I don't believe any metric which says that Lonzo is among top five U25 players.

Lonzo is a beast.


Nugs in the correct position on this list. Scary for other teams the untapped parts possible for mpj and Vanderbilt and even the rest. Scary for the Nugs to wonder if you can ever maximize that potential if there not playing time
