LaVar Ball's mouth has gotten the best of him. Lonzo Ball has been struggling with the Lakers, and the high expectations are getting to the rookie. He has the second-worst field goal percentage ever over any player's first 11 games in the shot clock era (with a minimum of 100 shot attempts). LaVar will only double down on his son, increasing the pressure even more. Lonzo also admitted that his shooting struggles are in his head.
This kid obviously doesn't have what it takes to make it in the NBA. He is a bust.
People expect every top-5 pick to be LeBron James and Kevin Durant right out of the gate. Truth is, it takes time for rookies to develop and adjust to the NBA. Not every player is blessed with James' body or Durant's scoring skill set. Ball has the pressure of being a No. 2 pick, but he is still a rookie learning the ropes. Once he does though, look out. Ball has unreal court vision, and can see plays developing seconds before it happens.
Once he gets his shot down, he will be unstoppable. Just give him some time.
