: : : Zone or help, that's it. They have to hide him defensively. Absolutely have to. Has no idea of defensive concepts.
: : Caruso is a nice PG. At this point De Aaron was the choice, but time will only tell. The lack of being able to stay in front of anybody is all on daddy. Dude never cared about defense.
: Is this the men's forum or bitches forum? The jealousy is crazy.
Lonzo plays solid team defense for a rook, both vocal and active. Man-to-man he needs work, but is he worse than Clarkson or DLo at this stage?
DeAaron was a bad fit for the Lakers. This Lakers roster has no proven shooters (until Ingram learns how to spot up). Off-ball, Fox would be useless in halfcourt, while Lonzo can play on or off the ball. Fox would struggle as a rookie and hear daily how Magic and Robb screwed up the pick.
Brook Lopez is the Lakers' best three point shooter, so Fox would see a lot of help defense swarming him as a Laker. Can't live on 20-foot iso pull-ups. Better off playing hot potato with Lonzo, who also has the highest ceiling in the draft. Also, the buzz around town is that LeBron and PG13 are Lakers bound, so Lonzo is a no-brainer if that's the plan.
