I'm glad Ron is playing phenomenal this season so far. His defense is great and offense is good. However when ever he gets a steal and dribbles down the court. He loses the ball and cant finish. Why doesn't he hold the ball or pass on the break. Have you guys notice this?

Ron fast break dont mix. Sad thing is though he gets most of our steals thus goes on the most fast breaks. He's just a little better than meeks on layups lol

Yeah, unless it's a wide open layup I want him giving the ball up.

He had Kobe open in a critical play tonight but decided to throw up a bad layup which is what I'm sure spurred this thread.

I think some of it is due his poor ball handling. He's just trying to not turn the ball over and get to the rim.

He really blew a big one tonight.

He's honestly probably the worst in the league on fast breaks.

That play added more fuel to this thread. I was going to create it with that play or not. It was on mind for a while

Occasionally Ron will carry shoot the Lakers back into a game or grab a handful of steals, but then he'll also screw up fast breaks or over dribble on offense. I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

Ron is like a bull in a China shop. By far the most unorthodox player in the league.

ron is better on the break than Morris, thats for damn sure, which still isnt saying much. ron is streaky on the fast break, he'll surprise you once and then on the next break he'll dissapoint you - like today, he had one beautiful fast break earlier in the 2nd half, where he did a left hand inside out dribble move to a euro step, it was as nice of a move on a fast break as you'll see ,,,,,,,but then, late in the 4th he couldnt get enough lift to finish a selfish solo break(big miss,too). :smh:

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

MWP is not playing gr8 this season.

he is shooting far too much. everytime he puts his head & goes to teh rim I cringe waiting for turnover or him to get block cuz he cant elelvate.
