Bottom line is both Ingram and Lonzo are not as good as other players in both drafts. I want to really like Lonzo but there are at least 2-3 players better than him from that draft.

Lonzo's motor is troublesome

Kuz gives me Clarkson vibes.


It really sucks that none of our young guys, even the ones we traded, have exploded into stardom. seems like every team with young guys has that guy that's for sure gonna be a superstar or is already an all-Star. Did we just draft the wrong players? Do we just suck at developing youth? I wonder if Tatum would be the amazing player he is if he were playing with us? How would BI look on Philly instead of Simmons? I really think we just suck at developing our guys. How can you miss (by miss I mean our guys not looking like stars) on 3 straight #2 picks?


I’m sorry this is hyperbole at its finest grab a box of tissues son and sack up lol

BI and Zo are barely 21 years old


It's not hyperbole. It's projection.

I like Zo and he seems like a good person but I'd trade him for Tatum, Mitchell and Markannen without thinking twice and maybe even Fox

But Ingram, aside from Ben Simmons, who would you rather have?

So the 2nd player selected in a draft ends up the 3rd or 4th best player in said draft? Alert the authorities.

I know it's cool for the NBA fan to hate on Wiggins and yea he's disappointing, he did drop a career high 47 on us. We're not in the position to assume that we would have had a better chance.

Not trying to be “cool”

Yeah he dropped 47 on us.

2 years ago.

I’m talking about now. When he obviously has bad chemistry with Butler. And they don’t play or fit well with each other

Butler was terrific tonight but he's a career 33% shooter from 3 and was shooting 33% from 3 this year before he went off on us.

It's not something you will see every night... and we would have won this game if both he and Towns didn't go off, and Lonzo, Hart, Kuz didn't go cold at the same time.

If we could get Butler for BI, Lonzo, and some draft picks heck yeah...probably would take Kuz or Hart though to make it work. Would rather hold out in hopes we can get KD or Kawhi in FA next year.

Jimmy has already said Lakers wasn't one of his choices.

The lack of defense isn't just because of the roster, the effort is missing on that end and until they see that and take strides in correcting it, teams are gonna continue just raining shots all over the place.

I think Lonzo can't deal with having Rondo back there. Has played bad when Rondo has been in his rearview. Ingram stepped up.


Agreed it's messing with his mind and his rhythm. And Luke again plays them together in 4Q. WTF??

Zo is a professional, I don't think this is an issue with him.

Walton has a hard on for Rondo. He shouldn't be playing more minutes than Lonzo. Also Rondo and Lonzo shouldn't be on the floor at the same time. Luke's rotations suck!
