James showers praises on Lonzo Ball after breaking his record.

Cavaliers small forward LeBron James has heaped praises on Lakers youngster Lonzo Ball after becoming the youngest ever player with a triple-double in the NBA.James during the Cavaliers’ shootaround in New York congratulated the Lakers rookie on topping his record and said Ball is going to be “probably a great point guard” if he keeps working.“It’s motivation,” Ball said when told of the comments at the Lakers’ shootaround before the Lakers’ game against Phoenix. “Personally, LeBron, if he says that it’s like an honor. So I’m gonna work and keep trying to get better every day.”On Saturday, Ball became the youngest player to post a triple-double in NBA history when he had 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds to go with three steals and three blocks in a loss at Milwaukee. Ball posted his first career triple-double at 20 years and 15 days old, passing James, who held the record at 20 years, 20 days old back in 2004-05.“I definitely think back to when I was that young,” James said according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “There’s not many games that I can remember when I was 20 years old or 19 or even 18. So first of all, congratulations to him.“I think he’s going to be a really, really good point guard in our league, probably a great point guard if he continues to work on his craft, which it seems like he does. They got a good one.”
