A game or 2 ago a graphic came on the screen that Lonzo was shooting the 3 ball since either jan 1 or jan 6 (cant remember) at 3rd highest % in league around 44% just a tick behind Klay and Curry.

 

Wow...never would have guessed that.

(Note a lot fewer games due to injury though)


Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

KD went to 73 win team
Bron chose home
Melo chose money
Aldridge was going to be tradebait

That doesn't change anything

New report out suggesting Lebron want to play until he is 40 and wants a chance to play with his son in the league. It says he misses his family so that might be up in the air. His family is where? Might be a done deal.

Old News.  Only team that's in the conversation is Philly.  HOU needs to make a lot of moves and I just don't see it happening.

 

Cavs are out of the question, IMHO.

 

65% LAL

25% Philly

9% HOU

1% Cavs.

LOL...0.000000000000000000000000001%

 

How about that?  IMHO, MIA has about as much of a chance as most other teams: little to none.

 

LeBron wants a 35M/yr max.

 

MIA is 44M OVER the cap this summer.  http://hoopshype.com...ies/miami_heat/

 

Not happening.

I think he's back to how he was playing at the beginning of the season. He's just a complete non-factor as a scorer. As well as he does everything else, I think his upside and overall impact will be heavily limited if he can't force defenses to respect his offense.

 

He is a rookie, so maybe he'll improve. But, it's just something to look for going forward. He's got a long way to go on that front.

That was embarrassing.

Lonzo really has to get this shot selection thing down. Brick after brick late in the game directly cost us the game. He takes the ones you don’t want but passes up the ones you do want. The rebounds, assists and D are all great, but you can’t shoot 12 threes and cost us the game when it’s not falling.

It sucks because he’s doing everything great EXCEPT score. Gotta get it together, Zo.

His shot is just as broken as it's ever been. Started awful then went through a nice stretch now he's regressed back. Some ppl were convinced he was just lacking confidence but I don't believe that is the issue. A shaky jumper is one thing but Lonzo straight up can't shoot. His floater and free throws are equally horrendous. Until he changes his shooting form I expect his streaky play will continue. And it's a shame because as has been pointed out a million times he is so good in every other aspect of the game. But I don't believe he'll be able to perfect his crappy form and eventually make it work. If he doesn't change his shot it will severely cap his offensive potential imo. But with enough time and work I believe he can do it.

How about that PnR and mid range game from Lonzo tonight? If he can really improve on those... Good times are coming 👍

Like that fan from denver pointed out--Lonzo got that Cerebral Palsy looking jump shot

44% on free throws kinda boggles the mind, especially for a PG.

That’s why he doesn’t drive in, that and because of worrying about his gimpy knee which has given him issues off and on all the way back to summer league.

Hopefully his off season work agenda includes more than making Ball in the Family episodes.

In last game of the season Fultz broke Ball's youngest player to have triple double record. SMH.

Lonzo and Kuzma won't play in Summer League.

 

Also, from what Lonzo and Luke are saying it sounds like he won't be changing his shot mechanics.  Here's hoping he hits 40% next season.

Kuzma, I understand.  Lonzo should play for at least a couple of games.  You don't know if what you're doing is working unless you test yourself.  Lonzo has a few things he needs to work on and some questions that need to be answered.

Lonzo should play along with TB if he isn't traded. Kuzma I get too. He should play
