I am sure that Lonzo Ball is a nice guy. And he certainly has the potential to be an exciting NBA player. While his dad is annoying, the constant Lonzo hype on certain websites gets old.
Lonzo has a ton of upside. But he also has a lot of downside, and there’s a pretty good chance he could totally flame out in the NBA. He is slow, lacks any kind of explosiveness off the dribble, and can’t play defense. Also, somehow his shooting form seems to have gotten even worse since college. He might turn out to be a dazzling passer kickstarting Showtime 2.0, but he is equally like to turn out to be the passing version of Jimmer Fredette.
