Default Lonzo Ball

Alright, let's talk some basketball!

Lonzo Ball - what are your predictions? He did pretty well in the Summer League, but that was against other rookies. What's going to happen when he starts playing against the big boys? He obviously makes others around him perform better because he loves passing the ball, but how will he contribute points-wise? I think people are taking it too far when they call him "the face of the franchise for the next 10 years." Will he win RC of the Year? Can be beat Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz?

Give him a few years. Simmons already injured for one year so if Ball plays a game hes already better than simmons was the first year. So thats an easy one.

As to Fultz who was drafted higher than him he doesnt have to be better than him to prove anything his first year as he was drafted after him.

Basically when year is over the Lakers i think wont regret drafting him. How he does in year 2-3 is the real measuring stick to me though. No the first year when he only was in college one year.

The Tatum kid wont carry the load for the celtics but hell be on tv lot as the celtics are a high end playoff team....hes going to be the most efficient scoring wise versus any other high end rookies but his numbers wont be as high.

...and how is he going to keep his shoe business going now that all his potential east-coast customers got their sneakers on the cheap in Miami a few weeks ago?

...and isn't this entire family's fifteen minutes up already? Where's Honey Boo-Boo when you really need her?


Wait...I just remembered Rodman...guess as long as there's enough microphones....

Bless Their Hearts...


Let's talk basketball...NO, let's not.

Fun little poll might be " How long will it take for Lonzo's dad to be banned from Laker games ".

1 week, 2 weeks, ect.

That kids dad is going to be a mess in the stands, and it won't take long for him to melt down, or one's sitting by him to complain about his behavior.

I guess I don't understand why he hasn't put his dad in check. I know your dad is your dad, but when you become an adult you should be able to understand what's happening around you. It's clear to anyone that his dad is living his life through his sons. When you're an adult there is a distance that a mature person would put between himself and his father. Maybe it's an issue with maturity.

He's only 19 and in today's world that's still a kid. Plus this is an exceptionally dominant Dad.
