    What GP said is nothing but the truth. But when he said that Lonzo should be looking to score by lay ups and dunking rather than shooting threes, is a little unfair and it has nothing to do with GP. Luke Walton made and pressured the whole team shoot 3s. There’s even a clip of him saying “keep shooting 3s, even if they don’t go in, just keep shooting them”. So I feel like it’s not that Lonzo WANTS to shoot 3s, but rather he is told and pressured to. I can’t wait to see this new Laker roster. Lebron, Rondo and Lonzo, three really smart and high IQ ball players, I can’t even begin to think the plays they’ll make. And all the mesmerizing young players like BI, Kuz and Hart, the new rookies and even Lance and JaVale. The only part of the team I don’t feel comfortable with, is the coach. No disrespect to Luke, I just don’t see him being able to coach or “tame” this team. With so many high IQ players, and so many players that are known to be tough to coach, I just don’t see him lasting as the HC.

    He has above averageness NBA. If Rondo on his game and he and Lonzo compete for PG starter. Lonzo can't touch Rondo

    It is a luxury to have players play multiple position and defend; thus, the coach employs "switch everything"...switching on D is the easiest system to miscom, etc...that's why teams NOW build and get players that can play multiple position....

    basketball is not about scoring it is about over all play passing,rebounding,defense! TEAM PLAY..
    Lonzo will be nasty 3 to 5years from now. Lonzo is 20 years old ,kobe is not good at first season, there are too many greats that in the first season isnt good.

    Lonzo is just a taller Ricky Rubio. Very good passing, but Ben Simmons has better vision and is the best passer since since LeBron came in the league

    Yes people were afraid of Jordan but lot of people talked smack to him. Reggie Miller, Vernon Maxwell, tim hardaway, bird, AI, etc. I hate that narrative of everyone was afraid of Jordan. Argue all you want...

    Even if lonzo recieves hate at the end of the day he is good player and gary is right he needs an attacking mindset to take his game to another level cause he do anything else than attack tjats the beauty of lonzo he is a pure trip dub player and all rounder if he unlocks his attacking

    Love his take on guarding Jordan and how everyone switches now. I hate it. I blame the Warriors.

    Do not sleep on Lonzo. I believe that he can be a good pg that is capable of playing a good role to get his team wins. He will not carry a team, but i see him helping a lot in with a star by his side.
