    Can't go right and shoot.

    id take the left every time and run him in to shot blockers.

    He will have to learn how to shoot those mid range shots.

    He reminds me of Kevin Martin with better court vision.

    Overrated and will bust because of his flaws and his loudmouth dad. Will be the typical draft lottery bust who eventually sheds the bust label after a fresh start. Sort of like Austin Rivers, Otto Porter, and maybe Dion Waiters if he continues to progress.

    Cant stand his dad although i understand what hes trying to do....which is promote his brand. That said i watched Lonzo's interview after UCLA's win yesterday and he seems humble and praised his teammates repeatedly. He also happens to be a terrific player. I became a fan yesterday and hope he does well. Now if he can just get his dad to put a sock in it.

    I see alot of kevin martin in him. Should not have any issues getting his shot off in the league. Better playmaker though. Can score in a variety of ways.

    So he'll be the #1 overall pick? Sounds like Lebron Jr.

    There was a segment on the family on ESPN during the first weekend of the tourney. Maybe like 10-15 minutes.
    Dad is a nutball, obviously. They have their own brand already... Big Baller Brand... and he's clearly out to promote that.

    But the kids definitely come off as humble.

    But attitude or personality aside, Lonzo clearly has a boatload of talent, and I suspect him to be a competent NBA PG, with all-star+ potential.

    Jason Kidd with a better shot at the same age.

    Well stated. He was outmatched tonight though. Fox did his best Dream immitation by schooling a hyped opponent that had just taken a prestigious award.

    Meh. It happens. Not even Jordan was always the best every game. People always forget Jordan did lose in the playoffs too, many years in a row. It's sports and basketball.

    Fox was great. But he wasn't amazing the prior game against Wotchita St.

    And Ball still needs work. His own scoring is the biggest part of his game he needs to improve. It's why Fultz had been consistently rated #1 this year.

    But Fox does have a ton of upside too. He's like the opposite of Ball as a PG.

    If the Lakers get Ball , that'd enable Russell to play the 2. That would be a good explosive backcourt offensively. Unfortunately it'll be awful defensively.

    skew me? Ray Allen was an elite shooter. Ball cannot get that ridiculous shot off when guarded.

    Fox wrecked him and its exactly what the rest of the league is gonna do because he dad won't shut the hell up.

    He's not that good man. He's Ricky Rubio 2.0
