    I stg if anyone says “ wHy iSNT HE sCoRiNG 40”.... he has good teammates now and a good coach and doesn’t take as many shots so don’t expect him to drop 40 he’s still number 1 in his class and lowkey I don’t even think he was trying this game😂

      Melo is talented and he's in the top 10 of HS ballers for 2019.
      And yes, he did have this "I'm too cool for school" vibe in this game.

      @Sharrieff Muhammad Where did I called you that? I'm confuse. The person that used that language wasn't me I was somebody else that is who I called immature. Like I said it wasn't me.

      @Jon Snow Yes. I'm not a fan either but I didn't call you any names, but it was ok for you to call me that and that is what I called you immature.

      Sharrieff Muhammad just look at the post above which I replied. If it wasnt you that is how RU-clip show it. I haven't called anybody other than BBB fanatics in any of my post because I don't use that language. I that wasnt that was it showed.

    Definitely a dynamic duo. Hoping they have defensive drills in practice though. That's always a constraint to the next level of hoops. Offensively speaking, they may rival some great backcourts across the land. Time will tell.

    Lamelo is a better shot taker than Lonzo for sure but something i see in all 3 is they like aggression. I dont think its because they cant, they just dont have that hunger because their dad gave them the things that normally come with the Nba. These kids had deals, fancy cars, a fan base, money just in HS. They all remind me of a young dirk... they love the game but the hunger is absent.

    Even if the JBA comes to a end, it has served its purpose getting Lamelo and Gelo towards where they need to be and improving their game.

  • A.Lane15 WWJD
    A.Lane15 WWJD Year ago

    Lamelo did this not too much removed from a flight. He’s gonna be a great player. Not including his range and the fact that he’s now shooting at a much closer 3pt line.

      Walter Davis have you ever got of a 14 hour flight?? you legitimately sound stupid...

    • Big Dicholas
      Big Dicholas Year ago +1

      @Walter Davis I suppose when you're young you don't feel fatigue from exercise and travel? That's not how it works, ancient one. Having to play a game and then probably not sleep on the flight back to then immediately go to another game will tire anybody out. Stop hating people younger than you because you never did anything in life.

    • Walter Davis
      Walter Davis Year ago +1

      @Big Dicholas man stop making excuses ok. Dont hype shit up then come with excuse. He to damn young to ne tired ok.

    • Big Dicholas
      Big Dicholas Year ago

      He had just got off of a game and a 14 hour flight to get to the game. His coach wanted him to score for them and not worry about defense so much.
