3 of his rebounds in the 3rd quarter were obvious triple-double chasers. Teammates intentionally backed off and let him have open rebounds. I mean, he was more impressive than I've seen him so far this season, but I can't stand that kind of obvious team stat-padding.
I'm tired of media glamoring over meaningless stats, especially if they didn't get a win. Good for the kid, but glorifying stat-padding is getting ridiculous.

4 blocks, 3 steals as well. Except for the Laker thing I'm a fan.
It's SAD that this is the lead story on both nba.com and ESPN. I am so sick of the Lonzo Ball overhype train. It's sickening. What makes it so bad is that they LOST but of course, who cares as long as Lonzo has good numbers. I can almost guarantee he's going to be in the ROY race regardless of any putrid numbers he produces. What bothers me most is that he's not EARNING any of this press & praise because his production is garbage!
Congrats to him.He seems like an humble kid and he'll only get better.He's made The Lakers competitive AND better - that is a lot for a rookie.I'm glad that WE were able to bottle him up somewhat but he's going to be a load going forward.The comparisons to Jason Kidd - while STILL early in Ball's career - are not far off. A 6'6" version of Kidd.With that much height he has the potential to REALLY disrupt defensively as he gets better.Congrats on Moderator, too - Moranis.
