Summary:

Lonzo Ball is a talented, highly skilled combo guard that has a solid all-around game.  He can make shots from anywhere on the floor, as he can knock down many threes from beyond the arc, as well as throw down thunderous dunks on the break.

​Plus, he is a cerebral playmaker that has outstanding court vision, as he has unbelievable court sense that allows him to make plays very few can make.  Also, he is a solid defender that has the ability to lock down his man out on the perimeter.

​NBA teams will be looking hard at him to determine if he can be a consistent performer on a nightly basis, and to see if he has what it takes to be great.  Undoubtedly, he has All-Star level talent, as he has the skills to be a high lottery pick in 2017.
