Video: Lonzo Ball did a punch pass for a quick assist vs. the Mavericks
Throughout the ongoing Summer League, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has dazzled the fans watching him by showcasing his all-around game. He is currently the only player that has recorded a triple-double in this year’s tournament so far, impressing many in the process.
During Sunday’s game between his team and the Dallas Mavericks, the second overall pick of last month’s draft showed his passing prowess by completing a quick punch pass to advance the ball immediately to his teammate for the easy fastbreak dunk.

Ball’s unique pass definitely shows his high basketball I.Q. and flair. But the true test will come at the start of the regular season as there will be more at stake and teams will be fielding their best lineups.
However, if Ball’s performance this summer is any indication of what’s in store for his rookie year, the Los Angeles faithful will have a lot to look forward to as their team could be ending their rebuilding phase soon.
