No kidding. The Washington Huskies lost more games by more than 15 than they did within 5 on top of the abysmal record.

That weird setshot of lonzo is gonna get exposed sooner then later

Funny, because all advanced metrics point to Lonzo being a good shooter. Here's his attempts from 3 (yes, the college line but if you saw UCLA play more than once, you'd know that he took the majority of his threes from around and beyond the NBA arc) versus Fultz and some other "great" shooters. Now, this doesn't mean Lonzo is the best of the bunch but it is an absolute joke to say he can't shoot.

Lonzo: 41.2% from 3 on 5.2 attempts per game, 67.3% TS, 66.8% eFG
Fultz: 41.3% from 3 on 5 attempts per game, 55.8% TS, 53.5% eFG
Monk: 39.7% on 6.9 attempts, 58.5% TS, 54.3% eFG
Markkanen: 42.3% on 4.4 attempts, 63.5% TS, 58.4% eFG
Kennard: 43.8% on 5.4 attempts, 63% TS, 58.1% eFG
Grayson: 36.5% on 6.5 attempts, 57% TS, 51% eFG
Bryce: 43% on 7.5 attempts, 63% TS, 59.7% eFG

Myth debunked.
