In before Lavar insists on the Pels acquiring the other two Ball siblings.

But seriously, I hope Lonzo is able to get his free throw shooting turned around or it will have Pels fans pulling out your hair, trust me.

What is the point of getting #1 draft picks if players don't want to play for that team. We have 4 1st round picks and no guarantee any of them make it to NO. What will likely happen is we have to trade those picks for more average players and stay mediocre for another decade.

Build the best team around Zion. Draft picks. Stay away from free agents.

He was shooting right at 26% on free throws before his injury. He has some of the worst shooting percentages of a point guard not just in the league, but of the last 30 years.

Lonzo is a bust and I've been telling people that since before he was drafted. He was at best, a 4th round pick, but his dad hyped him up to insane levels and people bought into it.

He has a wonky, wind-up mechanic jump shot which was never going to translate into success in the NBA.

All the hype about his passing and play making is really nothing, when you can't shoot worth a darn. NBA is all about shooting!

WTF were the Pelicans thinking?!? So much for a better GM...

Why didn't they get another trade partner in with the Lakers, New Orleans doesn't need side show, @sshat like this...
