Lonzo has a bigger impact on winning than AD.



IMHO, Lonzo will make people great no matter where he is. AD will still need a creator for him no matter what team he's on. Makes more sense to pair them than swap them.


Idk about that.


AD is a finisher who has put up major stats and lead his team to the first round.

We were 4th seed with a healthy Lonzo and out of the playoffs when he went down.

It's not rocket science.


I am pretty positive AD led his team to the 2nd round last year...

And AD averaging 30 and 13. What's your point? He needed a guard? Like Shaq needed Kobe?

That was the point, many here are under the assumption that AD doesn’t need anyone to set him up.

Guys, I love Lonzo.
But Lebron and AD are going to be fine.

I would hope they could keep Lonzo with that lineup. But we'll have to see.

You would have about 19-20 million.

Stretching Deng was a dumb move.

Why do you say that. His contract would've ended in 2020 not 2019.

44% FT shooter... shows you the lack of basic bball skills. Iq is nothing without the skills. Jokic has more guard skills than him.

And LeBron average 8.5 last year. Lonzo? 5.4 in the half-season he played.

Lke I said, Lebron will get AD plenty of easy buckets. We don't need Lonzo's passing with Lebron on the floor.

Expiring contract. Would have been much easier to make trades attaching some assets as opposed to getting rid of everyone.

A lot of games without Lebron on the floor.

If Zo is traded the Pels are going to be must watch TV. The Zo Zion show is going to be nice. On the negative side, when Zo is on Sportcenter highlights every night and eventually develops into an all-star, all the Zo haters here are going to be complaining and saying they knew it was a bad deal.

Develops into an allstar? Dude averages 10/5/5. Shoots 40% from the field and 45% from the free throw line and plays half the season due to injuries.


And with AD, we'd already have a proven all-star and not a guy that were 'hoping' turns into one. Da'aron Fox is much more likely to be an all-star than Lonzo is, as he's the better player.
