There have been mixed reviews on the Lonzo Ball experiment thus far in Tinseltown, but one thing that is very apparent though is that Ball is a special talent at passing the basketball and utilizes his height and instincts to already be one of the best rebounding point guards in the NBA.
He used those talents and had one of his best shooting nights from the field to record his first NBA triple-double, making him the youngest player in NBA history to achieve the feat.

He beat King James record by five days with his impressive 19 point, 13 assist, 11 rebound, four block and three steal performance on 58% shooting in the Lakers loss in Milwaukee.
Ball wasn’t too impressed with his accomplishment though and essentially said it was meaningless as it didn’t lead to a Lakers victory.
“I really don’t care. We took a loss, so, it doesn’t really mean nothing,” Ball said in his post-game interview.
Nights like this when Lonzo Ball is pushing the tempo and making great decisions while knocking down his jump shots give you a view into the kind of super star he can develop into in a few seasons as he adjusts to the speed and physicality of the NBA game and grows his confidence with his jump shot.
Don’t be too surprised if Ball records a few more triple-doubles this season…
