Lonzo Ball had a great start to the 2021-22 NBA season. His energy, his three-point shooting, and his defense set the tone for the Chicago Bulls. This is something the Bulls are desperately missing this season.

Lonzo was leading the league in deflections

A recent tweet by the Twitter user @bullsmuse shared that last season, before his injury, Lonzo was leading the league in total deflections. He was second in deflections per game.

Of course, Lonzo’s knee injury would end his season after only 35 games. Lonzo is out to start this season but is expected back by January 2023.
