    Bust, cant shoot and has zero foot speed/first step allowing teams to go under screens and sag into the passing lanes. Its a shame that Lavar has put so much pressure considering his team wont be helping him much because theyre trash.

    Lavar's not any different than the asshole parents I see at youth sports every week. It just happens his oldest son is an excellent player. Maybe not annual All-Star great, but he's a good player.

    Lavar is the kind of fuckstick that yells at the volunteer coaches and referees. Making an ass of himself in the stands.

    I'm involved in the youth football league down here.... Kind of. My girls are into Drill and Cheerleading. No boys for me... boo hoo... lol.

    Anyway, I'm almost glad I don't have any. Some of these fucking parents are retarded. You see all these dumbass dads who played maybe into High School, even a little College... maybe. They're the worst, because they couldn't make it. Fucking Uncle Ricos... all of them.

    One of the coaches is a Former U of H QB. And the guy is amazing. He's great with the kids, the parents, the other team's coaches, whatever. He's not putting pressure on his kid... none of that BS. It's crazy how humble he is. Played softball with him a few times. Effortless talent.

    Lonzo really needs to step up and tell his dad to back off. He seems like a really great kid and a team player in a league filled with MeFirst stars. If it wasn't for his dad, fans around the nation would be embracing him because people like seeing humble players with talent who make his team better with unselfish play. Instead, there's a huge contingency of fans who want to see him fail because of his asshole dad.

    Also, daddy Lavar is going to have a coronary when the two younger sons flame out in the NBA, if they even get drafted. Lavar will be blaming everyone....

    The youngest kid has a shot at the NBA, the one currently at UCLA has no shot in hell.

    So far it appears he can't shoot to save his life. He reminds me of a Rajon Rondo, Ricky Rubio type player without the defense. He's just a rookie so he's got time to get better. His Dad ain't helping though.

    His dad is ruining him. Letting him think it's ok to shoot 40-50 times a game.

    Then yanking him from school when the coach has the audacity to try to teach him the game.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Lavar keeps him out of college and has him play somewhere else instead. He's that dumb.

    Can't be a bust as an elite passing PG. At worst, if his other areas don't improve much, he'll play 10+ years in the league as a good playmaker.

    But if you come into the NBA as an elite passer it's literally the only skill where you can't be a bust. Other areas like shooting, defense, driving and even rebounding against bigger bodies are harder to transition from college.

    not in the same league. when Milos comes back he's in the same category, even though he's a decade older.

    He's going to be good but that 31 percent shooting is rough so far.

    Guess it's better than Kobe's dad who only spent his time crying about Kobe's playing time when he was a rookie.

    I'm sorry, I can't hear posters who have been BTFO.

    I only do high-rent analysis. Free rent in your mind.

    He took 2 shots in 28 minutes. Bench him and put Clarkson in as starter. This kid is scared

    Gonzo put up some Tristan Thompson like numbers last night. Might just be the worst basketball players I've ever seen
