: Let's not get carried away with Lonzo Ball being the best PG in college bball. He gets a lot of praise for UCLA winning, but his teammates are having great years too and they have gelled as a unit. I'm worried about the jump shot and the lateral quickness at the NBA level. I cannot deny however that he is a unselfish winner that can have a significant impact on any team. He creates an environment of giving that is infectious. That's his best quality! With that being said, I believe that there are 3-4 pgs that may be better:
: Markelle Fultz-High level scorer and very athletic
: De'Aaron Fox- Who outplayed Lonzo in the Kentucky match up and is putting up better numbers. Great quickness, speed and size at PG
: Dennis Smith Jr.- Got hurt his senior year in high school, but very athletic and explosive.
: Frank Jackson- Think he is underrated mostly because Coach K is trying to play too many kids. Very athletic and aggressive.
: These 4 guys are guys I would could consider to be on the same level or greater who are not receiving the same favorable media attention as Lonzo.
If you don't like Lavar Ball, fine. If you don't believe in Gelo or Melo, you're not the only one. But if you don't think that Lonzo is a top 2 freshman PG, you're just hating.
He's changed the entire culture of a program in less than 4 months. Have we every thought that Alford was good? Holiday and Hamilton looks a lot better. Lonzo is a top 2 freshman PG and won't be in a college uniform next year.
