Lock this shit, mods.
No thanks. Troll bait.
Yes, it's not even close.
Lillard would be horrible at being a douchebag.
Only if "better overall" means taller.
Lavar Ball needs to shut up already
He made a mistake, he typed unpopular when he really meant stupid.
I want him to keep it up until Magic's head explodes and Lebron demands a trade
Riiiight. That is why Laker fans are wanting Dame traded there.
Ball was not even first team all rookie while Dame was first all NBA.
I think it is an interesting question. Ball wins on defense, rebounding and fast break. Dame wins on everything else including shooting, overall offense, half court, leadership, crunch time etc.
As unpopular as this may be, Ball would be a great backcourt mate next to Dame because of their differences.
He’s far better than Dame at having a dipshit father and a fugly shot.
There isn’t a GM in the league who would rather have Ball over Dame. Not even Magic.
Totally agree. Dames leadership and crunch time skills alone make him the clear winner. My point is that Ball does some things better.
I know the “advanced” stats say Ball was a good defender but I sure didn’t see it, unfortunately the Lakers are on TV a lot too he seemed like a pretty bad defender if you ask me. He does seem to be a better rebounder Than Dame.
I mean to your point they bring different skill sets and I agree, but I’m not sure what Ball brings is more than fringe back up PG abilities like MCW type.
How exactly is Lonzo better at defense?
They only say stuff like this because they kept saying. Lillard future laker.
It never happened. Now they're all like. 'oh well Lonzo is better anyway'.
Typical Laker bullshit.
Jeeeeezus I hate the dog days of (basketball) summer................
While Ball does have some me good skills, I think the jury is still out on whether he can be a starting point guard on a playoff team. He is young so we will see. Right now it still feels 50:50 that he could end up a bust.
To be fair the Blazer fans (us) do this a bit too. We really want a guy then we don’t get him it’s like we’ll we didn’t want him anyways ...
