    this also means, he has little room for error. he's gonna get roasted if he starts slow, hits a wall mid season or doesn't finish as strong

    Point isn't about how highly regarded he is with absolutely nothing to back it up, the point is that Thread continues to say how the media has a bone to pick with the Lakers, when it is clear as a highland desert sky that the media loves everything Lakers.

    This is but the latest example.

    Saying he'd be the best pure PG since Kidd is ridiculous. CP3 and Nash are both pure PGs. They may not play the style you like, but they are pure PGs. They set up the offense as well as anyone and that is the primary job of a PG.

    Lonzo looks good so far, not going to lie. I think he obviously has to fix his horrible shot, not that he won't make some of them, but he'd be horribly inconsistent, and if the Lakers have playoff aspirations you can't have your PG/best player be an offensive liability, or at least unreliable offensive player when you HAVE to win 4 of 7. His vision is great, his rebounding is OK. He's not overly athletic but I can see him be a PG version of a Brandon Roy where he can use his smarts and positioning to create situations that are advantageous to the Lakers.

    That said, I think he will be lit up regularly on defense though. The Lakers Lakers signing Caldwell Pope is actually one of the more underrated moves in the off season.

    i didnt say i didnt like their style both are very entertaining to watch but i prefer my PGs not always insist on the assist coming from them.
    i did not say i agree Lonzo is best pG since those guys just saying like them they value the pass ahead which is PG play on its most pure form. where you can dicate pace without the ball in your hand ...when you will outlet even if you only get a hockey assist.
    another example of pure to me is Kiwi ...when locked in he doesnt seek the highlight block or gamble for steals if his,job is to lock down Durant harden Lebron he focuses on his man and though a good theif doesnt gamble like westbrook or CP3 for hero steals or leave his man to pad rebounds or hero blocks.
    Before he had to carry the offense he played d in its purest form ...

    you have your definition ofvpure i have mine doesnt mean those guys arent great but id rather have kidd or magic over cp3/nash even though both shoot better than the big PGs

    With the amount of hype this scrub is getting from Media, he'd better be Magic with Curry's jump shot from day one to justify it. And it's all because he's playing for Media's favorite team.

    If Lonzo was drafted by the Suns, Kings or Magic, he and his loudmouth father would already be forgotten. It'd be all Ben Simmons, all the time.

    was going to post this tbh


    lonzo is not highly regarded like the OP said. he's simply hyped and the reality show has definitely put him in a pedestal not seen since LeBron.


    forget the '17 draft class. its ben simmons year.

    Before he was on the Lakers, he and his dad were already colluding to force their way to the Lakers. Media was just laying the groundwork for the next few years of Laker hype.

    There are 56 players in the league you'd take over Wiggins right now? At least dude has been on the court. He was a beast in the 2nd half of last season.

    Looks like ESPN is now pushing Ball in its promos. They have to justify having the Lakers on TV
    so much so they are making him rookie of the year .
