Magic Johnson: More Triple-Doubles to Come for Lonzo Ball
Magic Johnson believes Lonzo Ball’s triple-doubles in summer league were just a preview of more to come.
“You can see that. If he’s getting triple-doubles in the summer league, he is going to get triple-doubles in the regular season,” Johnson said. “Just like me, when I got here, there was pressure. I was the No. 1 pick. I didn’t care about that. I am going to play my game. Lonzo is going to play his game. The great ones do.”
Johnson spoke Tuesday after the Los Angeles Lakers introduced two-way guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at their team facility.
The Lakers legend praised the way Ball impacts the game and his teammates as a point guard and said he sees some similarities between Ball and himself in how they play.
Ball sat out Monday’s Las Vegas Summer League championship game against the Portland Trail Blazers after suffering a calf injury the day before. An MRI on Tuesday confirmed a mild calf strain, and the Lakers said he is expected to need one to two weeks of rest.
