: : : : Loved what we saw last night at the Golden 1 Center. Lakers take care of business on the road. Lakers begin to look as though they're establishing their identity under 'The King'. We still have our doubts about Luke Walton's ability to truly coach a club of this caliber and whether or not he has what it takes. Time will tell if Magic pulls the plug. Zo's inability to develop a mid-range game and get into the paint is costing him dearly. After high school playing all them damn AAU games, he has Zero mid range game or effective drive to the bucket to wreak havoc. Doesn't even seem like he wants to be on the court most of the time...walking around looking like he's depressed, showing no emotion as a PG. It may be better if The Ball Brothers take their show Overseas and make a ton of money playing all together on the same team. They could make a killing.
: : : : Bagley looks special.
: : : Both Bagley and Fox are very nice young players. Of course it's Sac so they'll probably find a way to ruin things. After all those years in the lottery they were bound to eventually find a few keepers.
: : : As for Lonzo, a few of us on this board were screaming that Fox would be the better pro. Zo can't finish, can't drive, can't run a half court offense..not to mention the broke shot. There's no dog in that boy either which you really need to make it big in the league. It's a mans league and Lavar can't fight his battles anymore.
: : Totally agree. Lonzo looks lost and disinterested. But I have been saying that for years. He is soft. Can't get to rim like pg.do (like Wall, Westbrook,Lillard,etc.). Defense is fair at best. LeBron signed 4 year deal,so he will dominate ball for 4 years. Lonzo can't play off ball well. Can't run half court offense, no mid range, can't get to rim, not a shooter. WTF? Who are you? All of those horrible AAU games with no defense..fools gold. Lobs, 3's, press,run and gun, Daddy Ball. All coming back to bite him. You think it is an accident that LaMelo wants to play college now? LaVar sees what he created with his Lonzo. A lot of faults in his game, so he wants LaMelo to play for a good program (Duke,etc) to learn "Real basketball".
: And yet Lonzo is a positive in certain lineups. But he's bad with Kuzma and Ingram as the 2 & 3. On ball defense is below average for a guard, but gets in passing lanes and actually is very disruptive. His open three is solid but only hits when there's good ball movement, something the Lakers starting lineup doesn't have.
: Overall he's disappointing for a #2 pick.
SHut up and keep your day job ,Lonzo is clearly outplaying Rondo his numbers are up he is bigger and stronger than last year.Rondo has lost a step and he still cant score plus he's lost a step.The reason for the pouting is that Walton is making it personal and not giving kid his minutes earned .
