Zo has no excuse not to finish at the rim at will with his athleticism...

Just realized we’ve had the #2 pick the last 3 seasons

If none of them end up as allstar caliber the Lakers have learned their lesson- tank harder.

Getting a backup PG must be a priority in the offseason. Having the likes of Ennis/Caruso next season is simply unacceptable.

I would like to see either the Wolves or the Thunders get knocked out. Just so I can feel good about the Wolves collecting all that talent, and still going nowhere. And PG13 not making the playoffs with the BIG 3 in OKC. Hehe.

Lakers missed out on KAT & Porz in the 2015 draft, and going to be hard for Lonzo to even sniff Mitchell or Tatum offensively. Outside of Ingram, which was a 2 person draft in the 2016 draft, number two pick just isn't an ideal spot to be at in the lottery. Lonzo has great instincts and elite on defense, but it's a perimeter league and if you can't score even though the rules are set up for perimeter players to succeed, you are almost useless in comparison to the elite scoring PG's in the league today.

If we can't get a decent veteran; draft Jalen Brunson.

Since the 1996 NBA draft, only Steve Francis, Tyson Chandler, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Durant, and Victor Oladipo have made All-Star teams as number 2 draft picks. Since 2008, here have been the number 2 draft picks: Michael Beasley, Hasheem Thabeet, Evan Turner, Derrick Williams, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Victor Oladipo, Jabari Parker, D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, & Lonzo Ball.

Could have been worse.

Just low b-ball iq, poor defense and embarrassing free throw shooting.
