I know it's only summer league, but Kuzma looks like he has the potential to be a major steal.

Yeah, didn't shoot near this well in college. Hopefully this isn't just a hot streak.

That'd be my major concern. Only shot 32% from the college 3P line last year and he was just a 30% 3P shooter in his three college seasons. He's been lighting it up from three in summer league, though. If it carries over into the regular season, then the Lakers definitely got a huge draft day steal. However, there is a very good chance this is partially just a hot streak against inferior competition.

Regardless, he's looked phenomenal so far. A long, rangy 6'9" wing who can stroke it from three? The Lakers may have very well found a late 1st round gem.

:lol: :lol: haha, lonzo destroyed dsj in the first half and had a double double with fries 2-3 minutes before the end of the first half. every hater focused on lonzos offense, but he'll be alright. lonzo coulda had another triple with dsj being the victim

This was the Lonzo game I've been waiting to see. Low shot attempts but highly highly efficient scoring, assists left and right and low TOs. I have a hard time seeing this dude ever running a struggling offense.

I mean, if you're saying that you can't judge him because it's summer league, then you can't judge any player that plays in summer league.

All skin is the right skin.

I get why Clarkson gets some hate. Irrational Laker fans make it easy to hate Laker players but he is a good 46 th pick.

He can score, but that's about it. He hasn't really improved on anything since he came into the league. He gets tunnel vision to the extreme. Hopefully Lonzo can break him of those habits but I doubt it. Serviceable player, if he could develop a consistent 3 point shot he could be a Jamal Crawford instant offense type guy (best case scenario).

You mean EVO? Since last year. It's pretty hype actually. Fighting games are the only E sports i can really watch.

Our full roster didn't play the Celtics. Our best player didn't play against the Celtics, so nope don't buy that.

I heard he's been shooting like this since the combine or draft workouts
