- Welcome to the NBA!
During the NBA Draft on Thursday night, all eyes were on the Los Angeles Lakers' selection, Lonzo Ball. Chris Harris Jr., a diehard Lakers fan, was ecstatic about GM Magic Johnson's No. 2 overall pick. Rookie Garett Bolles was also tuned in to the "Lake Show," but for a completely different reason. The Lakers drafted his former classmate, Kyle Kuzma, with their 27th pick.

One day after the NBA Draft, Chris Harris Jr. hung out with NBA legend Dirk Nowitzki at the 2017 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game to support Nowitzki's charity.
- Giving back to his hometown
Harris Jr. has been busy since minicamp ended, spending most of his time in Bixby, Oklahoma, giviing back to his hometown community. He first held his annual youth football camp last weekend and then transitioned to the classroom for his next philanthropic event. Harris spent Monday reading children's books to those participating in his summer reading program.
Harris isn't the only player doing community work in his time off. Domata Peko spent Thursday building a playground at R.C. Hinsdale Elementary School in Kentucky.
