We are talking about the 3 potential lottery picks, not 3 brothers.

The OP talks about the team as a whole. The last sentence is "Not bad for a team described as 3 brothers, their cousin, and a good friend."

And obviously I was joking and referring to the team as a whole and to the 3 brothers being on it. Seems pretty clear.

I guess poor wording by me. What I meant was --- "well it's a team that has 3 players that come from Lavar".

The OP explicitly notes in the headline that they had three future lottery picks and obviously on two of the three are from the Ball family. The third one isn't, and he's pretty significant – both as a prospect right now and for what Chino Hills did in HS.

I went to Chino High, not Chino Hills. Chino is a grungy prison town, commonly referenced in prison/gang movies/songs and such. "I'm on my way ta Chee-NO, rollin on the Gray Goose." Chino Hills is for the soft richies like the Balls. They use Hills to differentiate between their nice school and 2016 boys' bball team from the former dairy town that used to smell like cowsht 24/7 back in the late 80s.

I remember I had a project there in the mid-90s and the smell was so strong I had to duck into a little coffee shop to take a break. I asked the worker how could she stand the smell and she just replied, "You just get used to it." It wasn't only the cows, but some industrial stuff going on as well.

Circa 87ish when there was still a lot of dairy activity, the general air could smell like freshly laid manure. Let's say you were in a parking lot and there was a patch of newly sodded ground about 10 feet away from you. It would smell a touch more faint than if you were standing right next to it, but you would still get those telltale wafts every so often. That's what it was like even away from the dairy. The smell wasn't localized just by the dairy areas, it was general air. I've driven past Gilroy, CA (garlic capital of the world) and I think that would be even worse than manure. It was so pungent while whisking past it on the freeway with rolled up windows that I couldn't imagine how long it would take for your nose to get used to how potent the garlic smell was. And I love garlic. You could be eating full-on garlic spaghetti and it wouldn't smell as potent as it did just driving by it. That was 20 yrs ago and it still makes an impression. It was Novemberish I'm gonna say. I don't know when harvest time for garlic is, but maybe that was its time of the year.

Getting a little off topic (OK a lot off topic) but I will one up you. IMO one of the most beautiful places in the world has the worst stench (this may have leveled off a bit as one of the factories closed). American Samoa, particular in Pago Pago (pronounced Pago Pago). Here's a pic:

The end of that harbor leads to the canning factory where most of the world's tuna gets canned. If you've ever had a tuna fish sandwich, odds are it was from American Samoa. Take a can of tuna, open it and let it rot in the sun for about a week, then hold it up to your nose and take a long whiff. Yeah that's Pago Pago, and you can smell it at least a mile out from the city.

I will laugh if Lamelo goes in the top 3-4 picks of the draft, his brother was overrated as **** going into the draft and I'm sure he will be also.

It seemed like every Laker fan kept trying to convince us that Lonzo was going to be a superstar and we all know how that went.

Lamelo is top-2 and Onyeka Okongwu (declared today) will be gone by picks 8-9. That would be impressive for a private school that recruits nationally, or even for a top-ranked university. Just unbelievable when you consider Chino Hills is a public school.

Here's one of the highlight games of the season against Mater Dei, a Div I filled team that many considered would be Chino Hills first loss of the season. Game was over in the 3rd minute.



I gotta admit LiAngelo was a baller. He was never going to the NBA, but he could definitely light it up. Not bad for a team described as 3 brothers, their cousin, and a good friend.


so why do you call him a lottery. you could have said two lottery picks from chino hills and it would have been impressive enough. :) :) :)

Maybe it's just all a mistake and so actually in retrospect it's not that impressive.

The 3rd lottery pick is Onyeka Okongwu not LiAngelo. He stated that in the 2nd sentence...

Yeah, fishy odor conjures up bad fears in most men's minds. One amazing odor place I forgot to give props to was Tijuana, downtown. People who've never been to downtown LA think we got everyone beat on smog. I don't think so. We may have most of ours above nose level at least. Whenever you go to TJ, you know for certain that they don't know what a smog check is. If they do, they just don't bother enforcing them. It's got LA beaten on ground level exhaust smells imo and it's not even close. Their streets are as pungent as it would be in gridlock on a US freeway with some semis in front of you. I'm sure there's worse places as far as smog goes, but I've had a Western hemisphere kinda lyfe.
