Lonzo Ball: I’m Better Than Markelle Fultz

Lakers: Lonzo Ball’s Conditioning Poor At Workout

UCLA super star freshman Lonzo Ball said he’s better than fellow all-star freshman Markelle Fultz of Washington.

 

“Markelle’s a great player, but I feel I’m better than him,” Ball told ESPN 710 LA. “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.”

 

Fultz responded to Ball’s diss with the Tweet, “In the words of Marshawn Lynch ‘I’m about that action.’”

 

Ball, a 6-6 point guard, led the nation in assists this season, averaging 14.7 points, 7.6 assists, and 6.1 rebounds while guiding the Bruins to a 31-5 record (15-3 Pac-12) and the NCAA’s Sweet 16.

 

He was also the only freshman named to the All-American First-Team.

 

Fultz, a 6-5 guard, led the Pac-12 Conference in scoring this season, averaging 23.2 points, a team-high 5.9 assists, and 5.7 rebounds for Washington.

 

Fultz set a school freshman record with 579 points this year and was selected to the All-Pac-12 First-Team.

 

However, the Huskies were a dismal 9-21 this season, leading to the firing of head coach Lorenzo Romar.

 

ESPN’s Chad Ford predicts that Fultz will be the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and that Ball will be No. 2.
