    If MJ chose LaMelo than I'm almost positive he will be a bust. Micheal Jordan is an awful identifier of talent.

    Honestly don't think melo is NBA caliber. There, I said it. I agree with Max. Not explosive, broken shot, and liability on defense, for what? Some good court vision. I wouldn't buy it. These kids nowadays are walking into the NBA. Watered down league.I like melo but Lavar Ball is finessin' the NBA.

      Also, I can not stand the fact that 'being able to put fans in the seats' is one of the reasons for melo to be drafted. Are we being serious? I love the game of basketball, and for the sake of keeping the integrity of the game, this should not be one of the reasons we draft players. If that's the cause, anyone popular could join the league. Keep the NBA high level, draft talented players. Simple.

    Lamelo shot 25% from 3 and 45% from 2 in the NBL. He's only gonna get worse in the NBA. Teams will disrespect him and sag off cause they know he can't shoot so any sort of playmaking he could have done against lesser competition will be neutralized. Dude will be a fringe starter or 6th/7th man at best like his Lonzo.
