Not going to happen. If you want, you could just make like a tree and leave.

Was pretty entertaining watching Beverley punk Lonzo. Nice bounce back against the Suns though, who have a serious aversion to defense

LaVar is an azz for sure; and good for Beverly for shutting down Ball on his debut; but itís getting harder to deny Lonzo is going to be a special player.

Lavars mouth will sooner or later take over. To much pressure on on lonzo and he will fail. And or his daddy will get him "accidently' hurt

If they redrafted today, does Lonzo go #1? Fultz's shot looks way more broken than his.

I don't think so but that's just my opinion. A solid starter for sure. Maybe even an all-star bid or two. Don't see him being as good as say Curry or that tier of player.

I was initially inclined to say no as the 76ers already have a non-shooting PG in Simmons and theoretically Fultz can play next to Simmons, Lonzo not so much. But the 76ers also took Embiid, Noel and Okafor in back to back to back drafts. So my answer is yes. And then figured it out down the road and trade off someone.

And here is where I'll dispute his "value". Lonzo plays 35 minutes per game, and has the ball in his hands alot. He's going to get the assists and rebounds just because he's on the floor. Like Westbrook last year, the triple double stat is one of the most overrated in sports.

The Lakers are going to play him a ton of minutes to build up his stats. At some point he'll need to put the ball in the basket.

Everyone who plays 35 minutes a game gets 10 assists and 10 rebounds. Nothing to it.

Curious to see if he mentions, and/or praises, Ben Simmons on notching his first (of many, I expect) triple double.

Two different type players Curry is a deadly shooter that plays point Lonzo is a pass first playmaker. Curry has five career triple doubles that's not what he does. Ball will get 5 before christmas. Styles of play,apples and oranges.
