Not even close. A lot of Melo's exposure is because of Zo. He shoots a bad percent, doesn't have the transcendent court awareness, and doesnt bring the intangibles to the table that Zo does.

Melo needs a coach that will make him play D. Until then he won't amount to much NBA wise me thinks

LaMelo has so many bad habits it's not even funny. His shot selection makes Kobe puke. It's gotten to the point where you can almost guess when he's going to pull up from half court. He needs a coach who will hold him accountable more than a coach who will make him.play D IMO.

The question is, are we talking AAU videos? If so, DONT. That is not real basketball at all. Unless you have a team full of ballers. Melo's AAU team is not all that since both of his bros are gone now - 1 at ucla and 1 wearing a lakers jersey. He's their only goto scorer and he's their only point guard. thats a bad situation waiting to happen when your only PG is the guy that likes to score the most points. and your only scorer has to be your pg. with no other real talent to even make a coach say "PASS THE BALL." at least at the high school level. if it were college that would be different. guys should be good enough to do some things where you could make them a bit better if you ran the team better as the pg. not so in high school.

He has one. I'm guessing you've never seen LaVar laying into him. He has, and with brutal honesty. The other players probably are happy that LaVar doesn't show favoritism just cause LaMelo is his son.

Both Lonzo's brothers are total ball hogs and cherry pickers. I have seen them play. I think both will struggle in the NBA if they make it. They are total "chuckers".

Why should we care right now? Lamelo is 15 freaking years old.

However with that said, he will probably being a different player than Lonzo. Lonzo is transcendent with his gifted passing and making everybody better ability, LiAngelo is a bruiser, LaMelo is a scorer probably.

But again, judging a 15 year old kid is pretty insane imo.

LaMelo's going to come to a fork in the road after high school: One path veers toward Steph Curry, the other toward Curly Neal... we'll see which one he takes.

Lonzo could be a transcendental talent and you don't get those very often. I think the last rookie with this much hype was that guy (the taller one) playing in Cleveland so no, I don't think Lamelo would be even close to Lonzo even though I've never seen him play before.

So what's his excuse for still doing the dumb stuff he does?

LaVar does say the right stuff and get into all of his boys. But like I said, he needs a COACH to do these things. Sometimes, it's easier for a kid to learn from a coach than it is from a father. Dad just seems to be screaming and beating the stuff into his head.

Melo's athleticism seems far inferior to Zo's. Does he have his brother's knack for elevating his teammates? He seems more like a chucker from what I've seen.

Are you seriously thinking about This?

Lonzo is the only ball player in that fam.
The rest need a day job as Lonzos servants.

I think ppl feel zo is some kind of a of a project his dad made.
Laval just lucked in. The rest if the fam are average humans.

Lamelo aka Pamela is not a baller. He will fade and the truth
Will catch up to him. I'm guessing the drugs will get him.
Liangelo seems like a psycho to me. That dude gives of
bad vibes to me. He is also a nobody. And nobody cares.
Liangelo will end up in jail eventually.
I hope lonzo is spared any drama because he seems to
be a decent person and a great talent.

No, and he's a completely different player. Unquestionable talent, incredibly bad shot selection, should be interesting to watch him once he gets to college where he likely stop taking pull-up 40-50 footers.

He's definitely a future NBA player, though.

Drugs? Jailtime? Where are you getting this stuff?

The day melo realises he is a average player he will self
medicate to bridge the chasm between his dreams and
reality.
Liangelo...his body language is future drive by shooter type.

These 2 should quit balling and start some accounting and
Business studies courses. That's the only way they will ever make
Money.

In actual games that matter it's not even close. I go with Lonzo.
