A season ago, LeBron James congratulated Lonzo Ball on becoming the youngest player in league history to record a triple-double, breaking James' record. On Saturday, James and Ball set some triple-double history together in the Los Angeles Lakers' 128-100 win over the Charlotte Hornets.
James (24 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists) and Ball (16 points, 10 assists, 10 rebounds) became the first pair of teammates to record a triple-double in the same game since Jason Kidd and Vince Carter did it for the New Jersey Nets in 2007, and they are the first Lakers teammates to do it since Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1982.
"I mean, anytime you can put yourself in the conversation with Laker history and all the guys who came through this franchise, it's pretty special," James said. "And tonight is another example of that."
