    So what does Ball need to work on: shot, in-between game, running the pick in roll?

    The shot is probably the biggest thing from him playing with anybody on this roster; he can FIT with anybody if his shot is there.

    He's big enough to play the 1, 2, or even 3 at various points (in small instances).

    Low usage, superb vision, transcendent passer, great cutter, we could use him in screening situations as well.

    I think he's the glue to all this. Suprise us Ball, have a great year!

    Shooting without a doubt. Everything else right now comes easy to him. Take 1000 shots a day and then go lift for a couple hours. Every single day.

    So is this going to hurt or help his shooting?

    Can it get any worse? It has to help, right?

    This guy is really wearing his religion on his sleeve. The expansion continues...

    And no it won’t wont help. But if he doesn’t improve his shooting, I can foresee his exit.

    These tats just tell me that these boys have no problem defying their Pops in open sight.

    If Lavar did his balls in Laker bidness again, Zo should speak up. To his credit, he does say that his pops is his own man and is entitled to his own opinions...but don't let him f*** up your paper bruh.

    I think Zo's game is just too perfect of a compliment for star players and for that reason we shouldn't be too eager to send him packing. If his jumper turns true, then he instantly becomes untouchable.

    I really hope all the open looks he gets this year with Bron really turn his outlook as a shooter...but Bron is going to love playing with this kid imho.

    That's why I genuinely believe if a Kawhi deal does end up happening it's BI or Kuz as the centerpiece of that deal. And if it were up to me, I would hesitantly have pull on the latter.

    Maybe those tats are his way of rebelling against his big mouthed dad since he probably can’t defy him directly. At this rate, prepare for the full body tat.

    Go for the neck tats. Always attractive and will really blow LaVar's mind. Personally don't like the big mass of ink he had put on his arm. Very dense and heavy and big for being dense and heavy.

    I don't understand this either and HIPAA violations is just a crutch they're leaning on imho.

    They probably didn't appreciate the leaks/details and don't want to discuss it. Trade talks may have been real and legit in that case.

    He probably doesn't even have a torn meniscus.

    Pretty sure Magic and the Lakers would have him in a bubble if that were the case. With what was reported that it was his camp that leaked it, they probably just made it up to keep him from getting traded. The Lakers will probably just "go with it" for now and just say he can recover with rest.

    As soon as he starts playing and shows his knee is fine, there will be a lull and then he’ll be traded before you know it. Hart is the young guard that should be mentored by Rondo.

    Do the hands in prayer represent how he feels about his jumper?

    Or maybe free throws?

    Lol

    :No2:

    Haven’t been able to be on very much lately because of my work schedule and a sick daughter. If I missed anything important, let me know.
