Default Will Lonzo Ball make the Rising Stars roster?

Out of the Rookie/Sophomore PG's, I'd say right now Lonzo is probably the 8th or 9th best right now.

If he does, will only be based in marketing.

He's ordering it by winshares, which is a shitty metric to rank rookies.

Lonzo is 2nd in assists, has 83 ast to 30 TO vs Simmons' 86 ast to 41 TO, is 2nd in rebounds, 3rd in steals, 1st in blocks, 8th in threes made.

So even with his shitty scoring he's producing, if he picked up his shooting he would be by far the 2nd best rookie in the class behind Simmons.

Simmons is posting 18-9-8 in one more minute played per game.

He's not playing timid whatsoever. He's attacking, finishing and getting to the line.

Lonzo brings the ball up and gets rid off it. Surprised he has that many TO's in the little time he chooses to possess the ball.

I said 2nd. How retarded are you? Lonzo has that many TOs because the Lakers are 2nd in pace and play more possessions than the other 28 teams behind them.

Simmons is flat out the ROY but he is technically in his 2nd year, he's had a whole year to work under the NBA and learn everything though he couldn't play.

And can you say that anyone from Lonzo's draft class has really produced better? I mean, we all know that he's been dogshit at scoring but he's put up more rebounds, assists, blocks than anyone.

Mitchell has certainly played better.

He will, because of his name and the crowd he brings. He doesn't deserve it. LaVar did a good job on his end, Lonzo just isn't following through yet.

I don't give a shit if he's 1st or 2nd. My post still stands, regardless.
You just said in another thread that benching Lonzo would do no good. But Simmons all of a sudden has the advantage cause he could work and learn for the 3rd worst team in the league?

There are many DNP players throughout the league who ride the pine for the majority of the season(s) (except garbage time against 3rd string)......... but it's doesn't help their games as their career goes on.
