Really not his fault his team is trash. The guy did all he could against the celtics with no limited spacing he had. He took the celtics to 7 games despite his own teammates and coach sabotaging him. They would literally crowd the paint and bring their defenders along with 'em instead of standing behind the 3 point line, biggest offender of this was Jabari.

His J hasn't been the reason why he hasn't made it past the first round, it's been the team. This year is going to be different though, they lowkey have a sqaud.

Isn't it funny how already Giannis has the same story and agenda as Lebron?

Team is "trash" and "not his fault".

Isn't it funny how both are piss poor at shooting outside 5 feet?

with the way the league's great teams stack up. Middleton/Bledsoe as help is absolutely not special. His team next year is nice with Brook at center now too but it's not even close to championship level unless Giannis has one of the best years ever for any player

And yet it's funny why most posters here are crucifying Lonzo Ball for this "can't shoot" reason.
Lonzo is top 2 in almost ALL stats among rookies and league PGs.
Assists, rebounds, blocks,steals, defense etc etc and yet they view him as a failure, right?

Lonzo is a guard who scored 10ppg on 42% from 2 and 30% from 3. This is beyond abysmal especially when you consider the space he was given to shoot by defenders. And then when he gets to the line he shot 45% there as well. He may well improve this year, but based on last year, you'd pretty much take anyone in the league as a scoring option over lonzo.

This the idea that Lebron is #1 is crazy. Dude just got swept with another allstar on the squad. Name another player that was #1 in the league and got swept in a series that same year?

Yeah. Lebron has been destroyed by Durant twice in the NBA finals, a humiliating 1-8 overall head to head record in the last 2 finals. Itís time to move past the fallacy that Lebron must be the indisputable #1 in the league, itís a new era now with Durant and harden leading the way. Lebron had his glory days but now heís old and his reign is over.

all the perimeter players in the top 10 GOAT are elite midrange shooters(bird, jordan, kobe) unless you include the colluder in there but these guys think shooting is overrated.

OMG, you basically expounded on the obvious fact that everyone including my dog knows that Lonzo can’t shoot
Tops in passing, rebounding blocks, steals and defense among rookies and PGs in the league but but but he can’t shoot, right?

You said itís foolish to rank Giannis lower just cbecause he couldnít shoot .....that heís a beast....well Lonzo is a terrible shooter, tops in assist, rebs, blocks,steals etc among rookies and league PGs and yet heís regarded as trash. Not comparing but merely using your logic. But because you hate the Lakers and Lonzo it doesnít apply, right?

Point is, lonzo is straight trash when it comes to getting buckets. Like all time bad. Criticizing his shooting is not the same as criticizing Giannis' shooting. Giannis is a 7 foot beast who can score and dominate a dozen different ways, but lacks range on his shot. Lonzo probably struggles making layups in training drills.
