop-up store to sign autographs for thousands of fans who braved the cold on Sunday. It's a big week for the rookie. Besides making his Garden debut, he faces LeBron James, his favorite player growing up, on Thursday for the first time. "Every kid dreams about playing (at the Garden), just because of all the history and all the battles," Ball said. "It's going to be a lot of fun (this week). The Garden, all the history there and then Lebron, best player in the world. Definitely two challenges, and I look forward to it."
