      Lamelo will be fine in the NBA and every body knows lamelo is better than lonzo on offense but defense and playmaking ability lonzo is better if zo would work on his shot he would be alot better

          Why Australia the competition is less talented it's the reason he looks good.

            Team has a losing record and dude is shooting 38% and like 28% from 3 (estimate). How do they make it seem like he is torching every team he plays and dominating the league? He wouldn't even be a role player with those numbers in the NBA and the NBA is waaaaay tougher.

              I’m an Aussie and it’s the first I have seen of him and I’m impressed. His most potent weapons are his passing and his ability to get to the rim at will. Atm his shooting is not great but it’s getting better. His defence is serviceable with him starting to block a few shots too. He is 18 years old, the kid is legit.

                  LaVar and Tina's DNA, parental tutlege got Lonzo a 33.5 million dollar contract and will make Melo a multimillionaire in 2020. Yeah, they really have ruined these boys lives.
                  I can see literally millions of kids across the nation wishing they could have parents to ruin their lives like this. Yes, CONTEXT MATTERS!

                        We going have some players that rise up in the NCAA TOURNAMENT that we not talking about now that could effect the draft stock of the top 3 players that you guys just named.

                                If Lamelo gets in and does well, it's only a matter of time before the prophecy is complete. Melo and Zo will team up for a Deadly 6'7 SG PG combo, and Gelo will be brought in as a Bench Warmer. All 3 Ball brothers on one team, as Lavar the Messiah promised.

                                          Doncic goes MVP in the 2nd best league in the word "he is not a n1 pick" Lamelo is doing fine in the Nz and Australian league "im not surprised he will be n1 pick" I mean come on we're do they find these clowns

                                            I think LaMelo is the most talented player of the Ball family - I made a short film last year about their JBA Europe tour, as they stayed here in Bamberg germany. They played against our Brose Bamberg farm Baunach Young Pikes team. If you are interested, here is the link to the film 🎞 I made also some interviews with them, best regards from a small german 🏀 fan with some Basketball short films (also Milos Teodosic)

                                                LaMelo is 50/50 for me. People should be talking more about Tyler Herro; dude is savage!

                                                  These fools are crazy despite all they think. Taking time away from America and being overseas and getting paid is a helluva life experience. He had a blast in Lithuania. That ain’t no slouch country money go long over there and the women touch money!!! He was winning

                                                    He can't shoot. He's shooting 34% in Australia and 18% from three, how should that get better in the NBA?

                                                      I never bought into Lonzo, but LaMelo might get me on ship. We'll see.

                                                          Melo to the Suns would be a perfect match. Nice length and offensive firepower for the back court! A run n gun team!

But then Luka Doncic was owning in the second best league in the world Euroleague. he was mocked by so many people even though people from europe already knew how good he was.
