Back to back! :noway:

But Wingo! Those should have been OUR worst shots and bad drives!


I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens when Frank guards him.


My guess is that Frank can stop Fox and DSJ. Lonzo might be a little trickier.

Yeah, I hadn't thought of Lonzo who improved with each game in SL.

Can't wait to see Spiderman.

He's going to routinely pick Lonzo's pocket so much that Ball won't be able to drop dimes.

1-6 FG, 0-3 from downtown and 1-3 from the line.


What's crazy is that I was still curious what people were saying and I went to Twitter to check. No joke people were still saying **** like "can't believe those stupid Knicks passed on Dennis Smith!" Even after a bad game..


For PGs, decision making is is key. I don't care how athletic he is, is he can't make smart decisions with the ball, it's a waste. That's what Phil was talking about when he spoke about the draft before he was fired.

Pretty much my thoughts. I would be excited with DSJ, but I already have Marbury remorse. I see how dominant PG's, though extremely talented, are basically like small SF's, scoring from all over, but not making the team a team, not making the team better. Have you seen Ball play? Damn, he is doing what I thought he would.

Frank, to me, might fall somewhere in between, at least the first year. Once his body fills out, he is going to be even more athletic, but damn, he sure has a shot and plays incredible defense. Sad he didn't play in SL, but usually sharing types (minus Balls great play), usually don't shine in SL, more of a free for all play.

Oh, and then there is DSJ's knee, I just don't want that worry...

Right now, most of these posts are based off the Summer League, which "displays" less defensive effort than a pick up game at W4th. :lol:

Again, let's wait for Game 49 next season....then get back to me.

Frank better be good.

I'm liking DSJR, so much Starbury & Stevie Franchise rolled into one. The football tuck on one of those first drives immediately gave me flashbacks

Also, that Kuzma kid has the potential to be really special. So long and versatile, no idea where he came from.

Fun games though, Ball makes it look pretty effortless out there

Don't know what it is, but ball reminds me so much of Jason Kidd. Their games aren't identical, but then awkward release and overall presence and arrogance seems damn near identical.

Lakers SL team has great chemistry already
