https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=QtinegxZark

Quote:
Woj: “What did you learn about the NBA as a young 19 year old with the Lakers?”

Dlo: “It’s a man’s league, for sure. A lot of guys come in young, thinking what they’re going to do right away and not understanding the process and what it takes to get there. I didn’t know what it took to be a pro in general. So what every naysayer and every critic said about me, it was probably true.”

Politically correct answer. He also said that the trade was the best thing to ever happen to him. You know getting away from this cancer environment.

Wish we were able to see to see him grow up and transform his game. I'm in the boat that says he wouldn't have been to become the player he is today if he stayed here but man. He's killing it this season and when he was here he had some memorable moments.

We needed a 3rd Russell thread in the Lakers lounge for this? When he already has his own thread in the general lounge?

This kid's overrated and his story is uninteresting. And this is coming from a guy who really liked him and was upset he was traded.

He's just a higher volume low efficiency shooter who shies away from contact and doesn't go to the line. All he's done is shore up his defensive effort a bit and taken more shots. He is now the natural projection of who he was before. Let's not act like he hit some insane inflection point.

Nice to see him taking accountability. That's the first step to redemption. I wonder if Magic and Pelinka will do the same.

In fairness he has shown improvements.

His 43.2% field goal percentage is a career high (up from 41.4%), as well as his three point percentage (36.6% up from 35.2%), and his free throw percentage (79.7% from 78.2%).

The largest area of improvement though is his playmaking, he went from 3.3 to 4.8 to 5.2 to 6.9 this season. His assist to turnover ratio is also vastly improved at 6.9 assists vs. 3 turnovers this season, his previous best was last season when he was at 5.2 assists with 3.1 turnovers.

Considering he's still only 22, I'd expect him to continue to improve.

The word “loaded” has other meanings.

Loading...... loaded.

He had good stats with us in only about 28 minutes per game. His assists would of been higher had he played with more spot up shooters like Joe Harris and less ball handling isolation players like Lou Williams and BI. It should of been BI that was sent out in that trade, not Russell.

Man, if the blood clot thing never happened, BI would have silenced even more people.

BI shipped out? Sorry Scoobs, but you haven’t been paying attention. BI was playing like an All Star after the break. Averaging 27 points a game or something. He can play both sides of the court. You’ll be crying when he’s ballin’ out for Charlotte with Jordan and Kup in a few seasons.

Damn...I can't believe I missed the game tonight... I couldn't see around DLO's big middle finger to Magic.... as he sends the Lakers to the lottery and ends our season.

Magic is a clown as a GM.

You're really on a Lakers forum celebrating a non Laker while trashing the organization?

(bleep) Anthony Puccio by the ways. With his fake mafia name. He slurps up DLO all day while trashing the Lakers. Stick to your Nets blog and worry about your own team. Be (bleep) professional.

If 20 shots to get 21 points and 6 careless turnovers is the big middle finger, I'd hate to see his little middle finger. DLo is just how I remember him.
