Calling Ingram and Kuz raggedy without Lonzo is probably a step too far by Lavar. That hurts his sons relationship with his teammates, as well as his coach, as well as Magic. It may or may not be the truth, but Lonzo has to play with these guys.

He’s already doing that. In fact he was one of our best 3 point shooters during the stretch of games he played when was LeBron out. There is so much more to the game then just shooting though. Do the Lakers support poor defense and turnovers as long as you can shoot?

Nah, that’s his dad, not Lonzo. Same with Muscala.

Lonzo's already said countless times what his father says is what his father says and that it's his thing.


Doesn't stop people from constantly acting like they have the right to tell Lonzo what or act like they are the authority on what he should do with his father.

People act like Lonzo can control what his father or anyone else does. It doesn’t work that way with the people you love. Lavar doesn’t work for Lonzo, he gave him life. Lonzo ain’t gonna write him up and fire him if he doesn’t shape up. I actually like Lavar. He out of everyone is looking out for his son. Everyone else is looking to use his son for profit.

Aside from shooting the rock, Ball is a good player.



But shooting is a very important skill he needs to develop.

'01 Fisher returned from injury and was a lights out shooter in the post season.

'08 Ariza returned from injury with greatly improved shooting that Phil didn't play until next season.

'18 Lonzo already improved somewhat coming off a knee injury, which no doubt, limited his ability to begin to practice shooting.

'19...I have complete confidence that because of limited motion, most of his practice will be limited to shooting, and he will return even better than we've seen.

Improvements are a process for young players with any sense of desire. Critics micromanage the process/their growth from game to game, or even week to week, making it seem like it isn't happening. If you don't see a kid for a week, you don't notice he's taller, but after the summer, you notice it.

His recovery will allow him to stand and walk first, but limits lateral mobility and stability. He's probably getting a ton of shots up each day and should surprise the critics who keep saying what he better do, or else...

Lavar is so toxic to this kid. Last time I checked Lonzo was a grown azz man? Why does his father feel the need to hog his son's spotlight?

No kidding, watching Rondo play defense is so frustrating, dude puts zero effort on that end.


What’s strange about that is that Rondo used to be a lockdown defender.


Lots of guys were good defenders at 25. These days, Rondo can still do it in bursts, but he can’t sustain it.

Certainly he'll do it in longish spurts in the playoffs. The question is whether he'll do it enough during the regular season so we can actually reach the playoffs.


Can't put this all on Rondo. It was suppose to be a joint effort, and neither him or Lonzo has kept their part of the bargains.

I'm curious to know this from Lakers fans:

If Magic wanted to bring in Kyrie, how would you all, as Lonzo fans, knowing he is young still, feel about that? If Kyrie comes over, you have Lebron and Kyrie having the ball in his hands, so that would put Lonzo in a very bad place.

I would assume that Ball would be gone in that scenario. That’s likely true if we sign Kemba Walker, too.

Zo is a Laker for Life.

Kyrie and Zo will play the "Guard Roles".

The crazy thing about Lavar is that he's right about everything he says.

Kyrie is a FA, so Lonzo doesn't HAVE to go.

Lonzo and Kuzma are my favorite players, and they are a great pair together. I’m hoping they can find a way to keep Lonzo, no matter who they acquire. But,if he gets traded, that's life.

I also really liked Zubac... sigh

Don't need to trade Zo. Have him play SG. Or trade if the Lakers bring ing Kyrie and a SG like Klay.

It would be great if he is ready to come back after all star break. Initial dx is 4-6 weeks. He was injured on 1/20 and first game back from AS break is 2/21. That's almost 5 weeks.
