Most, if not all, of the talk surrounding Lonzo Ball and Rajon Rondo going into the Los Angeles Lakers’ training camp has been about who will start between the two talented point guard. However, what has been lost in all the chatter has been the value Ball will get from playing with, and possibly under, the four-time NBA All-Star.
After practice on Wednesday, LeBron James shared his thoughts on the Lakers’ new point guard tandem and how valuable of a tool Rondo can be to Ball this season.
“Lonzo is going to be great for our ball club. We have two great point guards in ‘Zo and ‘Do … and that rhymes, so I kinda like that a little bit. They’re going to be great for our ball club. He has a great guy that he can talk to every single day and that’s ‘Do, one of the best point guards we’ve had in our league for years. He’ll benefit from that, for sure.”
