The Ball kid is an excellent passer....this much I'll give him...that's his strong skillset
The eye test for me as I live in L@ker land. He is certainly longer than Dame. I believe his advance stats support that as well. He’s not a lock down defender, and Dame did improve a bit last year, but I think Ball is a bit better, especially at his age.
For size to size Dame is a good rebounder and Ball is decent. Ball is not a good defender and terrible shooter. Ball is passing is above average passer due to he can make the basic pass to another player. Does he make highlight passes the answer not really. Ball is still young and I almost can tell you if the Spurs would of made that trade with the Lakers with Leonard, Ball might have been a Spur. Anyway I don't think Ball is durable he properly will be hurt all the time. He was hurt in his summer league and he was hurt last year. Then he had procedure done this summer. Dame been the opposite and he is a better leader. Ball won't get all them assist this year due to LeBron that dominate the ball.
I think Wade Baldwin would own Lonzo on the court. I don't watch the Lakers but I watched Lonzo play in college ...defense there was not his strong suit.
Unpopular opinion: Harkless is better then Durant
and yes I consider my above statement and the twitter statement to be on EXACTLY the same level of stupidity
to me, they're both s0-s0 defenders, so claiming one is better than the other is like breaking your left pinky is better than breaking your right pinky.
Laker Lockdown shows why huffing paint is bad for you.
I think this should be the new name of the thread...
So, Laker Lockdown is an @HCP burner account?
According to rumor, Spurs didn't trade with LAL because they wouldn't take Ball.
What if a copy of the Shaft came with it?
This doesn't upset me because it's so dawg gone downright ridiculous.
This is a glimpse of what the world would be like if @KingSpeed was a Laker fan.
they can't guard us!
i think he misspelled 'uncorrect'
But if you are left handed thats a major difference.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Now, where's the punch line?
Better at what? Certainly not basketball.
The 2 edged sword of playing in LA. With many other teams, Ball would be both less hyped and less hated. People wouldn't be babbling about him being better than Dame - but you also wouldn't have people (not neccesarily in this forum) claiming he is a bigger bust than Fultz.
