Anybody know if Lonzo worked out with Gunnar last summer or if he worked out in Chino Hills? And what he intends to do this summer?

He worked out with Gunnar after the draft.

He still eats stuff like bowls of cheese though lol. Needs a serious diet change.

Also I think Amoila is a lot better than gunnar when it comes to bball, I hope it's possible for Lonzo to get with him

Lonzo, Kuzma, Zubac and Bryant should all try to work with Amoila this summer with Julius and Cousins

Are the missed open threes and poor FT% due to his form or does he need a sports psychologist to help him deal with the mental pressure he's facing?


Nah, that shot is broken and couple that with the fact that he basically has no mid-range game and is poor finisher...:/

Luckily for us Lonzo does everything else pretty well that he is bust-proof imo.


The fact that his FT% was so much better in high school with the same weird form makes me think it's more mental than technical from the line. http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/lonzo-ball/Xoz-LfTvEeKZ5AAmVebBJg/gendersport/basketball-stats.htm
'

Am I reading that right that Zo 's best shooting %'s across the board were his Freshman year (that site only has Freshman and Senior year). Someone can correct me, but I recall Freshman Zo's shot was more normal.

Normal shot Zo > Funky Shot Zo

Very glad to hear it. I hear Hart is playing, but I would prefer he not also.

This summer is very different than last summer, we need to all just be in El Segundo. By we, I mean the players...I will stay on my couch of course.

I can see the reasoning behind Hart and Bryant though. Hart will get a chance to expand his game and try things.

Bryant's not quite ready yet

He should at least change something in his free throws. It's always rushed.

He needs to follow the advice of an experienced, professional trainer - one with formal education in sports medicine and nutrition - and not his pops.

heard Woj on Golic and Wingo this morning say something similar....said he needs to listen to the Lakers, and not "Daddy Ball" this summer....seemed kind of aggressive for Woj.

What a joke.

Unfortunately, it seems like Lavar raised Zo to be a beta who never speaks against him or challenges him.

The way I see it is that he is correct in that he does "owe" his parents to a degree. I have no doubt they made many sacrifices to get him to where he is and the opportunities that he has.....so I get that. At the same time, I do think he will need to reach the point where he understands the best way to help his family is not to do what or how they always prefer, but just become the best basketball player/professional that he can which will create the biggest opportunities for everyone in the family. Lavar is always going to think he knows best...it is Lonzo's responsibility to actually choose what is best.

The speculation is that Wojís main Lakers source is Pelinka and if thatís the case this certainly lines up with what Magic and Pelinka told Lonzo in his exit interview about this being the biggest summer of his life and needing to follow in Randleís footsteps for working out and regimen.

Pretty sure Lonzo shot 35% from NBA distance during his UCLA time.

Most volume by far.
https://www.sbnation.com/college-basketball/2016/12/12/13914212/lonzo-ball-ucla-shooting-range-steph-curry-nba-draft

29% I think was Fultz.


It was even better if you take out the 5 heaves at the buzzer. Watching the video of him you can see how confident he was at UCLA. He just needs to get that back and heíll be fine.

Every parent should sacrifice for their kids. Thats a part of being a parent. You choose to have kids, you need to sacrifice your life to raise them.

Also a part of being a good parent is letting them know that they don't "owe" you anything.

Lonzo making the NBA should be enough for LaVar. Just seeing your kid make it in this world should be enough.

LaVar really needs to live his own life instead of living vicariously through his kids.
