Plz to Wiseman dropping to #3. Can't imagine GS not taking him though.

So why is Ball a bad pick? Is he polarizing because of his dad? Or because he took an unconventional route to the draft?

I’m not saying he won’t be a bust. He doesn’t have a jumper. But seems like he’s got a high ceiling as a PG...maybe he’ll work out, maybe he won’t. But he seemed like the obvious pick there, right?

with Edwards and Wiseman gone, you kind of had to take him at #3

he can't shoot well and he doesn't seem to play defense...but maybe he'll turn out to be good

Trade him while his value is high. Kid isn't a good shooter or defender. Make someone take Batum with him lol.

He's shooting 20% from the field and averaging 3 assists and 3.5 turnovers so far. Doing great!

A point guard who can't shoot and averaging more turnovers than assists = good?

who would you have rather had there?

i'm on board with Ball. maybe he'll be a bust. but the hornets have a long track record of being bad in the draft and not being able to draft a guy that you can actually build a roster around. LaMelo might actually be a guy you can build a roster around. he might be a total bust, but if he's not a bust....he's got potential star power, name recognition, he's a pass first PG that might be able to attract some scorers to come to Charlotte.

Ball and Martin brothers will play a lot this season, after we finally get rid of Batum and MKG. With Gordon Haywood adding on, there are more players on the rotation than last year, so entering the playoffs is expectable.
Miles Bridges, Rozier, Graham, PJ Washington, that’s a young and decent squad actually.

His brother Lonzo Ball plays with Ingram and Zion in New Orlean. Seems better than him.

Ball is 4/8 from behind the arc tonight. His shot still looks kind of busted, but he's already a better shooter than MKG.

^^ He fed Miles Bridges and other folks well with ally-oops. He's almost the brain of the team now. Glad to see he fits in the roster so fast and so natural. Welcome to the NBA.

It looks like it'd be extremely easy to block his shot.

Can’t watch the game (no more Fox Sports on YouTube TV). But Miles almost pulled off the comeback by himself. But judging by Twitter and the box score...Terry, Hayward, and Graham all had pretty off shootin nights.

and survived a terrible shooting night from Hayward...he finished 4/16, but was 1/11 through most of the 3rd Q, i think.

lamelo was 4/5 on 3...small sample size but he's 8/15 on 3 through 4 games.

yeah, he's not shooting it well. seemed like there would be a bit of a logjam in the backcourt with him and rozier, and drafting ball, and hayward is kind of a point forward as well. and who knows what's up with monk.

they play philly again next game so hopefully they'll look better.

This team is slightly better than last yr. They are still in the post Kemba Walker era, looking for the new leaders. Seems like Haywood and Ball will rise to the challenge. Especially Ball. The whole team and even the national media give him so much hope.
