People here complain about small guards, but Steph, Ja, Brunson... all seem to be doing fine.

It's small talent that is the bigger problem in my mind.

It will take time but, IMO if Scottie keeps improving, he will have a nice NBA career despite his size.
He probably won't get much action with the Laker squad this season but any time at that level is beneficial.
The G-League experience and development will go a long way in his overall maturation.
Earning this award shows that he is motivated and dedicated to be the best that he can be, it's all part of the process.

He has the skills to feast on weak competition, but it remains to be seen if he can compete at the NBA level. He needs to work on his shooting and a bunch of other things. Can't really see him getting any time with the Lakers this year.

I like Scottie but he's not on Westbrook's level. Right now SPJr is nowhere near ready for prime-time NBA competition. He has many flaws with defense being a major concern.
We're so guard heavy that he won't get many chances this year. But in time, he could develop into serviceable 2-3 string backup point guard somewhere in the NBA.

No but IMO he could become a decent reserve PG in the NBA.

Both teams empty their benches with the Lakers up 15 and just under a minute-30 to go.

Scotty Pippen Jr. checks in in front of his dad and Cole Swider gets a chance to play on the big stage for the first time in forever.

I hope he makes it. Nice story. But I don’t get too excited about g league numbers or awards, since a quick gander at the G league mvp list is pretty much full of non nba players. In the g league you look for nba clay with development needs. Guys with marginal physical talent for the nba but a lot of skill can tend to eat up the green real prospects in that league. But they have limited upside when faced with actual nba speed size and skill combined.

I agree with the part about people doubting him, because of his size. For a PG, his size isn't unsual, and shouldn't be a problem. SPJr. is listed as 6'1" to 6'2". Other guards of comparable size, along with the aforementioned names...?

Chris Paul
Mike Conley
Patty Mills
Kyle Lowry
Trae Young
etc etc...

Whether SPJr. makes it in the league will have nothing to do with his size. And, everything to do with his impact...or, lack thereof...on an NBA floor. Real talk, despite the Lakers really good scouting department, I doubted the SPJr. pick. He just real unsteady to me. But, he's been looking real nice of late. I'm really interested to see if he, and Cole, can add to the Lakers much needed young talent pool with Christie.

Ridiculous question. Russ, for all his faults, has shown he’s an nba player, an extraordinarily good one for a lot of his career. SPJr hasn’t shown he belongs in the league yet. Great that SP is doing well in the G League, but there’s a big difference compared to the nba.

NBA G League roundup: Ranking the week’s best performances

Quote:
#3. Scotty Pippen Jr. could be ready for a call-up

Scotty Pippen Jr. has a famous dad and a famous name but he’s carving out his own place with the South Bay Lakers. The 6-foot-3 guard is on a two-way contract with the Lakers but has seen most of his opportunities in the G League. Last Thursday, he put up 28 points and 10 assists in just 28 minutes, hitting 5-of-8 from beyond the arc. Two days later he put up 31 points in 32 minutes, to go along with 6 assists and just 1 turnover.

He’s just an average 3-point shooter but if injuries keep hitting the Lakers he could be ready to make an impact with his shot creation and point-of-attack defense.
FYI: Mac McClung is #1.

Scotty Pippen Jr. named to Rising Stars Challenge roster,
The Lakers will be represented at the Rising Stars Challenge this year at All-Star Weekend with Scotty Pippen Jr.
Quote:
Pippen Jr. has been fantastic this year in the G League, averaging 24.3 points per game in eight contests.
He’s shooting an absurd 50.9% from the field, 41% from the 3-point line and dishing out 6.9 assists per game.
He’s tallied three double-doubles, has a season-high of 31 points and has failed to score at least 20 points just once.

Pippen Jr. will be the first Lakers representative to take part in the Rising Stars Challenge since 2019 when both Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma played in their sophomore seasons.
