I think he's going off SL and preseason


Even at UCLA, he had a bruised hip in the Tournament

There is a big difference between being hurt or being injury prone.

Greg Oden was INJURY PRONE, its like people don't seem to remember that Kobe always used to get hurt basically every game but that didn't make him injury prone he just played through it cause of his work ethic.

What Lonzo is going through is basically a random injury that can happen to anyone and it did happen to Dennis Smith Jr who ended up leaving the game after spraining his ankle.

Up until this point, he gets hurt consistently. The narrative can change of course but he is injury-prone. His body is yet to grow fully to take the bumps and he'll need to learn the subtleties of the game to avoid hits. Random or not. LOL. I'm not demanding anyone to agree. You or anyone else is not going to sway my opinion until Lonzo stays on the court CONSISTENTLY.

He gets hurt but so does basically everyone in the NBA, no one plays at 100% they just don't announce it because Basketball is a grin and grind league and you need to play through some injuries.

This is why I need to stop doing all-nighters on animation assignments, because my eyes completely missed "get a" and "of" in that statement.

Play him. He's got a week after tonight to recover. He's 19. The starters need some reps together against another nba team. He could at least play 15-20 min

Is 15 mins that important to keep an injury around?

Damn injury prone Lonzo. Should trade him, Bogut, Lopez, Nance and anyone else who gets hurt. We need players that don't get hurt to go along with the 8% body fat.

No, because if 3 was on the same team as 1 he wouldn't be on the list. 3 gets a chance to be a chucker on a team that will let him take a shot a minute.

Trust me there won be any chucking going on on number 3's new team. He's in an offense with actual ball movement now.

That and if Number 3 and Number 1 were teammates, Number 1 would be feeding him wide open shot opportunities all day and vice versa, so there's that too.

We have a 1 and a 5 and potentially a 3/4. It could be worse.

Lol I did, just throwing out a funny to see who catches it. The season is about to start. What can I say, I'm in a good mood. Can't let these egos bring me down.
