Jason Kidd says it’s “a stretch” to compare Lonzo Ball to him this early and that people really need to give the Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard time to develop his game and shot.

“I am not saying it is not fair [to make the comparison], but it is too early,” the Milwaukee Bucks coach told ESPN.com by telephone in an interview about Ball. “People are talking about Rookie of the Year; we are already talking about awards [for Ball]. But it is really early and we are 12 games into this. We are jumping the gun a little bit. Let’s enjoy and watch this young kid play and then we will make the comparison at 40 games [or more].
