He's only visited Los Angeles during his pre-draft activities, so all signs pointed to the Lakers as his most likely destination because Jackson has yet to make an official visit with Boston or Philadelphia. He was one of the best players on a loaded Kentucky team all season, but stepped his game up when faced with arguably the best point guard in the country - UCLA's Lonzo Ball.
Technically, Lonzo Ball's professional National Basketball Association career hasn't started yet. "I think I can contribute to that". "Every aspect of the game, I just feel like I attack it". Fox wanted to show the Lakers that he has the capacity for shooting range and accuracy. "We put that behind us", Fox said, citing the 2011 draft experiences of Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas. "The Lord already knows I was going to get drafted at 1 or 29".
Smith Jr.is often forgotten, despite putting up similar stats to Fultz. It was just something I had to do and I learned from the mistake that I made. Fox also listed Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell as one of those players in case the Lakers pass on Fox. They are not impressed, however, with his level of conditioning.

And yes, that's LaVar Ball getting cut off at the end of the clip in a moment of pure beauty.
"The point guards in this draft are really, really, really good and are special", Jackson said. "They really don't have a leader". Or maybe both sides are correct and the 76ers have actually promised Jackson (or even another team not mentioned). After that pick, the Lakers could take anyone they want - there's no need to promise Jackson they'll pick him.
