To be fair, I think Lonzo does have the potential to be a really good, All-Star calibur player in the league. He has the skills and credentials. It's mental with him. When he just goes out and plays, he's good, damn good. When he tries to do too much and overthinks a lot of things and tries to force the game to go his way instead of letting it come to him, he just gets in his own way. I think 'daddy' is certainly to blame for that for putting all that pressure on the kid and talking him up like he was the 2nd coming of Magic Johnson. He basically set up his own son to fail and made people want to see him fail, myself included, the more he kept running his mouth. Which was ultimately detrimental to him. Lonzo is still a young kid, just 22 years old. He still has a lot of room to grow. If he can kick that mental block and just play, I think he will be a top 20 PG in the league.
