    Lonzo Ball on thin ice with the Lakers now.

    https://nypost.com/2018/07/04/there-is-a-war-brewing-between-lonzo-ball-and-the-lakers/

    Lonzo and pops trying to keep an injury as a secret to not get traded. But now that Rondo is on the team, Lonzo will have competition. LaVar is most likely mad.

    Lonzo and Lavar leaked the knee injury story to avoid any trades.

    My son went to school with Fox. He comes from a hard working family and that kid works hard. I was telling everyone that Fox is going to be a star. I'm bias but I think the Lakers made a big mistake.

    This is the working link - https://nypost.com/2018/07/04/there-...nd-the-lakers/

    Lonzo and especially his loud mouth dad are completely worthless.. I hope the Lakers dump them both.. Saw Lonzo interviewed the other day and he's verbally slow mo and basically brain dead.. It's like he never read a book in high school or college..

    Rondo absolutely deserves the starting roll on this new Laker squad and I hope he gets it.. If Lonzo stays in a Laker uniform I say sit his rookie assss down...

    Love it when people who watch sports talk shit about players doing their thing

    Stop watching sports if you are going to knock everyone who plays

    It's Lavar that causes all the flack for Lonzo...he certainly hasn't done his son any favors in that regard.

    I don't know how any professional basketball player can shoot under 50% from the free throw line. Free throws are basic basketball fundamentals 101.

    When shaq and deandre jordan out shoot iu from the free throw line theres an issue

    when hack a lonzo ball comes into play bc their “star” point guard is horrendous at free points he doesnt deserve to be there

    hell me and chi archie like 10 years ago did a free throw shooting competition and both of us shot well over 75%

    such a joke

    Lakers should cut the cord and get rid of him NOW while he has expected value
    but they won't
    because the NBA today is a media entertainment complex 1st and a sport 2nd.

    I don't understand why the Lakers left themselves with only so much money to work with now? Reports coming in that they should wait for Leonard until next year. Simply stupid. You can't wait on a star like Leonard. Sh#$.... IMO from Lebron's age to Leonard's age.... Leonard is more valuable. Seems like the Lakers are going to be left with James... and that's it.

    This will cause James to cry and pout every fukking game now.

    Yes

    And next season we will still be making several plays a day on nba games...evem though we know it's entertainment

    Don't blame the nba....blame the people who pay to watch it and bet on it

    I actually think he could have developed into a solid player but his dad turned his career into a circus. Sad really, what kind of loser is so desperate to be relevant that he willing to kill any chance of success his children may have had??

    Far as lonzo the player goes I absolutely believe that ft shooting just got in his head with all the pressure on him thanks to his loudmouth pos father. Think the kid shot them around 70% in college didnít he? Not great but also not embarrassing like it was last year. No getting around he has one of the ugliest damn shots you will ever see but Jason kid was a pretty horrendous shooter til late in his career and he did fine! his court vision special and handle good enough he just needs to get in gym to strengthen up so he can finish stronger around the rim. I think if he was in a normal situation without the idiot father nobody be killing him and would see the potential. Unfortunately that isnít the case and really up in air what his career ark will be like.

    I'm starting to think this current Laker squad now with just James and Rondo can up the young talent guys that showed promise last year.. I expect both Ingram and Kusma to play even better then last year with Lebren running the show in other words..

    I fully expect Rondo to play great with Lebron since Rondo is really in his basketball prime and played great last year... Then you got the one two punch with the big guys in Lopez and McGee.. BIG BODIES... 2nd unit with Stephenson, Ball and Pope doing it off the bench..

    Maybe they don't need Leonard to get real deep into the playoffs as is.. Lebron will bring it you know that..

    I can't believe people even thought Lonzo would be a good NBA player in the first place. Guy is terrible. With how his family acts, I have a hard time seeing him work hard to improve his game too.

    No I don't call this current Laker squad a super team, not even close.. I do call this a playoff team that probably gets past the first round in the Western Conference playoffs..

    Lebron is Lebron come playoff time, he usually ends up in the finals with average talent surrounding him in the East... We all know these Lakers don't get by the Warriors to get to the finals though...

    We'll see????
