I just remember thinking how lucky the Lakers were getting a hometown kid groomed to play basketball.
I envisioned his jersey hanging in the rafters after 20 years with the Lakers.
I also recall the argument on his shot mechanics pre drfat.
They all said it was broken, were gonna change it.
But I remember looking at his one year ast UCLA he shot over.400 from 3 and thinking he ain't that broken.....
His quiet demeanor is probably my favorite thing about him.
Old #2 Norm Van Lier would have LOVED this kid.
He's not making the all-star team, and he sure as hell isn't starting the all-star game. Let's just squash that hope right now. DeMar and Zach are clearly ahead of him and so is Vuch, and we're not going to have 3 all-stars, let alone 4. Even if that wasn't the case, he has no merit for making the all-star team.
He's averaging less than 5 APG and can't do anything on offense besides shoot 3s and as such he's barely shooting above 40% from the floor. I've said it before, but if his three ever comes back down to earth his flaws will only become more obvious.
Having said that, his defense, outlet passing, and spot-up shooting have given a huge boost to us, so don't mistake me for saying he's a bad player. He's just not an all-star.
