    Yeah he has figured it out but Lonzo needs to be more of a scorer tho...yeah sure he can get his teammates involved but he also needs to be more selfish on offense as well especially if he wants to get to that next level

    Form looks much improved. Nonetheless if I'm the GM of NO, no way I'm trusting it to stick.

    This summer I'm offering him a low value extension 3yr/$36 with 3rd year team option, and if he doesn't grab it I consider trading him while his value is rising.

    I've always liked Lonzo's game and was glad he got away from the pressure of LA and the hyper scrutiny he dad brought on him. But 5 games is way too early to declare that he's arrived especially in the dog days of spring when half the teams have stopped trying.

    His 3pt shot is coming along but he's regressed inside the arc, and still doesn't get to the line at all. All in all he's slightly more efficient but still below average. With his skillset that may be all he needs. If people have to respect his shot he's good enough.

    38% from 3 on 6.5 attempts and seems to be rising based on his last 16 games.

    His last 5 are Lakers Wolves Mavs Heat and Wolves id say those teams are trying based on what ive seen.

    The only real thing holding him back and its massive is the same thing that was holding ben back... FT shooting... lonzo should be able to drive at will but he is a bad free throw shooter and relies on shooting over going to the basket.. He ups his FT pct 15 pct or more and that will round out his game... I doubt he will ever be an all star though tbf

    2 of those games were against the Wolves minus Towns, 1 was Lakers minus AD. Ok.

    Wolves beat us at home without Towns and weíre a top home team in the league and we led by 12 with 4 minutes left Id say theyíre trying. Lakers donít try when AD sits out?

    From 2/11 to 2/29 the Rockets were 6-0. From 3/2 to 3/9 they were 0-4. Small sample sizes to justify a point are ********** stupid.

    Lonzo yeah does he have potential to be an All Star yeah he does but I don't think he will get to that elite level superstar status unless he not only becomes more selfish in his play in terms of being more of a score first guard but also becomes more aggressive driving to the basket and getting to the line

    so? its hard to have 5 all-stars on one team because you gotta pay them.

    I'm happy for Lonzo, his Dad really hurt his career. But seems to be breaking out of that now. The hard work appears to be showing. Playing with better players will also help. Ingram, Zion, Holiday are nice to have. Keep this young team together and add alittle they will be dangerous in years to come.

    If he can avg 15+ 8-8, solid defense and good shooting percentages that's all-star level even if he doesn't make one.
