LeBron James believes Lonzo Ball will be great for Lakers: ‘It’s going to happen’

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Lakers won for the ninth time in 11 games with a sloppy 90-83 victory over the Utah Jazz, but the night might be notable for something that took place afterward.

LeBron James talked about greatness.

Not his own. The greatness of Lonzo Ball.

"Sometimes he doesn't realize how great he is and the things that he possesses out on the floor," James said while sitting in front of his locker. "And when Zo realizes how good he is on the floor, it makes him a very dynamic player and it makes us even better."

James seemed to be very well of his own greatness Friday night after scoring 18 of his 22 points in the second half and blocking a driving layup by Utah's Alec Burks with 27.6 seconds left that would have pulled the Utah within three points. James also had 10 rebounds and seven assists but seemed more interested in talking about Ball.
