I agree that everyone overhypes Lonzo but he did have a stabilizing effect on the team. Kuzma, Clarkson, KCP offered nothing on offense... only so much he can do in that situation.


sorry....I didn't see it....we were terrible on both sides of the ball when Lonzo was in the game....Walker got by him at will....


Walker gets by everyone at will.. he's a match up nightmare for a longer PG. If those three score at their normal rates... it's a decent game.

They rarely matched up at all, and Walker didn't get by him on at least three possessions I watched. I thought Ball actually did a much more credible job on Walker defensively than KCP (but in fewer possessions, admittedly).

You're crazy if you didn't see this game and thought the offense wasn't running a lot nicer with lonzo. So what if it doesn't amount to more assists


We looked incredible out there with Zo on the floor.

Wait, you're judging a guy who was on limited minutes coming back from injured list.

Guys that did exactly what they paid for


DLO is the exact player this team is missing (when healthy).
He can create for himself and others in the half court.

He would put everyone else in their proper place.
ZO leading transition with DLO as a shooter.
DLO running half court with ZO cutting and shooting.
BI playing with less pressure to carry Offense


I was against the DLO trade (think I still am) but DLO hasn't played this year so he'd have been no help.

The problem is the Magic and Rob did not bring in complimentary talent and that id exactly what many of us were saying this summer. We lost our 3 best scorers (Lou, DLO, Nick) who also happened to be the 3 best shooters.

We won games last year because we would get hot and teams couldn't match. This year, we have no consistent threat-- Kuz is the closest thing and he's a rookie.


How are you so sure he would've got hurt if he was still here

If DLo isn't in Brooklyn, why assume he would be injured?

don't do that....he was matched up on him a large part of the game....same thing was happening when he was matched up against Lamb

I don't think that happened. Kcp was his primary. I don't recall a possession where kemba got by ball on a drive. But I may have missed it. But at will? Thought I would have caught that if it happened more often.

You make a good point on the assists

Zo started on MKG. Luke had KCP guarding Kemba the 1st half. That's when he got hot. 2nd half Luke switched Zo on to him.

Yes, people overhype the immeasurable “Lonzo effect”

But Lonzo seemed matched up with MKG most of the time. Thought he looked good for not being 100% on his first night back.
