Lonzo Ball is 20 years and 15 days old. Now he is the youngest NBA player to ever post a triple-double. Five days younger, in fact, than the previous youngest triple-double holder—LeBron James.
Yes, that LeBron.

All season long, Lonzo has been struggling with his shot. However, he’s pitching in all over the court in multiple ways.
But on Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, he would post a line of 19/12/12 along with three steals and a block. The Lakers would fall to the Bucks, however, 90-98.
The kid just needs to get his shot down consistently. But in the meantime, it’s obvious why so much hype surrounds the Lakers’ point guard.
