This could be great for De'Aaron Fox, but you wouldn't think Lonzo Ball would do it. With many of the NBA experts guessing that Ball will go second to his team, the Lakers in the NBA draft, and Fox going perhaps 5th, it would be a fun battle to watch.
The two times UK played UCLA this year, Fox was better. The former UK star scored 39 points in 36 minutes when UK beat UCLA in the NCAA Tournament,86-75. Ball had 10 points and 8 assists.
At Rupp, when UCLA won 97-92, Fox had 20 points and 9 assists. Ball, who got off to a terrible start finished with 14 points, 7 assists and 6 turnovers.
Word out of LA is Lonzo Ball is heavy favorite at #2, but will take a long hard look at De'Aaron Fox too. Hoping for a head to head workout.
