LaVar Ball explains why LaMelo should be No. 1 pick in NBA Draft

  LaVar Ball explains why LaMelo should be No. 1 pick in NBA Draft If it’s up to his big-mouthed father, LaMelo would be going No.1 overall for a few reasons. LaVar Ball speaks out during the "Pardon My Take" podcast last week and told hosts Big Cat and PFT why LaMelo should go No. 1. “In the draft, when you have the No. 1 pick, you want to take a guy who’s most popular. That’s one of the things you want to have — like Zion (Williamson) was most popular last year. And then the second thing is you probably want to take the best guard because that’s how the game is changing. Melo is both of those,” LaVar said.

Johnson had a "good night" in the hospital, a Downing Street statement said.

Elsewhere in Europe, Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said he thinks his country has now reached the peak of its coronavirus infections. But he said any return to normal life would only happen gradually and he asked Spain's Parliament to approve his request to extend the country's state of emergency until April 26.

"The climb has been difficult, as the descent will also be," he said, referring to Spain's 150,000 infections and 15,000 deaths. "We are facing the biggest threat to the planet's public health since the flu of 1918. The last thing we should allow is a step backwards because that would be more than a setback, it would be a rebound" for the virus.
