    The game has changed. If passing and ball handling were material anymore the Timberwolves would have kept Rubio. And Rubio is leaps & bounds better than Ball right now. Ball needed a uncontested dunk with seconds left to get a triple double. Shooting horrific again. Hart sprained a ankle tonight nonetheless no surprise if he gets 20 minutes plus during reg season. Seasoned scorer.

    Ball is terrible pick. A bust. 1 for 16 from arc. Make him shoot,clog the lane. Don Mclane nailed it when he said Lonzos game wont translate to NBA.

    He is afraid of contact,cant shoot,selfish stat padder

    The great ones back in Oscar and Wilt days never cared about a triple/double or stats...they just wanted to win...

    Ball better listen to his coaches instead of his father...

    Ball plays the deepest position in the NBA in the tougher of the two conferences.

    All-Star in 2019?

    I don't think so.

    I think Heim nailed it. Unless he fixes his shot, Ball looks like another Ricky Rubio.

    Magic doesn't know what he's doing....Ball not the 2nd best player in the draft for sure. I wonder how much pressure the NBA put on Lakeshow to draft Ball....they already had a decent developing pg with a better shot but traded him for a guy who will be a FA after the season. Is Ball really that much better than Russell where you can bypass a guy like Tatum? 35 wins is about right for Lakers. 38 minus 3 games for Magic's player personnel WAR number decisions.

    And the guy who did all the Winning back in those days was Bill Russell.

    One thing I know he will never be able to do, is create his own shot.

    Tatum was #1 on the Celtics Board the whole time.

    They just never showed their hand.

    Which allowed them to make the trade down to #3 Pick in Draft. And pick up Lakers #1 next year, if it falls between 2-5. if not, Sacramento's #1 in 2019. Unprotected.

    2 past undrafted pgs have looked better than Ball so far. Forbes Spurs & Troy Williams Rockets. From this year's draft crop Dennis Smith Jr lays over Ball. Just some early observations

    Ball looked great on the bench last night wearing his BBB shirt. Must be resting for the playoffs.

    Lakers confidence in Lonzo wavering? They met with Rajon Rondo today.

    I'm sure they view Rondo as a backup/mentor for Ball. If I'm the Lakers I wouldn't want Rondo being a mentor, the guy has had locker room issues everywhere he's played.

    True but don't think only gaming forums see the weaknesses in Ball....Caldwell-Pope was signed to guard other teams pg + outside shot. Evident Ball can't guard a tree.

    He had a love/hate relationship in Chicago. Can't see him warming up to a backup role to a rookie in LA either.

    I faded the Lakers tonight, hopefully Ball plays shitty again.

    At a RSW total of 31 1/2 for the LaL, the linemakers appear to be nonplussed by Lonzo Ball.

    I would think UNDER before OVER.

    Poor Lonzo will be a target the entire season, especially on the road.
