Default Lonzo IS and Isn't a bust

Depending on realistic expectations he could actually be a decent player.

Comparing him to Curry? He's absolutely going to be a bust.

Comparing him to Rondo? He could be a Rondo type player. Not really a great scorer but someone that can move the ball up the court fast and get everyone involved.

We see how hard it is to win if you have KD's offensive talent. How the hell will Lonzo win in this league with his offensive game? He can only be a winner if he has a ton of talent around him. That isn't a super star. Jason Kidd barely won anything because Dirk is a legend and had one of the best runs in playoff history.

Lakers are the bust for drafting him number 2. He shouldn't have gone top 10 at all.

Strangely, a Lot of n2 Picks have not reached the expectations people had for them

Back to Lonzo, if he was just a middle classman from Milwaukee, we would marvel at how Lonzo is having a nice season or a rookie PG (And i'm not even a Lonzo fan)

Didn't he nail 6 threes the other day?

The dude is 20 years old.

Time is needed before one can make a sound judgement call.

Lavar busted a nut and molded that nut into a top draft pick.

Now that's efficiency!

If not for this kid's stupidity, i would have found a 2nd pick for Liangelo as well
Now i'm not even sure he would be picked on a Lithuanian draft
Should have remembered him to stay in his lane

Potential to become Rondo without the attitude. That's a dream player for coaches and teammates.

Where was this thread last week or the week before?? Oh right, Lonzo was shooting lights out and so it didn't fit the narrative then.

Kobe Bryant averaged 7.6 points his first year.


Calm down people.


Lonzo will be a star in the Nba. He is currently averaging 10.5 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds as a point guard. His rookie year.

The sky is the limit for Lonzo Ball.

He is no Rondo. The man can actually shoot really well. He was struggling mentally because of all the noise with his father and alll that media bs. You can argue that's weak especially for the 2nd pick in the draft, but sh1t happens, he's human and he's only 20 years old. Once he finds his Mojo, which it seems he has found a groove lately. It's over.

Comparing him to Steph Curry is a tough standard to meet. He's definitely more explosive and athletic than Curry, but as far as shooting Curry is the best ever, so chill out people. As an over all player he can match his legacy or come close...potentially - my opinion

His dad did say he was better than Curry, but he was just hyping his son up and being the best dad he could be by instilling confidence in his kid. Shoot for the moon,land among the stars. It's motivation for Lonzo., Although Lavar is a bit obnoxious he has good intentions. At the end of the day based on what we've seen Lonzo does have a lot of potential to be great.

Lonzo is better shooter than season numbers shows, I believe he can score more and with better efficeincy (let's say 0.450 from the field, and 0.370-380 behind the lane)

Yet he is no Curry - he is different type of player.
