Lakers legend Magic Johnson likes the pick and is excited to see the 19-year-old shooting guard play for the purple and gold. He also pointed at which areas of the game the rookie has to improve.
“I’m excited about the @Lakers draft pick MSU’s Max Christie! He can play multiple positions, is an excellent defender, has a high basketball IQ, and has a beautiful jump shot. Max just needs to get stronger and work on his ball handling,” the five-time NBA champion tweeted.
