    He needs to develop some D and fix his shot. Once he does this, I think he will be a really good PG.

    Predictions?

    All hype. His dad and the LA marketing machine have cast a shadow he can't possibly fill.

    Not sure how his goofy shooting mechanics will work with NBA defenders guarding him, but seems to have godly court vision for a teenager, and come soff as the polar opposite of his dad. Not sure if that's good or bad in a league dominated by ultra competitive alphas (minus curry)

    What flaws do you see in his game? Can you expand?

    He's got the handles, court vision, sees passing lanes, unselfish, quickness.

    He seems to be able to get his shot off without issue using his step back

    defense, free throws, mechanics, ect. basically (and i hate parroting the talking heads, but...) his ceiling is Jason kidd without the D. isn't a natural shooter, isnt overly athletic, but has phenomenal vision, passing, and even without the speed of other PG's still can run the fast break. his outlet passes are a thing of beauty.

    He hates the Lakers because Kobe owns the Queens soul.

    Absolutely. Unfortunately that ceiling is likely never to be reached, but he has the tools to be a poor man's j kidd with even better passing. (Even if that still makes him a poor man's JKidd)

    While defense is overvalued at the PG position it still plays a huge role in the other teams execution. Lonzos biggest hindrance at this point is his jump shot and FT %. 15 years ago he could be elite with his skill set but the game has evolved. Jason Kidd is Rubio in today's game of perimeter scoring and defending the half court.
