Lonzo Ball Says He’s Better Than Projected Top Pick Markelle Fultz
March 28 / Marcus Blackwell / SportsGrid
Lonzo Ball is undeniably one of the better NBA prospects that we have seen in recent years, with his exceptional court vision and shooting ability being the highlights of his game. Also, let's not look over the fact that he is a 6'6 point guard. On ESPN Radio 710 LA, Lonzo spoke a little about his current draft projections, and the one guy projected to go higher than him: Markelle Fultz.
“Markelle’s a great player, but I feel I’m better than him,” said Ball.
"I think I can lead a team better than him. Obviously he's a great scorer ... he's a great player, so I'm not taking that away from him."
I took no issue with Ball's statements, being the young competitor that he is. Now he just has to back it up. Both players had exceptional years for their respective universities, but the true test is in the future.
Is Lonzo a better prospect for the NBA than Markelle Fultz? Only time will tell, but we are definitely excited to see these young guys develop.
