He plays his first professional game barely a year after his last high school game. He plays a main stage in Las Vegas even though he’s not old enough to gamble. It is the middle of July in a league whose season doesn’t begin until October.

He plays his third professional game mostly with scrubs who won’t be his teammates in three months. He plays against a team whose No. 1 overall draft pick is watching from the bench with an injury. The action is hurriedly paced and loosely officiated.
Yet Lonzo Ball plays great, so he is a complete and unalterable Magic Johnson.
Heaven help the most...
