    I knew of Lonzo, never heard of LiAngelo and only heard of LaMelo because of his 92 point game. IMO the 2 younger ones don't have the wow factor but what do I know

    I don't know anything about Lonzo. He may be a good kid...he may be a tool. I don't know. But I almost wish he gets embarrassed every single time out, just to shut his dad up. And I'm thinking that most of the guys he'll get matched up against will too.

    Unfortunately, there are 2 more left. One will be at UCLA next year, the other is only a freshman in HS

    Yeah, I know about them too. I was just thinking that if Kyrie, Curry, Westbrook, Wall, Harden, etc. consistently schooled Lonzo on a nightly basis, it'd be some good karma. And maybe, just maybe, it'd shut dad up a little bit. (I know...it's doubtful. But, a guy's got to dream.)

    Lol or Lebron can shut him up and I'd be happy

    Oh, I think Lebron's already planning on that first meeting.

    I know that I'm alone here, but having listened to his interviews and explaining his inflammatory comments...I kind of like him.

    Which happens first?

    LaMelo makes an appearance in UCLA's starting line up

    OR

    Lonzo makes an appearance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians

    Son has great ability, but if I was a GM in the NBA I would steer clear of drafting him just because of his father. You know is will be nothing but headaches and trouble when it comes contract time. Count me as one who is willing to pass on really good talent when they come with baggage. Just my opinion.

    If the kid is a good one then every GM will draft him if available and it fills their need. The dad will have no effect on draft-ability. I think college coaches might shy away from him but both of his kids have already committed to UCLA.

    Lonzo can play, and he's going to make good $ in the league; however I think this is only going to make things harder on his younger kids

    IMO Lavar is swinging for the fences now with Lonzo's potential deal and trying to package the other kids, before they are found out...just in case they aren't as good as he says.
