Could Markelle Fultz have a bigger rookie impact than Lonzo Ball? Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, Ball was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League but had to sit out the championship game due to injury. Until this year, no rookie had posted more than one with 10 assists and no rookie had completed more than one triple double. "If he's getting triple-doubles in the summer league, he is going to get triple-doubles in the regular season". "The way he plays, he's always got his poise about him, just an incredible basketball player and with the unselfish nature he plays the game, it just becomes contagious and I think other guys started picking up and playing off of that".

According to Johnson, that bodes well for the Lakers' future. I didn't care about that. It's definitely going to be a memory that I cherish for the rest of my life. "The great ones do", he was quoted by ESPN as saying.

Obviously as a shooter you go through your ups and downs.

"Lonzo is special, no question about it, because he makes everyone better", Johnson said. Very few point guards in this league can do that. "He has a special effect on people".

His Vegas experience has seen him emerging from the massive shadow of Ball: In seven games, he averaged 21.9 ppg and 6.4 rpg while shooting better than 51 percent from the field (and extremely well from 3-point range, given his college career 30.2 percent mark from deep).
