“Big Game James” just dished out some serious praise to Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — telling TMZ Sports he’s REALLY excited about the kid … and gave him one of the best compliments ever.
Of course, Worthy was Magic Johnson‘s running mate back on the Showtime Lakers in the ’80s — and has been heavily involved with the Lakers organization ever since.
So, for James to heap that kind of praise on Lonzo is a pretty big deal.
We know what you’re thinking — is James dissing Kobe?
We don’t think so — seems more like a pure point guard comparison to us.
One thing’s for sure … LaVar Ball is gonna LOOOOVE this clip.
