James Worthy on Lonzo Ball: ‘We haven’t had someone with that type of talent really since Magic came’

Lakers G Lonzo Ball has gained another fan. Hall of Famer and former Lakers great James Worthy is a big fan of Ball.

The 19-year-old rookie was named Summer League MVP.

Here is what “Big Game James” told TMZ Sports:

“I really like him as a player. He’s extremely unselfish, he’s a team player; he enhances everybody on the court. We haven’t had someone with that type of talent really since Magic came,” Worthy said.

Is Worthy saying Ball is more talented than Kobe Bryant? If so, he’s wrong, but the kid does have talent. 

Time will tell if Lonzo Ball can live up to the hype! If he is anything close to Magic, the Lakers have done well.

  1. Big Game James making a cognitive comment on Lonzo Ball’s type of play mirrors that of Earvin Magic Johnson when it comes to his court vision, basketball IQ, and unselfishness. Kobe was in fact more talented but was not always inclusive when it came to involving other players.
