LeBron James has expressed admiration for Indiana Pacers’ point guard TJ McConnell, highlighting him as one of his favorite players in the NBA currently.

During a recent episode of the Mind The Game podcast, James likened McConnell’s impact to that of Draymond Green as a point guard.

“One of my favorite players in the NBA right now is TJ McConnell. He is like Draymond [Green] as a point guard,” James said.

McConnell’s versatile contributions on the court have caught the attention of the Lakers star, who values his skill set and basketball IQ.

With McConnell averaging 10.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game this season, his influence extends beyond traditional statistical measures.
