Watch the tricks words. Listen to to espn media robots. He was healthy before he got to the Lakers. Lakers switch on their game plan. They caused him to get injured.

Laker nation loves Lonzo and knows how good he is. It’s a shame Espn tried to push this bad narrative about Lonzo for 3 years..

Gosh the ball brothers are fucking goofy looking. And I think it's funny how everyone was saying "lonzo is gonna be so amazing and he's curry with a 40" vertical " when in reality compared to how much hype was surrounding him he's more towards the bust side of the spectrum so far (granted he is a good passer and good defender" but people made the expectations for the dude unreachable.

Look at every player who left the cancerous environment that LeBron always create. They have all got better. Every single one. Lonzo will get better too now that he's not in the circus anymore.

In my opinion the lakers may won the deal temporaily because of A.D. but in the future the pelicans will have the better side of the trade because lonzo still has alot of room to improve, same with ingram and hart. But as well zion will be the centerpiece to the pelicans organization. If they stick together as a team and no one gets traded I believe in the next 4-6 years they could potentially have a ring

That’s crazy lonzo had 95 starts with lakers.... I feel like d-lo had way less. And still showed his skill.... goes back to what I said D-lo never had his fair start that lakers gave lonzo... d-lo had to play UNDER ball heavy guards like KOBE LOU WILLIAMS NICK YOUNG even Jordan Clarkson. when they should’ve hand him the keys.
KC 4 months ago
Big Neeko Stop it you're talking none sense... Lonzo...his Rookie yr- he share Pg duties with IT, Clarkson, Caldwell- Pope, Bi, Hart, Ennis, Payton, Caruos ...in his 2nd yr - Lebron, Rondo, Lance Stevenson, BI, Hart, Caldwell-Pope, Caruso...so what are you're talking about?

His worst enemy is his FT shooting, it completely messes up his whole game in the offensive end. If he could just be confident going to the line it will make him so much better.
Jrmjuve10 4 months ago
@KC yeah but if he wasn't so scared to go to the line he would attack the basket more, he would be more respected on the offensive end and that will open up more assist opportunities for him
KC 4 months ago
no it doesn't...he has more to his game than some FT%...

Best thing to ever happen to Lonzo was getting traded... Fresh ... Away from father's escapades.

Lonzo success depends on how he distance himself from Lavar and keeping that toxicity away from the Pelicans. The moment Lavar starts talking, its going to have ill affect on both the organization and Lonzo. Remember this is Zion’s team, not Lavar’s team. Lonzo stay away from toxicity.

Wish him well but Lonzo's biggest problem is his "fame". You can tell by the way he talks, dresses, and acts that he kind of thinks he all ready "made it" and that he is already one of the NBA's star players when his career avg is 10/6/6 on 38% shooting while also starting the majority of his games and a large percentage of fans/media consider him a bust
