What a pain in the behind

Lavar just doesn't get it

Training team??? This is the Rocky equivalent to Lavar:

Any chance the lakers are clearing way for Fox rather than Ball?  They allegedly wanted to deal 2 for 5 and 10 didnt they...

^ no chance they get fox. Ball has a much more well rounded game than fox

Fox shoots like 20% from 3. Its ugly

I'll take Fox over Ball.  Fox shot significantly better later in the college season.  He shot better in high school.  His shot looks better than Ball or Jackson.  I think he'll shoot around 33% after some development.  That's good enough with the rest of his skillset.  Ball's shot has significant questions besides being ugly.  He mostly shoots going left.  He doesn't drive or finish well in half court.  How well is he going to do when he doesn't have 4 shooters on court like he did at UCLA?  Of course Fox is significantly better defensively.

Lonzo looks really really good  >:(

Kinda jealous he forced his way to LA and we had no shot at all it's just SL but he looks pretty special

Actually, the scouts all comment on how unbalanced ball's game is - offense but no defense.

Also, please watch the ball-fox match ups last year in college. Fox simply owned ball both games.

I don't like Ball's game much, but he is unquestionably elite in transition.  Of course, Summer League is pretty much going to be dominated by transition-inclined guards.  He'll have his opportunities in the regular season, but if he wants to be great, he'll need to excel in the half-court.

I couldn't be happier we didn't pick him. Poor defender, terrible shooter, and a limited upside.

Lonzo "Big Rondo" Ball. We got a better prospect and a bonus pick to boot.
