Magic Johnson highlights where Lonzo Ball must improve

Lonzo Ball

Los Angeles Lakers president Magic Johnson has some things he wants to see more of from Lonzo Ball next season.

Ball’s rookie season was a mixed bag, as the guard averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists, and 6.9 rebounds per game. Johnson wants to see more in Ball’s second season — both in terms of tangibles and intangibles.

Perhaps that means Johnson would like to see Ball reverse this recent decision. The Lakers didn’t draft him No. 2 overall for him to be a good passer — they want a franchise player who can score, assist, and lead the team. Nobody should have reasonably expected that from day one, but it’s clear that Johnson will be looking for growth in those departments in the years to come.
