Ball sceptics

Recommended Posts

A quote from Isiah Thomas who knows talent as well as anyone and was a very close friend of Magic. Magic actually kissed him once.

During an appearance on FS1’s “First Things First,” former NBA All-Star and Hall-of-Famer Isiah Thomas explained why everyone should cut Ball some slack:

“I think he’s going to be a star in the slow-making. It’s always difficult to come into Los Angeles and be what Magic Johnson was at 19. That very rarely happens. But where he’s at right now and where he’s progressing, he’s touching every box on the stat sheet. He rebounds, he assists, he’s a great teammate. I’ve never heard any of his teammates complaining about him. Whether he was in high school, at UCLA, even now. … His shot will get better, his free-throw shooting will get better, he’ll learn how to score in the NBA. He’s doing all the hard things right now in terms of defending, rebounding and assisting. So, no, he’s not a bust.”
