Lonzo Ball Says Lakers Need a Leader at PG Like Him, Not D’Angelo Russell
Just two years ago, the Los Angeles Lakers selected point guard D’Angelo Russell with the 2nd overall draft pick. He was expected to be their guard for the foreseeable future.
Two years later, the Lakers find themselves in a similar situation with the #2 overall draft pick, and all signs are pointing to them taking UCLA standout Lonzo Ball.
On Wednesday, Lonzo worked out with the Lakers and threw some subtle shade at Russell not being a leader.
Lonzo on the Lakers: “They have a lot of good players. I just think they need a leader at point guard. I feel I can bring that to the team.”

It was just a few weeks ago when Russell threw the first shot, as someone noticed he liked a tweet on Twitter about the Lakers being stupid if they draft Lonzo.
