Lakers legend James Worthy believes in Lonzo and Magic

LOS ANGELES -- James Worthy sees some Magic Johnson-like traits in Lonzo Ball and believes his old Showtime point guard will be able to "deliver" some star reinforcements in free agency this summer.
Before the season started, Johnson, the Los Angeles Lakers' president of basketball operations, said he can envision Ball and Brandon Ingram running the floor like Johnson and Worthy did during their Showtime days. Johnson set an extremely high bar for the past two No. 2 overall picks respectively.
"Big shoes to fill," said Worthy, currently a Lakers analyst for Spectrum SportsNet. "But I think I totally get conceptually where Magic was coming from and the style of play that Luke [Walton] is promoting, the fast-paced game. Lonzo Ball, for sure, presents some of the talents that Magic had. Not as tall, but he is 6-6 and has the IQ, has a vision like no other.
"As soon as players get used to the way he passes and they get some really good shooters around him, I think people will really appreciate him. And they already have appreciated what he brings to the table, a very unselfish player."
