          Why go with Nike, which is someone else’s brand, than pushing your own brand? This is the perfect time to push big baller

                  I dont get it. Lamelo is doing great in Australia and somehow he is a big contender to being number one pick. But then Luka Doncic was owning in the second best league in the world Euroleague. he was mocked by so many people even though people from europe already knew how good he was.

                                            Sean Livingston started the international league exodus before getting drafted I believe by the Bucks. He gained valuable experience and was a consummate professional his entire career. Many people noticed it yet wasn't as willing to try other countries. Hoop culture has changed since my youth. It's not American anymore. Nor is it fully understood.

                                              Lavar is learning from his mistakes with Lonzo and Gelo..he’s putting it together correctly with melo

                                                but we all know Lidicky Ball will be the GOAT

                                                  I think we can predict lamelos ability through luka doncic. Luka was the mvp coming out of euroleague (much stronger than nbl) and he came to the nba and tore it up. Melo on the other hand is barely a starter at the hawks. I just think he will be good but not thatt good.

                                                        No doubt, his court awareness is off the charts, that kid who just turned 18 has all the game skills! And he just turned 18. He will still be a teenager for two more years. This kid will be a super star!
