Per the OC Register:
“First of all, congratulations to him,” James told reporters Monday morning in New York. “I think he’s going to be a really, really good point guard in our league. Probably a great point guard if he continues to work on his craft, which it seems like he does. They got a good one.”
When word of the compliment reached Ball following shootaround in Phoenix, he said it gave him “motivation” to continue to improve.
“If he says that it’s like an honor,” Ball said. “So I’m going to work and keep trying to get better every day.”
