New Orleans Pelicans need Lonzo Ball to fill gap at point guard, not mimic JJ Redick’s role on the team

While in the process of wrapping up his freshman season at UCLA, Lonzo Ball was lauded for being “Jason Kidd with a better shot.” With the form on his jumper a wildly unorthodox motion though, an analogy was made to Jim Furyk. If the professional golfer could find that much success on the PGA Tour, surely Ball’s repeatable and reliable stroke could find a way to survive in the NBA.

Fast forward less than three years and Ball’s biggest perceived weakness in his first two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers might be the least of what ails his game currently.
