Wade, on his retirement lap with the Miami Heat, doesn’t think James will miss with his next goal either: the task of bringing a championship to the Lakers. “They should be very confident in all they have got on that team,” Wade said. “The way (LeBron) is able to make shots and take over a game, it gives you confidence that you have a threat. “Then there’s (Kyle) Kuzma, Josh Hart is a hell of a player, the right kind of player. Lonzo Ball is the kind of player who doesn’t need to score to have a great game. Experience is a key for them and as the season comes on they will get there.”
“Basically minutes, trying to make sure we don’t overplay him and then also usage of the ball in his hands,” Johnson told SiriusXM NBA Radio. “We got a lot of ballhandlers so we feel we won’t overuse him in terms of his ballhandling and also every play has to run through him. I think we got proven scorers — Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram … and then when you have two point guards like Ball and Rondo, we don’t have to have LeBron having the ball in his hands all the time.”

Advance scouts who have been tracking the Lakers report that Ball frequently becomes an off guard when James is in the game with him. It’s enough to wonder if this arrangement is truly their destiny of playing together in the future, especially if Ball is able to improve his outside shooting and show a willingness to drive the ball, as he has in recent games. Ball suffered a sprained ankle Tuesday, which may slow him down temporarily and add even more ballhandling duty for James in the near term.
