LeBron James Literally Compares Lonzo To Himself After Triple-Double Performance


To say that Lonzo and LeBron are vital to the Lakers is an understatement. In fact, most would agree that the two are the most important players on the team.

After their triple-double performance in Saturday's 128-100 win over the Charlotte Hornets, LeBron gave some really high praise towards the young Lakers star.

(per Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times)

“We’re one and the same when it comes to our playmaking ability. We’re always looking for our teammates and that’s the greatest satisfaction we can have when we see our teammates score the ball. We’ve always been pretty good rebounders for our position, him at the guard spot, me at the forward spot. And then being able to put the ball in the hole as well. We just try to be aggressive, attack the rim, make shots from the outside when guys disrespect us and we showed all of that tonight.”

To compare Lonzo's game to his own really speaks to how highly James thinks of him. Can't remember a time where he's said that to another player.

He's not entirely wrong, either. Although Lonzo struggles with his shot, the team is better with him on the floor on both ends. His unselfish play and the way he sets up his teammates is unmatched compared to other players his age.
