Essentially, he missed out on the ramp up time that all the other players on the team received during training camp and scrimmages and there is no time in the schedule to do so other than in the actual games

you literally think a person saying their NBA team of choice being better than the fucking 76ers is a 'schtick'

a literal thing you think.

Lonzo is taller Rubio*. And like Rubio, finishing is way more important for him than shooting right now. Lonzo can absolutely break the defense down and get to the rim, but that skill is not getting utilized when he can't finish.


*(Rubio is also a much better half-court PG)

Yeah they're definitely in that same area. Ball still has time to get better at finishing but holy poo poo is it frustrating to watch him have zero touch around the basket.

Framing this as "Everyone wants him to play 40 minutes, but it wouldn't be healthy or even possible for him to do that".

Ehhhhh, pretty big strawman there. I don't think anyone's bitching about him not playing 40 minutes. There were 2 specific minutes at the end that he could have played though.

There aren't a lot of worse things you can do if you want to win games than play rookies the last 5 minutes of them, but then again Zion has to start getting that experience some time.

All days are nights to see till I see thee; and nights bright days when dreams do show me thee.


I just assume in these situations Zion said his knee felt a little tight or a trainer saw something he didn't like and the coach is just blowing smoke to protect the rookie from getting another thousand questions about his health.

If Lonzo's spot up shooting this year was real he's not Rubio, he's Old Jason Kidd. Rubio can at least get to the basket he just can't do anything when he's there.

Griifin spent nearly ten minutes today saying it was because he missed a bunch of 5on5 work and is going through the same /similar ramp up in activity that his teammates have done. He just doesn't have any practice time with this schedule to do the 5on5 work or the scrimmages so he has to do it in the real games. It seems like they expect him to be playing his full minutes by game four.

Issac smartly positioning himself for a post-playing career of going on Fox News to assure white people that racism isn't that bad. Whitlock's heart can only hold on for so much longer, they're gonna need a new one.
