We can’t control the weather, but league can control whether or not player health will be put at risk tomorrow. Aces will have been traveling for 24 hrs by the time we land. No night of sleep. On Wednesday, Lonzo Ball raised eyebrows when he wore a pair of Nikes instead of his family’s own Big Baller Brand shoes, priced at a mere $495 in a Summer League game for the Lakers.

Apparently, the owner of the cars parked them in that garage after his mechanic died in a motorcycle accident, then never hired a replacement. The cars sat there indefinitely, until the city condemned the garage and forced the owner to relocate its contents, and the owner was like, “Oh yeeeeah, this million dollar 1960s Ferrari I own!
