Not remotely as good as Iggy's pass. Now that was a play.

Hes 20. On a winning team as their best player.

Let me rephrase this you’re not winning a championship as LaMelo as your first option.

I'm old school. I'm not doing that play in a close game.

It's crowd pleasing and can ignite a run but can also lead to plays like this -



It came against the same Orlando team so maybe he just wanted to make up for his previous blooper. :lol:

Another highlight ruined by camera change to under the rim. There must be 100s of them ruined by this, and it makes me mad every time i see it.

I'm not saying he's Magic Johnson, he wasn't a top option on the Lakers. Later in his career Magic was the top scorer a couple of times. I could see Lamelo leading his team in scoring a couple of times later in his career.

Pretty amazing the haters have had to resort to settle on stuff like this as their hate. 2 years ago he wasn't an NBA caliber player. Now he's not a first option on a championship team. What a meteoric rise

Sky's the limit for Lamelo. He's still younger than the leading rookie of the year candidate this season.

That between the legs pass was completely unnecessary... but it looked hella smooth anyway.

Both teams were doing a lot of talking. Here's Suggs signaling Rozier is too small to guard him.

Floppy hair, deep range, nasty floater, ridiculous highlight plays for their own sake, obnoxious **** dad. He really is our generations Pistol Pete Maravich. Awesome guy to have in the league. Remember folks, this is an entertainment product first
