So what are the chance of Lonzo growing a few more inches?
Really hope he reaches 6'9.

Idk...I didn't get any taller after 18 but some people do. I doubt he gains three inches though.

Yeah, the one player growth spurt that always get's me hyped is Paul George.  I remember hearing about how he literally grew 3 inches over the course of  a season (6'7 - 6'10) or something like that.

Ingram looked like he got a bit taller in the recent workout videos, but that may just be the angle the video was taken at.

I'm sure he's still growing...KD is ~ 6'10-6'11 now...my son pointed it out to me.

In 2-3 years, I expect Ingram to be a 6'10 220lbs SF/PF...

As I said a few days ago, Lonzo is taller than 6'7 now, he's still growing.

Magic is 6'9. When looking at Lonzo standing next to him, he looks about 6'5 or 6'6. If he does grow and inch or 2, that would be cool

Lonzo's poker face through it all is interesting. I think this kid has nerves of steel or might be a humanoid robot or something. Either possibility bodes well for him from a basketball performance standpoint.

Xanax was my guess


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

It's actually very weird. I can't remember a guy who literally behaves like nothing alters him, nothing impresses him. Him walking on stage to shake the commissioners hand was the same as him walking up to the cashier to buy a burrito

It's almost sociopathic lol

If you look at the photo where he holds up the jersey he looks closer to 6-7

Which is kind of insane. It's why I posed that question. When you look at lonzo one thing is apparent. He's actually pretty wide. He has a frame for another 20-30lbs without probably losing a step at all

So what happens to him in 4-5 years when he's 23-24 and his body potentially fills out

Is he still a PG if he's 6-6/6-7 210-220lbs

PG/PF - whatever it takes to be a transcendent superstar.

Kid doesn't have to set the league on fire his rookie year but if he struggles out of the gate like Ingram did that could jeopardize 2018.  I don't think we can afford to be a 20-25 win team but without PG on the roster this year I feel like that's where we're headed.  Good luck to Lonzo.  Good luck to all of us lol.

It's going to require a huge jump from Ingram.

I think D'Angelo - Mozgov vs. Ball - Lopez changes how this team looks drastically. The latter duo is definitely Luke's guys.
