Their hatred towards Lakers, their fans, Lonzo's Dad and the hype cloud their judgement.

By his logic there a at least 5 guys this season almost averaging a triple double and LeBron has almost averaged a triple double pretty much every season of his career.

7.0 assists to 2.5 TO

1.4 stls - he's good at getting into passing lanes, predicting plays, leads to fast break baskets
1.0 blks - versatile defender, plays great help D
104 DRTG, 2.5 DBPM - he's been a big reason why the Lakers have gone from a 30th ranked defense to 8th, he has the 2nd highest DRTG among the starters.
He's currently 7th among all point guards in DRPM

that's a lot of positives on his side

Shooting and finishing around the rim is what he needs to work on..they might have to get him more of those lobs to boost his confidence at the rim, he's shot 40/31/67 in his last 5 games while averaging 10/6/7...he's showing more flashes than he did earlier on, Luke just needs to keep giving him consistent PT and not take him out after a slow start vs. the best team in the WC (Rockets).

Can't wait to see Lonzo improving his shot... and then hater will shut the hell up...
To be honest, these last 5 games, Lonzo has improved his mid-ranged pull up and 3 pointers already...somehow...
After improving his shot and learn more from the game on defense aspect, he will be unstoppable.
To be honest, his play making ability and pick & roll game already opens up so much opportunity for Lakers on offensive end. Last year, Lakers were still staying on 1-on-1... not too much this year....

No to all above
His dribbling is way below average for a point guard
His shooting isn't the only issue, he can't finish against defenders
His footwork and balance is ass which leaves him unable to get by his defender like a good guard
His passing is solid but he isn't running any set plays yet, this will come in time though, all he does it pass it around the outside or run fast breaks right now

The only skills he's shown to be good at is his vision, rebounding and defence right now. He needs to be able to break down a defence, either stretch the floor by being a shooter or be able to have good enough handles and foot speed to get into the paint and collapse the defence.

He isn't a slow runner and the people claiming that are confusing his run speed with his footwork/balance/ability to get by guys.

And 2 of those things are crucial if you want to be a good pointguard. Vision and defense. Defense alone is 50% of the game. Offensively, his passing is solid as you said. As you said, he isn't slow runner, which helps him in the full court pushing the tempo. His dribbling is faaar from Curry/Kyrie levels but still fine enough.

His finishing has been improving last 5-10 games. We keep returning to shooting each time. What do you mean his balance is ass? Explain that bc I don't know what you mean by balance.
