‘Lonzo Ball says He’s Better than Markelle Fultz’

Lonzo Ball said he is a better player than Markelle Fultz, citing his ability to “lead a team better” than the Washington star.

Ball and Fultz are widely considered to be the top two prospects in this year’s NBA draft. Ball, who declared for the draft last Friday after UCLA was eliminated from the NCAA tournament, addressed the debate between himself and Fultz during an interview Tuesday with ESPN 710 LA.

“Markelle’s a great player, but I feel I’m better than him,” said Ball, who led the Bruins to a pair of blowout victories over Fultz’s Huskies this season.

“I think I can lead a team better than him,” Ball added. “Obviously he’s a great scorer — he’s a great player, so I’m not taking that away from him.”

Fultz and Ball also were projected as the No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks, respectively, in Ford’s latest mock draft.”
