College age - rookie year.

Lonzo is much more fluid, agile, and explosive, with better dexterity

Better athlete.

He doesn't quite have Kidd's instincts on both sides of the ball... but neither does anyone else, maybe ever. You don't have to be Larry, Magic, or Kidd to be a top PG prospect. His instincts and intangibles are better than Paul, Westbrook, Wall, Lillard, etc. He can't shoot pullup jumpers but neither can James Harden.

My open letter to NBA GMs: Don't over-think this.
Not even close.

Kidd is one of the GOAT pgs, esp since PGs depend a lot on rangz (and he might be seen higher alltime if he was a dynasty team guy.) I'm not ready to put ball up there, but I'm really surprised they'd say he won't be successful, like he won't be an all star.

It's a good bet to bet any player that they won't be a 'superstar' tho. You gotta be like Bron, KD, Duncan, Shaq.. to be a lock superstar.

I'm not convinced dude is gonna be that kind of a player. That's pretty high, but a very good all star, sure. All NBA... yuppp..

Are you retarded by chance?

Lonzo is 19 so I'm comparing him to Livingston in college. It's not even close.

Whether or not you're right about Livingston/Ball, you are bullshittin dude.

Livingston skipped college. Nobody that knew Livingston back then wouldn't have known that off the top of their head.

Only real reason why I compared Livingston and Ball to each other was because they're both tall lightskinned point guards with afros.

Good lord.

Major idiot bullshitter exposed.

But getting back to the topic, Lonzo could be ok...his peak could be similar to this year's Durant, a 3rd option on a championship contender.

his shot form is terrible. but watch this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0vaLqTw9pw&

he pulls up from Steph Curry range multiple times and splashes

Lonzo Ball is the absolute perfect fit for the Sixers where he could be the third option behind Embiid and Simmons. If the Sixers get him they will win a multiple championships in like 6 years.
