: : : Hart is better. Way better shooter , better rebounder yes ,way better defender. Sick of Balls game . NCAA champion at Villanova was Hart.
: No more drama, no more watching that disgusting shot, no more bad body language, and hello wins!
: Jason Hart..solid,takes care of ball. 14 points 11 rebs. No ego, no drama, team guy, 4 years of college, smart/intelligent kid. Him and Clarkson run show. Lakers did it with Fisher. Not a phenomenol talent, but he was a team guy with great players around him. Trade Lonzo and get wing guys around Hart and Clarkson. A real TEAM.
Name one actual distraction Lonzo has caused himself. The Lakers' winning % is still slightly better with Lonzo, but never let facts get in the way of a narrative. The 11-4 stretch actually started with Lonzo playing the first four wins, since he has been out the Lakers have won 7 of 11 during a very manageable stretch. If Lonzo returns Thursday, 3 of the next 4 games are against playoff teams and 2 are on the road.
Lonzo's spot-up 3 ball is falling after his first 15 games. He is under contract for three more years on a rookie deal, and over two years younger than Hart and half a decade younger than JC. Nothing short of an all-star (or draft pick + Deng off the books a la D'Angelo/Mozgov deal) would entice the Lakers to move Lonzo at the moment. He plays good help defense and doesn't need the ball to be effective, much like Hart, though Hart is a much better man defender. Hart doesn't shoot as many threes though, but hits at a higher clip; but volume matters today more than in the 90s (when zones were illegal and spacing was guaranteed).
