    Clearly lonzo isn't as good as he was hyped up too be an isn't aggressive or assertive an seems comfortable taking the ball up court passing an stands there an watched everybody else do the work an if he gets the ball an shoots he misses an has no confidence or rhythm in his shot an only two seasons with Lakers an gets traded too pelicans but his style of play an with LeBron in LA everybody should of known he was getting traded

    It’s this simple Lonzo is a good all round player it’s just his shooting look at his number he’s good but than u see that bad shooting percentage we wouldn’t be talking about lonzo on the bench if he were a good shooter

    Steven A's getting worried?? And Max still thinks he's going to be great!?!? Come on! Lonzo was an obvious bust from the get-go! For a Number 2 pick!?!? Huge bust! All you had to go was see him get his ass kicked in the NCAA playoffs last season...He's an average player at best!

    I've been saying it since before the draft, the Lakers should have taken Jayson Tatum at #2. Lonzo Ball will never be anything more than average to below-average role player. Jayson Tatum is a superstar in the making!

  • Explosive Muhammad

    Lonzo is not that good FOR NOW , he'll reach out but I hope his father's words won't drag him down. I am not a Ball family fan.

    Lonzo really needs to improve his shooting. Great passing alone is not enough for a #2 pick.

    Lonzo doesn’t score points but he does everything else which is why he is being compared to Jason Kidd, and on top of that he possess an incredible basketball iq, maybe even Steph Curry level. He won’t be an MVP maybe even an all-star but he will be a good player

    I see so many people hating on lonzo but he's still a ROOKIE. He's still gotta adjust to playing at the NBA level. He has to have time to learn his teammates play styles and adjust accordingly. You can't expect every rookie to be a star right off the bat. Personally I'm looking forward to seeing him grow and see what he can do.
