Imagine if they had a SF like Kevin Durant instead of Brandon Ingram? They'd be in playoff contention.

Okay, I won’t. Rookie season, 20 years old, team competitive most of the evening with the NBA runner up. Glad we agree it’s a solid l

Considering the 76ers traded multiple picks to move up 2 spots and take a guy who seems broken mentally and physically, I'd say it's tough to call the Lakers the laughing stocks of the 2017 draft at this point.

I guess GS sagged on him a bit to play the passing lanes and he made them pay.

...by the numbers, it looks like Lonzo Ball is starting to get a better feel launching from long distance.

The Los Angeles Lakers rookie notched 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting from the field and 5 of 6 from downtown, the latter easily his best percentage of his debut season so far, in a 113-106 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Friday
Can't complain about that^

There are out lyers in every situation...The fact is teams are no longer guarding him on the perimeter, they go under screens set for him (generally a no-no against guys who can shoot). If he gets anywhere near 35%, teams will start taking him more seriously as shooter and get a hand up in his face. But until then, teams will take his 29% and let him fire away. Probably worse than his field goal percentages, he's only shooting 48% from the free throw line.

In the month of December Lonzo has shot 42.2% from the field, 37.7% from 3 while scoring 12.2 ppg, dishing out 6.8 assists and grabbing 6.7 rebounds.

That's not even close to what he said or even implied by that stat. I guess you should discount the stat because it doesn't figure into your argument.

I think that stat implies Lonzo is shooting better, has more trust in his shot, and is adapting to the NBA game.

Is it a hot streak or is he really improving? Not sure we will find out as the season goes on.

However you did mention his free throw percentage. Wow!

If I were a coach and you didn't shoot atleast 70% from the free throw line I wouldn't let you even attempt a three pointer. Embarrassing

Rookies improve greatly as the season progresses. It would be stupid to weigh his first two months greatly

The Lakers are clearly not the same team without Ball. The record is still not good but the overall direction of the team has went down. They have no flow offensively, turnovers are up, shooting pct. is down, the pace is is slower, their not competing they've been blownout the last 2 games and they've lost 5 straight. All of this is the Lonzo Ball effect and his value to the organization as a POINT GUARD!

LaVar is basically putting his sons on a black list for any team wanting to draft his sons.

But we don't have LaVar either... and that is worth it. Lakers are going to seriously have to consider getting away from the Ball family. LaVar publically criticized Luke Walton, and Lonzo didn't exactly stand up for his coach. How can an organization run with that going on??

Ok, but I can't help it. Now comes word that the BBB, other wise known as the Better Business Bureau, has given the Big Baller Brand company (LaVar Ball's) an F.

If you really want a good laugh, go to the BBB website and find the complaint list for Big Baller Brand. It's a great read. And knowing our good friend LeVar like we do makes it just that much more laughable.

Now I only feel about 3% sorry for anyone who would even consider buying something from this guy. He's shady and I can't believe anyone would want to wear something from his company.

Not obsessed, just want to continue to point out the buffoonery that is the LA Lakers. What a huge mistake it was to get involved with the Ball family.

Red14 is so rattled by the balls.

Btw, Lonzo goes for 5/11/11, definitely is Kidd-esque in my opinion.
