Fat Joe asks LeBron about what makes Luka different, and fans can see the response below.
"His size. I mean he’s a 6’8 point guard. He’s 225 pounds. He has the ball on a string, and more importantly, his vision. That’s why I love him- his vision. He can control a game. He doesn’t even have to shoot."
