    J Okafor for Ball and a second
    Lakers do it to correct a mistake
    Philly does it to have 48 MINS of elite playmaking

    It's getting harder to defend the young man, but I still got hope he can turn things around. Sucks his dad put all this pressure on him to be the next Generational player. Dude can't sneeze without someone saying he's doing it wrong or someone sneezes better.

    This dude is a fraud. Conveniently leaves out Tatum so he can support his narrative and then when gets called out for it he calls Tatum a "system player" who plays for best coach in the East. Get the fack outta here bitch. LOLakers would trade Tatum for Ball a the drop of a hat if re-draft occurred. They facked up taking Ball over Tatum and a few others period.

    The kid (nice kid) is a terrible shooter and relatively non-athletic. Non-athletic and can't shoot, no thanks.

    It seems like he can't get away with his terrible shot mechanics anymore. Not against NBA athletes.

    Can't finish at the rim either against NBA athletes. Dude is slow AF and while he can finish above the rim he's not an explosive leaper. Best case is a MCW or a Rondo type player.

    Not making an excuse for Lonzo (or for their team) but maybe the back-to-back was rough for him. Lakers had a game in Denver yesterday while the Rockets were in LA resting and practicing for a couple of days.

    Harden, CP3, Ariza, EG, Mbah a Moute, Tarik Black, Bobby Brown all have LA connections. Except for the rare occasions the crowd actually made noise, it was more like a home game for the Rockets than the Lakers.

    He's the next (insert name of random college player that ended up working at a car dealership after not getting drafted and not being good enough to play overseas) just less talented.

    He simply isn't ready for the NBA, the pressure of being the #2 pick and the media spotlight of LA. He should completely revamp his shot and go to the g-league to work on it. I feel bad for the guy at this point. His jackass dad has set unrealistic expectations.

    that shot just isn't going to work in the nba unless he's WIDE OPEN.

    he's better off playing like ben simmons for the rest of the year (no 3's). the problem is he sucks finishing around the basket too.
