Lonzo's new shot could be just what he needs to thrive with LeBron

  Lonzo's new shot could be just what he needs to thrive with LeBron Lonzo Ball must find a way to become an improved shooter, or the pairing with LeBron James won’t work. It seems that the Lakers point guard is getting the message.When Lonzo Ball was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Lakers legend and current president of basketball operations Magic Johnson put a lot on Ball's shoulders, saying he anticipates the Lakers retiring Ball's jersey in the future.
