Nickeil Alexander-Walker changed Lonzo Ball within the beginning lineup for the New Orleans Pelicans final evening in a transfer that could possibly be everlasting.
Lonzo Ball sat out with an harm and can in all probability miss the ultimate recreation in opposition to the Lakers as nicely, which is able to probably give NAW one other probability as a starter.
Followers shouldn’t get too enthusiastic about NAW’s 30 level recreation in opposition to a shorthanded Warriors workforce however his play this season has made some surprise if he’s the starter of the longer term and whether or not this workforce actually wants Lonzo Ball.
Personally, I feel one of many largest missed alternatives of this season was not attending to see the 2 of them play a lot collectively, particularly after it grew to become clear that Eric Bledsoe was not the reply.
Accidents and inconsistency stored us from seeing what could possibly be the Pelicans’ backcourt of the longer term.
With Lonzo Ball up without spending a dime company and NAW nonetheless locked up for just a few extra seasons, it’s not solely truthful to ask which certainly one of them the Pelicans ought to preserve however after NAW’s robust end, it’s also truthful to ask which one goes to be the higher participant sooner or later.
Each gamers are younger, with Lonzo Ball being lower than a 12 months older. Neither participant has been very constant or sturdy, and each are thought-about excessive ceiling expertise, so we’ll have to take a look at another elements to judge who would be the higher participant sooner or later.
Will the New Orleans Pelicans preserve each Lonzo Ball and Nickeil Alexander-Walker? Which one will finally be the higher participant?
Let’s have a look.
