So far Zo is avg 9/6/4 in 23 mins. But his shooting is yuck 32% and 30%.

What's his TS%?


50.3%


Is that good?

I think he will breakout this year, but it does seem like he just doesn't have the mentality/aggression/dog to match his talent.

Guy isn’t a difference maker. Ingram is the only guy in that deal that Has major value. Also the 4th pick came in a 3 player draft.

Groin injury. Hate to say it but his peak is probably Rubio if he's lucky.

All the data is in .... as the #2 pick Lonzo is a bust

And he’d have been sent out for AD as well. I still don’t get the hype with Tatum. Reminds me a lot of a cross between prime Danny Granger/Pierce.

A prime Pierce that is 4 years from his own prime is a good player to have

I would consider Darko Milicic ,Hasheem Thabeet and Derrick Williams as busts at #2. Lonzo's numbers are 10/6/6 for his 3 years and he came out of college as a guard that wasn't expected to be a scorer. I don't see that as a bust, especially considering his defensive prowess. Not becoming a superstar doesn't equate to a bust. Not able to stay in the league equates to a bust (See above players). Of course if he only plays 3 years because of a serious injury then maybe the label will fit

I agree that technically he's not a bust, but he's clearly underachieving compared to the hype sorrounding him at the beginning and to some of the other 2017 draftees (tatum, fox, mitchell, markkanen,)

Lonzo Ball is still better than Fultz.
And recall DLO didn't break out until year 4, a contract year.
I bet the same thing will happen with Ball.

He will have an up and down year 3, with a new team, like DLO with the Nets inyear 3. Then in year 4 he will do what Ingram is, but in a totally different way.

Probably 12-13 points, 10 assists, 7-8 boards a game. Then people will start talking about him as HOF all time great we were stupid to trade.

It is player development. I think Lonzo will develop, but he needs time. This is year 3. I also think Lonzo needs to play with Zion, great chemistry. And they need to stagger Zion with Ingram a bit. You'll see better results. When Zion comes back healthy, and a month or two have passed, you'll see Ball's value. The Zion-Ball pick and roll game will be beautiful with time. If I'm the Pels I cash in on Ingram's great start and trade him for 2 athletic forwards who can spread the floor around Zion/Ball. The talent they need around Zion and Ball is not Ingram. Lets see how smart Griffin really is.
