Magic Johnson Says Lonzo Ball Will Get More Triple-Doubles

Ryan Mayer

Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball has been the talk of the NBA over the last couple weeks due to his play at the Las Vegas Summer League. Ball was the league’s MVP leading the team to the title game, averaging 16.3 points, 9.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game. Despite him missing the title game, the Lakers wrapped up the Summer League title with a win over the Trailblazers on Monday night.

In putting up those numbers, Ball recorded two tripledoubles during his stay in Vegas and Lakers president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson, told ESPN that fans can expect more of the same in the regular season.

“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 [in 1979]. I didn’t care about that. I am going to play my game. Lonzo is going to play his game. The great ones do.”
