Ball is averaging better stats across the board except 3PT shooting on a better team?

Ball has been really impressive and I fully expect that he will be one of the faces of the league in just a few years. I'm glad to see another player successfully buck the NCAA too.

Suns will regret it too. Jalen Smith looks fine, might turn out to be a reasonable backup big but Haliburton looks like a stud. A lot of Suns fans were super high on him. I wanted us to take Vassell but I did like Haliburton a lot.
