“People were telling me, this kid shoots just like you,” Martin said in a phone interview last week, recalling how he learned of his new perimeter doppelgänger in the lead-up to the draft last summer. “And I was like, ‘There’s no way somebody else shoots like me.’ I never thought my form would come to the surface again in basketball history. Then I saw him and said, ‘We have the exact same starting point and end point.’ It’s crazy.”
Turns out Billups isn’t the only one who has had that thought. Corey Brewer, the veteran Lakers forward who is close friends with Martin, passed along Ball’s phone number in hopes that the two might connect. But the ever-polite Martin — who was reluctant to be interviewed as he would like to keep a respectful distance given the daily hoopla Ball already endures — said he wouldn’t dare impose himself on Ball in the middle of his rookie campaign. “It’s not something you want to mess with during the season,” Martin said. “Sit down after the season and evaluate everything. Guys don’t want to hear it right now, every little thing that everybody else is saying. There could be a right time later on.”
