: : What would be better competition? Playing the top level travel ball circuit or JBA? Travel Ball circuit certainly has more social media exposure and fans. JBA prob be out of business soon.
: : It would be awesome to see Lamelo in the NBA at 18years old. The question has never been about his ability to score the ball. It's will he be able to defend?
: : : Lamelo Ball has developed the necessary lead guard skills and is now a can't miss pro prospect. He needs to continue such development to become a super star. His shot selection and decision making is much much better. At this point though, It makes more sense that he put up 20 or 20 assists games in the JBA rather than 40 to 50 games.
: : : The prior criticism of his shot selection and playmaking abilities were legitimate but kid deserves a lot of credit for improvement in those areas of his game. In fact, Lamelo is a better ball handler, shooter and finisher than Lonzo abd is passing is comparable.
: I got some more crack for you crack baby.
LaMelo will make the NBA. Too early to say if he's better than Zo; although LaMelo may be a better scorer, Lonzo is a glue guy on a team, whose effect on a team is best measured in Real (adjusted) Plus/Minus (basically the efficiency of his teammates with and without him, aka chemistry within a team). Some hate RPM, but it works for comparing players within a team, if not around the league.
