Lonzo Ball seemed destined to be a Laker but that only lasted two years. He came to New Orleans in the Anthony Davis trade, along with Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart, and he sounds pretty happy about it - and about teaming up with Zion Williamson:

“Man, I’ve never seen somebody that size move like him. He’s only 19, right? He’s definitely a freak. I’ve never seen nothing like it.

”Honestly, you just got to run the lane, set screens and roll. With his game and with him getting a full head of steam, it’s going to be very tough to stop him. So I think we play fast and get out on the break as soon as possible.”

Do that and tickets will sell like hotcakes.
