Default Lonzo ball what am I missing ??

Havnt watched much college ball for ages, so I just checked out a ton of highlites on YouTube of ball..
I don't really get the hype. He has the worst shooting form ever, arm kicks out weird as, just seems like an overly c0cky douchebag..
He does look quick, but is he really an upgrade from dslow? Who I still hate he sucks, can we please trade him for okafor?

I bet he really wants out of Philly, offer that magic can suck his anaconda if they trade for him

He's better than D'Slow, especially compared to D'Slow at Ohio State. A very unselfish player who seems to always make the right pass, but looks for his own shot when needed, and times those well. Not very athletic, but his lateral quickness is good, teamed with his length, makes him a decent defender, potentially a good one.

All this hoopla about him not being a shooter is also ridiculous. He had a higher TS & eFG than Malik Monk, Bryce Alford, Grayson Allen, Luke Kennard & Lauri Markkanen. His release is ugly, but it won't hinder him as his release is only .02 seconds slower than Klay Thompson and .13 seconds quicker than the NBA on average.

His shot is ugly, but it goes in. I'm not sure about him. If he is good defensively, then I think he will be good since his size is bigger than most point guards

Think Kidd.

That's how he plays.

Kidd was a pretty great defender. Seems like Lonzo has a long way to go to match him there.

On the other hand, Kidd took a long time to develop a consistent deep shot, while Lonzo looks like he'll be a 3-point threat immediately.

Yeah, but no midrange game to speak of, unfortunately. I like Ball's passing and intangibles, but that jump shot is going to need some work if he wants to get shots off cleanly in the pros. He can get away with that slow, dragged out release in college, but not in the NBA.

But, he's a natural leader with excellent court vision. I'd take him over D-Russ if I had to choose.

Sure, but I'm waiting to see how the form on his shot translates in the pros. My guess is not nearly as well as it does in college.

A damn brain. Trade for okafor?

Lonzo and dlo will be a great fit. Lonzo can play floor general and set the table for others while Dlo can be the playmaking SG like he was at OSU. Nwaba and JC off the bench.

This draft gets too much love. The dudes at the top have all-star potential, but nobody here looks like a KAT/Anthony Davis kinda prospect.

Get okafor for peanuts then, he's a beast..

That's what I'm worried about, zero mid range game. If he can't get 3s off he's not going to be much use..
doesn't have much wow factor tbh, I said the same thing when I saw dslow first impression. And I'm still not a fan of cement shoe snitch..
Hope I'm wrong about ball, just seems like a real di.ck
