I agree. Where does this "now" come from?

If you want to use misleading headlines we might have to call you EmSPN

fwiw, the actual writer usually has little control over the title at most media outlets.....I would guess writers at ESPN are in the same boat.

Awesome Article Eric! Thanks for Sharing

Lonzo's offense will get better as he gets more used to playing with Lebron.

As this may sound like a weak excuse it's still the truth, they only been playing with Lebron for two months.
Building team chemistry is hardly an overnight process.

P.S also it's gotta be a little bit more exciting for Eric to write about the Lakers nowadays with Lebron onboard

I glean from Need PG to Improve Now as he's improving but not fast enough.

I see Zo becoming more aggressive. He's still a shoot first PG that hasn't gotten the knack of when to shoot or when to pass. When to involve his teammates and when to take over a game. I don't think he has the confidence to do that yet.

I don't know if Zo will ever be a player to take over a game. I don't think its's in his DNA.

He has to improve his shot, that will improve his confidence.

Everyone is waiting for ZO to take the next steps...

Make his free throws,

Shoot over 30% for the 3-point line,

Average double digits in points

Average at least 8asp

How much time should he be given? 1 more year? 2 more years, 5 more years?

The natives are getting restless

Lonzo is developing just fine and he will continue. the only things he MUST do is keep down the TO's and defensive mistakes and stay fast and aggressive.
