Lonzo Ball: I’m Better Than Markelle Fultz

UCLA guard Lonzo Ball and U of Washington guard Markelle Fultz are considered the top two prospects in the 2017 NBA Draft. Today Ball took a page out of his father LaVar’s book by getting straight to the point, with confidence, when compared to Fultz.

“Markelle’s a great player, but I feel I’m better than him,” said Ball, who led the Bruins to a pair of blowout victories over Fultz’s Huskies this season.

“I think I can lead a team better than him,” Ball added. “Obviously he’s a great scorer — he’s a great player, so I’m not taking that away from him.”

Lonzo said that he’s better than Fultz and it’s because he can lead a team better than him. Fultz liked the headlines on Twitter, which hints at him using this as motivation.
