The UCLA men's basketball program is back on the national map thanks in large part to the play of guard Lonzo Ball. And his success has many speculating just how well his game will translate to the next level.
So, if you ask Ball's father LaVar, Lonzo is primed to be one of the best the game's ever seen.
Even better than Golden State Warriors two-time Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry.
LaVar spoke to TMZ on Wednesday and had the following to say about the comparison between his son and the Warriors' All-Star guard:
“You can't compare my boy to nobody. ... He’s going to be better than Steph Curry. Steph Curry’s really good, but my son is young, he’s got time to go. And you only consider him (Curry) good because he won a couple of championships. What if he didn’t win no championships? He made some shots at the right time. But he’s not as young as my boy.”
Lonzo is averaging 15.4 points and 7.6 assists per game this season with the Bruins in leading UCLA to a 23-3 record.
In his first year at Davidson, Curry averaged 21.5 points and 2.8 assists per game.
Curry would go on to win two Southern Conference Player of the Year awards, an NCAA scoring title (2009) and finished his college career with a scoring average of 25.3.
