LaVar Ball told us it would happen.

The Los Angeles Lakers came out of Tuesday night's NBA draft lottery with the No. 2 overall pick, putting them in position to select former Chino Hills (California) and UCLA star guard Lonzo Ball.

CBS Los Angeles captured footage of the family's celebration at their Chino Hills home. Lonzo danced in the kitchen next to his brother (and future Bruin) LiAngelo.

"I told him he was going to go to the Lakers. I'm gonna speak it into existence," LaVar boomed. "Boston's going to take their Markelle Fultz; he's a good player. I think he fits best with Boston. But you can't bring him to L.A., he ain't ready for this. Only one person's ready for this: It's that Ball boy."

"I know I must be a genius to plan it this way," LaVar continued. "[Lonzo's] number has always been No. 2, and guess what he's going. No. 2…to the Lakers, baby! Here we come."

LaVar told Lakers Nation's Ryan Ward that Lonzo will only work out for the Lakers.
