During Lonzo Ball’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans, the 24-year-old shooter was never able to cement his place as one of the base players on both teams. However, after joining the Chicago Bulls prior to the start of the 2021-22 NBA Season, he became sensational. This has led analyst Shannon Sharpe to appreciate him and even compare him to his younger brother, LaMelo Ball.
Not only was Lonzo the Bulls main serveer, but even topped their scoring charts when the team was in dire need of inspiration. Along with Zach LaVine, Alex Caruso and DeMar DeRozan, the Bulls have not only improved their defensive skills but also dominated star-studded teams in terms of attack. This has led many hoop fans to appreciate the Lonzo Ball, one of which is now, as Shannon Sharpe.
Shannon Sharpe suggests Lonzo Ball is better than LaMelo Ball
Speaking Tuesday on “Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe: Undisputed,” TV personality Shannon Sharpe talks about why he believes Lonzo is better than his brother right now.
“I think it was him, and I always thought Lonzo was a better player. I think LaMelo has a higher ceiling.”
Shannon Sharpe went deeper into how Lonzo coped with lofty expectations after being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers. Lonzo grew up in Southern California and played college basketball at UCLA. Sharpe believes Lonzo is finally in the perfect situation for the point guard to show off his skills.
“I just thought coming to LA, coming from LA… and being pressured by (former Lakers legend) Magic Johnson saying his numbers were going to hang… I just thought it was a lot. Now, he is in an ideal situation, and he can do what he does. ”
Having said that, whether it’s Lonzo or LaMelo, it’s safe to say that both of these brothers have looked impressive in the 2021-22 season so far. This could be huge for them to be selected as an All-Star for the season.
