And Lamelo really is a taller Brandon Jennings.
Yeah I didn't get why people were drooling over him after the last game. He has some good attributes but definitely doesn't look like some drool-worthy guy. More like a bust than he does a gem.
You can't be serious.
LaMelo is averaging 13ppg 7rpg 6apg off the BENCH shooting 41% and 35% while RJ Barrett a sophomore is shooting 36% FG and 18% 3pt
this is comedy how Knick fans try to downplay a superior prospect when our very own can't even boost barely a better FG% than LaMelo's 3pt% and people said "LaMelo can't shoot".
35% 3pt is very good for any first year player.
Along with the 7 rebounds...when in any lifetime Brandon Jennings averaged 7 rebounds? This is crazy. LaMelo producing record breaking triple doubles and we have people here thinking he's not drool worthy when our own prospect can't even score without looking like a inefficient slob who should go back to Canada before bringing that trash to NY.
Lavar Postell post better shooting percentage, I thought us Knick fans should be humbled.
I've watched LaMelo every game this season. He's legit. Especially for us Knick fans who come from a world of Channing Frye, David Lee....tbh the best dude we drafted was Danilo and LaMelo right now is producing at a rate no Knick prospect is familiar with. I'm hoping Toppin becomes a more productive player than Barrett and Immanuel Quickley is the real deal.
But the LaMelo downplay is so 2020. People mad at the kid for whatever reason but it's 2021 and LaMelo has been a HUGE reason along with Gordon Hayward while Charlotte is a team people can actually watch and see exciting basketball.
Whatever flaws LaMelo has is usually the same with most rookies, strength, defense, awareness. It's a non issue. I really think the LaMelo downplay is wild unnecessary because if he was a Knick dropping a triple double this whole board would lose it's mind. We don't have that kind of talent and Charlotte made a great pick. LaMelo has zero bust potential.
