In an appearance on his own podcast “Pull Up”, the Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum talked on the now-New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball youngest brother LaMelo, who plays for the Illawarra Hawks:

“Seeing his brother in the league, being exposed to NBA lifestyle, NBA workouts so early on has benefited him and he’s 6’7” now – he’s legit. No offense to his brother, I think he’s better than Zo and Zo’s a good NBA player. I think offensively he has a lot of tools: He’s good in pick n’ roll, he’s got pace, he’s got size, he can finish around the basket, he’s got floaters from out to 15-feet …

I think his dad was right, and I wouldn’t say this very often about things the dad says, but in this case I think he’s going to be the best out of all three brothers and I think his repertoire in offensive versatility is going to translate to the NBA right now and I think he’s going to have a long career in the NBA,” McCollum said, per USA Today.
