Even though Lonzo Ball has been on the Los Angeles Lakers' roster for longer than LeBron James, it was James that was welcoming Ball back to the floor on Wednesday after Ball made his return from injury.

"I thought those first few minutes was definitely rough on his wind, getting back in a game situation, but he settled in and his ability to see the floor, his ability to push the ball and his athleticism, which you seen on the lob catch from myself. And then defensively, he has some very quick hands so it's great to have him back on the floor," James said via Spectrum SportsNet.
