It’s too bad there isn’t a 27th letter to indicate sarcasm about Lakers exceptionalism. Or is it sarcasm to indicate your comments will be obnoxious?
Ball was in the top 10 for all point guards in rebounding, assists, steals and blocks. He has a better assist/turnover ratio than four of the six assist leaders ahead of him (Westbrook, Wall, Harden, Simmons).
Fox shoots a little better, but does nothing at a top 10 level.
Ball dominated the two games they faced each other:
Ball (+32): 8 ppg, 9 rpg, 11 apg, 3 stl, .5 blk, 2.5 topg, shooting 6 for 18 (4 of 12 3-pointers.
Fox (-35): 14 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3 apg, 2.5 stl, .5 blk, 4 topg, shooting 11 for 27 (5 of 7 3-pointers.
And after the All-Star break, Fox shot .276 on 3-pointers, while Ball hit .310.
You have too high a basketball IQ to continue being a Lonzo troll. I doubt you’re going to rag on Simmons and Tatum not playing in Summer league.
Go hate on Lebron for changing the power balance of the NBA again.
If we’re lucky, the NBA will start seeding the playoff teams. Last season, that would have meant OKC-Utah, Portland-Indiana, Cleveland-New Orleans, Philly-San Antonio, Boston-Minnesota, and Toronto-Milwaukee. By sacrificing the two worst teams to the two best teams, the East-West imbalance would make for riveting playoff series with more chances for upsets and drama than what we actually saw.
From a geographical perspective, only Golden State-Miami would have involved a lot more travel than usual.
