Can I ask you why you are ignoring the absolute abysmal shooting numbers?
he’s shooting 36% from 3 for the season..I’m wondering why you consider that abysmal..especially when you factor in his massive improvement year to year

Clearly you have a bias against the Ball brothers and Andrew Wiggles ...We both know basketball and we’re both wrong on a regular basis..Just admit Wiggles can D up and that you don’t really know if a 20 or 22 year old LaMelo Ball will be good at it


Talking about LaMelo, not Lonzo. I like Lonzo.

You completely ignore Lamelos shooting numbers, when you tout him.

Lonzo is a kid I'd like. He plays defense and is a great passer. He's also fixing his shot from 3. Reminds me a bit of Kidd.

I don't like LaMelo at all. He will find a place in the league, but for the Warriors, we need efficient scoring, not volume chuckers who dominate the ball.

It's possible, but if I had to put money on it, I'd bet on more of a Larry Johnson-type career. I don't think he's going to hold up over time, mostly because of physical issues with that kind of size and vertical, and a game that relies on it to a large extent.

he was 18 years old playing what.. 12 games? .. vs grown men? Come on 10..I see the 7 rebs and 8 assists and the shooting I’m not all that concerned about..if he goes to the warriors the kid is going to get coached up BIG TIME


The most talented players in this draft are Edwards - Ball and Wiseman. ..Edwards you can like and be wrong or hate and be dead on right..your choice..Ball Ihavnt seen much of him except I know he’s way way way more talented that the prospects you guys are going on about here

I know he’s tall and sees the floor brilliantly ..love those types..his attitude is the question mark but I’m not taking the guys you like with a top pick

4-27 on spot up shoot attempts.

Broken ugly jump shot.

No defense.

Cherry picked his way to 100 points in high school.

Some times the little brothers feel and play entitled. I get that vibe from him. Lonzo works his butt off.

I get that he can pass, and the rebounding numbers look nice, but need to see that with big Leaguers before I feel like that's a thing.

To ball dominant for us. We need elite shooters or defenders, he's neither.

He might end up having an ok career, but I don't want him for us.

I don’t see the ball dominate part..but I do see the brilliant passes he makes (which his height gives him a great advantage) ..he reminds me of Lonzo

Lonzo's made 14 3s over the last 2 games.

There's an assistant coach who works with him daily and has rebuilt the shot. Seems to be working

Against elite wing defensive teams, the Rox will get pummeled. It warms my heart to watch it.

Baynes gets the start for Ayton and at one stage had outscored Portland himself 19-16 (5/5 3s)

The Kenny Atkinson departure from New Jersey reeks of Kyrie for some reason

He will be able to start a lot more drama with everyone afraid of getting KD involved.

These LA Lakers/Clippers games look like a battle of mercenaries. What a bunch of artificially made teams.

Man KD really **** up leaving here to team up with Kyrie. Man I wish he would have stayed but if he wasn’t happy here than nothing we can do about it.

Hope he finds whatever it is he’s looking for.

Watching Clippers and Lakers march it up and down then look for switches so they can go one on one....ugly hoops. Where is the passing...? Where is spacing? Where is the pure shooting? There is no flow...Bucks, Philly, Lakers, Clippers....all playing more of a 90's ball again. I think it's primarily because all of these teams lack team speed and a traditional quick point guard.
All four of these teams seem to play a bully brand of ball based on Lebron, Yiannis, Lenard, George

I have NO doubt KD is already regretting this. I can see he and Irving imploding around this time next year....starting to blame each other have getting the coach fired first.
