Watching this Lakers game. Ingram is impressive, but Ball is very unimpressive right now. His shot is crap from NBA range, and his lack of a midrange game is obviously killing him.

It's easy to confuse what "is" with what "ought to be," especially when what "is" has always worked out in your favor.

1-9 on threes now. They're not playing up on him, so he's just taking the easy long ball. His lack of an in-between game is going to really hurt him in the NBA, especially if he doesn't improve his three.

Watch these summer league games that are basically street ball games makes me miss NBA games even more.

  • GOT IT!!!
If Ball isn't dominating the ball and running the show he'll just be another guy. Do something besides stand around the arc.

It kills me how much Rob Pelinka looks like Rob Lowe. He could be his body double.

Ball hasn't been all that impressive so far but he has 4 assists and 4 rebounds and 5 points. That's like half of a triple double...

Thorneell reminds me of young Joe Johnson.

Ball won't be able to defend at the NBA level...

I think he'll be fine from three; he's just having a rough night. The mid-range game/late-clock offense is really troubling. He's struggling with the length, athleticism, and speed of Summer League. The NBA is a whole different monster. Although, the spacing and higher quality surrounding talent (maybe not on the Lakers lol) will help him a lot. Remember, a lot of what makes Lonzo special is enhancing his teammates. In Summer League, that's a lot harder to do.

Looking forward to that Kings juggernaut. Hield, Fox, Skal, Giles, PapaG, Jackson, Mason, Richardson. That's a beyond stacked team.

For anyone thinking The Lakers are going to be anything but terrible this year, The Lakers are losing with some of there "starters" against a Clippers team with no 1st rounders. I don't think the Lakers have a player can defend.
