The 19-year-old point guard who is from Anaheim, a few miles from Los Angeles has been compared with the likes of Magic Johnson, who heads the basketball operations of the Lakers.
Magic Johnson referred to Lonzo Ball as the new face of the Lakers. He also stated to Lonzo that he expects a Ball jersey to be hanging on their wall of legendary players.
The praise didn't stop there from Johnson went as far as stating that he believes Ball would one day have his jersey retired by the team and challenge numerous franchise records held by the NBA Hall of Famer. I think they have enough talent. "I'll definitely be chasing that".
"Yeah", was Ball's answer when asked about whether or not he can bring the Lakers back to the playoffs during a conference call. He says it gives him something to work toward. "They're good, and God blessed them, so we all good to go". And [Lakers coach] Luke [Walton] and the coaching staff will do the same thing and it's OK, because he receives all that well. I'm fine where we are. He treated people the right way. "Right now, I'm hoping [Lonzo] leads us to a couple summer league victories, and we'll take it from there", Walton responded. "We feel like we have that person right here in Lonzo Ball".
"Well, the support here is great, so it's not just me", Ball said. I kind of patterned my game after that. "It's going to be a surprise for you guys and me". "I'm not really anxious about all that". He doesn't need to change. The Lakers are thin at bench guards, which could mean Corey Brewer and Hart splitting minutes while Clarkson plays more of a point guard role. They cleared a ton of cap space, which can make them major players in free agency in 2018.
"Come see me when he does". But what I needed was a leader. And that's what type of passer he is. He understands angles. That's also hard. The Lakers will have 2 new additions to the starting five with Lopez and Ball and the 76ers will be adding Fultz and last year's No. 1- Simmons to the rotation. Moments after Lonzo Ball was selected, his father, LaVar, guaranteed the eldest Ball boy would lead the Lakers to the playoffs. With the Golden State Warriors winning their second National Basketball Association title in three years with a roster that includes four all-stars under the age of 30, both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics are expected to make moves this summer that better position themselves to complete with the Warriors. Celebrity guest spots have ranged from limited in-ring action to simply being shown backstage or on camera from seats in the past, so there's no telling what direction they would go in this instance.
Ball is facing sky-high expectations, but he's also just one part of Johnson's plan to transform the Lakers into a championship contender after the worst four-season stretch in franchise history.
Now, before anyone says "That's just because he dunks a lot" or "He usually just drives to the rim anyways", let me stop you. He set a school record with 105 3-pointers. "I don't think that those things are going to continue to happen", Chriss said.
