    Show Of Hands For Any Non-Lakers Fans Who Are Rooting For Lonzo Ball

    I try not to be a hater but, damn, this kid is a tough one to root for... .....thanks to Dad. My guess is he'll never be able to score in the NBA (not with that shot!) but he'll be an average to above-average pass-first point guard. Based on where he was drafted he'll be considered a bust.

    If the Dad ever started bangin' Kris Jenner it would officially mark the beginning of the apocalypse.

    I can't stand a father who is outspoken. The son is just a basic player from college. Won't go anywhere unless he puts on at least 20-30 lbs of size.

    That's just ridiculous even saying. Kid needs to put on 30 pounds? You can't make this sh#$ up.

    Perhaps he needs to stop looking into the mirror for 3 hours every day... and use that time to hit the weights?

    I feel bad for De'Arron Fox because he's going to absolutely SUCK in the NBA.

    Oh shit seriously??? I was under the impression that when Mag and Rob were hanging in the war room high-fiving they had just got themselves a lock down defender at #2. I guess they'll have to reevaluate.

    Well lets break down what you said. You say you cant root for a guy because of his father, well how weak and silly is that. Then you say he wont be able to score because of his shot, Im guessing you mean the way it looks, you dont find it aestetically pleasing, well neither do I, but he's done well with it, Reggie Miller didnt have a beautiful shot either besides its not where you start the shot rather where you finish, he follows through and ends up pretty much like any shooter. Where in the draft do you think Ball should have been taken.

    I won't be rooting for him but I won't be hating on him either. He looked phenomenal for most of his time at UCLA when I watched him play. The dude can drain it from deep, attack the basket at times, and is an extraordinary passer and player while on the fast break. With how the Warriors have changed the game in the NBA over the last few years, his game really translates well to today's NBA. with more spacing and more outside shooting. I expect him to be an above PGs in the NBA in a few years even with his poor defense.

    it's going to be very interesting with his strengths and weaknesses playing in LA

    but let's not hate on the kid because of his father...... i feel bad for him and may root for him because of his father. and then i'll hate it when father gloats.

    I start to think about rooting for the kid, and then the image of his annoying dad pops up and I want it to go away, so I curse Lonzo.

    If the kid can ball the kid can ball, his father or whoever else has nothing to do with the product on the court. Just the nba version of cam newton

    He looks like he can be a walking over

    he can pass his ass off and his scoring ability is only going to get better.

    Lonzo isn't going to be earning any 1st team defense votes anytime soon.

    You're really drinking the kool-aid if you're mentioning Lonzo in the same breath as Reggie Miller, one the best shooters of all time. Reggie's shot was a bit unorthodox, but he wasn't a righty shooting across his body from the wrong side. Ball averaged 14ppg in a weak college conference. For cripes sakes, Pete Maravich averaged 44 over 4 years, without a 3 point line or a shot clock! Lonzo cannot shoot or defend (yet). Shouldn't have been drafted so high. More hype than anything.

    You guys are always twisting words. I said nothing about Lonzo being in the same breath as a player as Miller only that their jump shots are not orthodox. What makes you say he cant shoot, Im wondering if you have even seen him play much, he shot 73% from 2 at UCLA, when is the last time a guard did that. 41% from 3, good also. If you ask anyone his positives passing and shooting are gonna come up. Not sure what Maravich has anything to do with this, on second thought now I kinda do.
