    Most of them still do

    Curry
    Westbrook
    Conley
    Lillard when he feels like it
    Beverly
    Chris Paul was an excellent defender
    Lowry

    That's why you just got to sit back and let them hate lol. I actually watched full games of Chino Hills over the last couple years. Melo is a beast and most of the basketball heads I know outside of the coli say the same.

    Pretty much everything that's been said in this thread is true, yet doesn't matter, since Lamelo is much younger than everyone else. Lavar intentionally puts his sons on bad teams, against better competition, so they have to figure it out. His passing has improved a lot recently, gotta be patient when evaluating a 15 year old who's still growing into his body.

    I've watched about 5-10 full games of just LaMelo against various levels of competition and extended clips from other games, not highlights. There's tons of film on him because of the AAU circuit.

    He is not efficient on offense. His offense comes from volume, end of story. When you break it down between half court and transition the disparity really shows. Even against normal High School competition he doesn't operate effectively in the half court. All he really takes in the half court are tough pull up shots and he's always fading, setting his mechanics up poorly for the future.
    He doesn't have the passing ability Lonzo does.
    His handle is more show than actual substance.
    PNR game lacking.
    Does nothing off ball to get himself open.



    All of these deficiencies are glaring when he goes up against equal level of competition:

    I said he didn't have the same ability and his age doesn't negate that:gucci:

    Lonzo is a better passer than Dwight Howard, even though Dwight Howard is 31 and a multitime allstar and Lonzo is only 20, see it can work both ways:skip:

    Beverly is an elite defender. Conley is a top 10 player at PG.

    I think Gelo will actually have a good college season and be better than expected. His has the strength and he's the best shooter of the 3 brothers. He'll put up points.

    LaMelo is so frail and undisciplined I can't tell what his ceiling is.
