    @Island Jams that his problem people say he need to be more like fox they need to let him develop like the kings let fox and stop pulling him from the game

  • Mike Dagle  4 months ago

    Your absolutely right

  • De’Aaron Fox took a major step this year. I can see him being an all-star in the near future

    The media doesn’t even mention that Fox has total control of the ball and the offense while Lonzo isn’t a scoring guard has to split point guard duties with Brandon Ingram LeBron and Rondo while Fox has complete control of the offense.

    Y’all gonna talk about this after lonzo just had a great game... media has an agenda

  • Shawn Williams  4 months ago

    WOW! one great game while Fox is taking his team to another level and chasing that 8th seed in the crazy west. Something (L)onzo will never be able to do even last year when he had full control of the (L)akers offense. FOX > (L)onzo. take this (L) (L)akers.

    @Andre Riter The dude airballs put back layups and is the NBA's worst free throw shooter as a guard. Lonzo ball ain't good bro.......he aiiiiiight. Decent defender and decent fast break guard. Nothing more.

    Wrong lakers just need to Lonzo Ball play and handle the ball not have him stand for 22 plus mins in some corner while Brandon Ingram shoots bricks and turns the ball over plus 5 the last 6 games

  • M  4 months ago

    Lonzo shooting bricks too FUCKTARD. Guards need to be able to shoot in this league, PERIOD. That pussy can't even shoot 44% from the free throw line (Shaq AND Dwight Howard way better at the line than he is, and they were fucking terrible at Free throws). Lonzo has a BROKE shot and needs to go down to his daddy's JBA league to work on that. GTFO out with your garbage, Ball-sucking analysis. Lonzo is a SHIT player, END OF STORY

    Funny how ESPN waited until the Lakers won a game to talk about them again.... When LeBron was playing they talked about EVERY GAME win or lose 🤣😂🤣

  • GiovannisSanctuary  5 months ago

    I am sick of the superstar age of the NBA. After LeBron, this better be it. I hate the endless coverage on one player.

  • Blackbean Burger  5 months ago

    their go-to is talking about durant/green feud (how it will impact lebron/la), kyrie (how lebron feels about him), anyone else (how they compare to lebron)

    Lol we not gonna talk about how Lonzo the lakers best defender and has scored 18+ except for 2 games since bron been out.....dude had 20 and 12 on the kings 😂 he was ass 1 game and that was on the whole squad not just him. Dude free throw mentality is ass rn forsure. But to act like he a bust is funny

  • googley98  5 months ago

    The dude airballs put back layups and is the NBA's worst free throw shooter as a guard. Lonzo ball ain't good bro.......he aiiiiiight. Decent defender and decent fast break guard. Nothing more.

  • CreationZ Ownage  5 months ago

    Lonzo Ball is a good pg. Lakers just need to let him play his game. I see Lonzo as a facilitator and make every player around him better if he has the ball in his hands. Too bad he got Bron and Rondo on the team so we won't be able to see his potential. Fox on the other hand is a future all star for sure. Love his energy and game. Both will be good players I'm their own perspective way.

  • Hasram Shivcharan  5 months ago

    De'Aaron Fox is gonna be a star in this league, I've watched him this season and he has totally improved his game, he's shooting better from the field, he's scoring more efficiently, he's distributing the ball more, without question an all star in the making.

    Idk maybe if they let the kid be a true point guard it pisses me off seeing B.i and others in that role let b.i stick to his role as a scorer it’s not rocket science 🤦🏽‍♂️
