IF that's the case then he clearly shouldn't be playing. Why aren't we protecting HIM?


He might be good enough to play but not at his best.

The reason why Ball is getting a lot of open looks is because the Cavs keep collapsing on him everytime he drives in so someone is always wide open.

This won't be the case in the regular season against organized team defenses unless he proves he's a lethal rim attacker.

Yep...about half of his assists he gets wont happen in the regular season. Those full court passes arent gonna happen, an nba level coach and roster wont allow that.

 

He's still an elite passer but its not gonna be this easy or look this easy during the regular season. The defense is beyond terrible.

The reason why Zo is getting a lot of assists is because he's simply an assist machine. No other reasons or explanations needed. Doesn't really matter what the defense does. He's going to get assists no matter what. That's the surest thing hands down.

Disagree.

The Cavs are sending 2 or 3 dudes everytime Lonzo puts the ball down and drives in. That's terrible defense and a terrible defensive scheme.

I'm not denying his passing abilities. But this game at least, the Cavs are playing Lonzo bad.

It's a guess judging by how he looked.

You can usually see when a player is.

Pretty sure we would've heard SOMETHING. It's more likely he's just embarrassingly out of shape.

10-12ppg 5 rebs and 7 assists per game is what I'm hoping from him this season.

You haven't even mentioned all the shots his teammates have missed simply because most of them are scrubs. You don't think those assist numbers will be as high or higher by default of simply having legit weapons around him come season?

Lonzo looks gassed. Legs gone. Quick breather maybe.

The creating ability for Lonzo Ball will naturally be limited vs NBA squads. It will not be this easy.

I still see him averaging 7 assists a game eventually as he figures things out.
