During a recent radio interview with Big Boy, the now-New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball talked on his younger brother LiAngelo’s, who last played for the Los Angeles Ballers of the JBA, chances to play in the NBA:

“I think he can make it. He’s 6-foot-6, he can shoot, he’s 240 pounds, so he’s strong enough to guard anybody. I mean, as long he gets healthy and works on his handle, he should be alright,” Ball said, per USA Today.

This past season, Lonzo averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game for the Lakers.
