Magic: Lonzo entering season with 'beautiful' new shooting form.
Lonzo Ball's unorthodox shooting form and weak percentages during his rookie campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers drew a great deal of criticism.
The 20-year-old point guard is at least self aware of his shortcomings as a shooter, which is why he took it upon himself to try and improve that facet of his game by reworking his form over the summer. ""We didn't want to bother him [his shot]," said team president Magic Johnson on Thursday, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. "I think he decided to do that on his own. "And, man, it is beautiful." If this is indeed true, Lonzo will have addressed his major weakness and should be a greatly improved player.
What do you predict his stats to be?
Aside from making it to the finals as a bench player with the Spurs, T-Mac never made it past the first round in the playoffs. He joins Allen Iverson, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Steve Nash, and Karl Malone as one of many greats that never won a ring...

Melo Hawks Jersey so rare🦄, the man himself can’t even get one
Melo will NOT come of the bench. He refused to take a bench role last year on OKC and looks like he’s still not willing to “sacrifice” on Houston.
"I know how to play this game of basketball. I've been playing it for a long time. When I feel like I'm ready to take that role, then I'll take that role. Only I know when it's best for me to take that role. I'm not going to do that in a situation where I still know my capabilities and what I can do. And at the end of the day, the people who really matter know my capabilities and what I can still do. You start getting to the media and debates, it's going to always be kind of back-and-forth." .
Does he deserve to start??

#Kuzma should have been at least an 82.
#Lonzo got the same #rating as Kuzma and Kuzma was by far the better rookie this year.
#2K definitely got this one wrong...
After 9 seasons with Toronto, he leads the Raptors franchise in points, games played, minutes played, and has the 3rd most in assists... .
Is he worthy?

Marc Gasol on wanting to become an NBA Champion 🏆
Maybe he should ask DeRozan what he thinks about staying loyal 🤔

DeRozan on being sent down to Texas 😕
Was this just a salary dump?
DeMar DeRozan's salary in each of the next 3 seasons:
2018-19: $27.7 million
2019-20: $27.7 million
2020-21: $27.7 million
Good trade for the Raptors... they needed to switch up their core because they just weren’t winning, as the last 4 years or so will show. Now they have all cap space for the 2019 free agency; they can use that to convince Kawhi to stay or get another star or two to sign with them.
