LeBron James Praises Lonzo Ball: ‘The Kid Can Play’

In advance of his upcoming matchup against Lonzo Ball, LeBron James spoke highly of the Lakers rookie.

In an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, LeBron praised Ball’s humility and game.

“I love his humility. He goes out, every time someone asks him a question, he says, ‘This is not about me, man. I just want to win. I don’t care about what I did.’


“I seen he had a triple-double one game and they lost. He was like, ‘I don’t care. We lost.’ […]


“Can he play ball? Absolutely. The kid can play ball.


“Do guys want to play with him? Absolutely, because it’s a guy who is not about him. It’s about the success of the team.”
