This forum has pretty much shown me that a lot of guys don't really watch the game as a whole and don't really "see" anything but the ball going into the hoop when they watch. Don't care to know the game and pretty much learn what they know from ESPN. Good or bad play is only determined by the final result of the game. Fox is having a great season, Zo has struggled in some and played well in other games.
Neither of their situations, roles or duties are comparable. They aren't even the same type of player. If Fox is on this team he isn't having a breakout season. Just like last year everyone was prisoner of the moment for a lot of young players that aren't playing "well" this year.
The Lavar and Laker effect is real with Lonzo. I've never seen a guy get this singled out and criticized simply b/c people dont understand his game. He has his flaws and things to improve on but if you can't see the kid adds value on the court you should stop talking about basketball.
You cant compare them?
So how is Lebron the best player in the nba? There are so many nba players that dont play like him so they shouldn't be comparable either lol
You guys use certain arguments only when it is convenient.
Please explain to the people that don't understand basketball what value Lonzo adds consistently on the offensive end. I'm not talking about what value you think his skillset could add, I'm asking what value he has actually added that couldn't be accomplished or exceeded by an average nba point guard?
You guys cling so hard to this dudes defense. Without that, he'd possibly be the worst starting point guard in the entire league.
And you have absolutely no clue how Fox would perform on this team. That statement is bs and irrelevant. The question is which player is better right now. And once again, like 99% of arguments on this forum, only a freakin laker fan would argue in favor of Lonzo.
You ever think that if the majority of this forum didn't severely overrate our players there wouldn't be a need for the amount of criticism that we see here?
There is far more irrational optimism on this forum than there is irrational hate for our own damn players. It's not even close.
As far as understanding basketball goes lol, there are only two people that come to mind that consistently say things that make me question their entire understanding of the game. Ball is not something new. We've seen players like him before.
You wonder why he gets heavily criticized? Maybe because of statements like the one you just made in order to defend him.
And I pay absolutely no attention to Lavar or ESPN so....
ESPN has some crazy agenda against the Lakers, If you don't like Lonzo than you dont understand the game, Fox would suck if he was on our team, Tatum is simply Kuzma but put in a better position...these opinions are not only insane but there is nothing credible that backs any of them up.
The world isn't against the Lakers, this team just isn't very good.
