I found it painful to watch Luke keep Randle on Embiid at the end. Just leave the guy on an island. Bogut at least has size and defensive IQ to match, even if Embiid was going off all night. We're running a small ball lineup and not even taking advantage of running in transition to make Embiid work on the defensive end.

Man I hate doing this because hind sight is obviously 20/20. But imagine if instead of DLO, we got Porzingis and instead of Lonzo, we get Tatum:

Clarkson
Tatum
Ingram
Kuzma
Porzingis

ouchey mouchey

But for real, I think Lonzo will be fine. Needs to get out of his own head


Pre draft I was on the josh jackson train and he's been meh so far offensively. That's when I figured dlo would be here. But I was also of the mindset, before jumping on the Lonzo train, that I'd prefer we draft Fox if we went pg.

Have to admit I do check foxs box scores from time to time.

With that said, Lonzo is our guy and I think we just need to accept that at least until around spring 2018 what we are seeing from him now is what we are gonna get: more downs than ups, erratic shooting that is painful to watch, great passes, turnovers, and solid rebounding. There will be no ROY and he will not suddenly become consistent before New Year's Eve. He is trying to adapt and going through the growing pains a lot of our rookies have gone through (honestly among the guys we've drafted the last few years kuzma has arguably shot off the starting line the fastest). Lonzo is nowhere near a finished product...let's see where he is at by 2020.

I just REALLY hope it's sooner than later though- I am rooting for the kid and watching his offensive struggles pains me.

He was just talking about Lonzos lack of aggression and general body language not being on point.

Thanks. Can’t say I disagree.
