    he can shoot but can't create the space to separate himself due to his low side cockback shot.

    The best thing that could happen to this kid is a season ending or couple year injury. That would save him and he could milk it for years.

    Otherwise he will be out of league very soon

    He would be able to milk the LA scene for years. No expectations.

    Based on his abilities this is his best course of action for longevity

    so getting paid to actually play and going through something that prevents you from doing so is the best thing for him. Got it

    Triple double is probably the most overrated thing in the NBA.

    With a million 3s being thrown up in a game - rebounding isnt that hard anymore.

    It just isn't hard to do anymore... Can we stop acting like it is something? Everyone is getting them nowadays.

    You sound like bad players are better off injured than playing. What kind of logic is that?

    This is the NBA. If a guy signed a guaranteed contract, he is going to get paid whether he is injured or plain sucks on the court. It makes no difference. If he's on the court, at least he has a chance, no matter how small, to get better and get another contract after this one. If he is injured, he has ZERO chance of getting better and therefore getting signed. Who is going to sign a player who can't play? Ask DMo.

    Lakers overkill in this bitch. They're on national TV every other day and the league is trying to shove Lonzo and his shitty form down our throats. Christ can't believe ESPN is calling every Wednesday "Lonzo Wednesday". So many more teams deserving of the slot.

    Thats just PR talk. If Lavar and Lonzo are serious about being a superstar they should realize he needs ti rebuild his shot. Otherwise Ball's ceiling would be Wicky Wubio/Rajon Rondo.

    It's my fault. I click on their box score after every game to see his shooting %. Those clicks are keeping ESPN in business.
