      I'd say it is. He's had major injuries for 5 years now. You don't magically develop durability by aging further. He might land some small contracts but he wont ever make big money like his brother.

      @@taylormalone1050 the main knock on his game skill wise was the shooting and he drastically changed that. Great defender, IQ, teammate, passer. And he was shooting an amazing percent from 3. He’s still young too, he’s not 29 or anything where it’ll end his career forever. Players have had major injuries multiple times and still made an impact. He is not Lamelo star level, but he can still be a borderline all star, a 3rd/4th best player on a contender. Look at draymond, or Simmons pre mental issues. These dudes are elite defenders and passers, and they have major appeal from teams just off that. Even when other parts of their game struggle. And Lonzo has proven he can be more than just a pass first defender, He evolved his scoring and aggression.

    When I was in HS football, our coaches constantly encouraged us to be involved in a winter or spring sport, and practically everyone did. Some did basketball, some did wrestling, some did baseball, and the rest of us did track & field.
    I remember always reading about great players in each sport starring in other sports in high school, and they didn't specialize until college or even professional. That's why I feel better that Giannis also played soccer when he was younger, so he didn't just focus on basketball.

      I agree with the principle but in this modern era that just Isnt going to cut it anymore. When Danny Ainge or Bo Jackson were killing it in multiple sports you didnt have 10 year old kids working with kiniesiologists, strength coaches, and studying the sport 5 hours a day. The line for success is so slim when you get serious you need to focus almost exclusively on your sport
      I box and now coach, it is a little different because so much more is involved in success and you cant spar hard 7 days a week so i encourage my guys to do different things like chess or what usually happens is video games, to keep their reflexes and mind sharp.
      But hockey, basketball or a QB, etc. Those real fined tuned specialty sports and positions need devotion

      @@thegadflygang5381 the goal isn’t to be a jack of all trades in 3 different sports, it’s to have one main sport that you are most invested in and play other sports on the side to train other parts of your mind and muscles and let them recover. also you absolutely can still find success playing multiple sports growing up. patrick mahomes played football, baseball, and basketball growing up, and hes now already a top 10 quarterback in nba history in 6 seasons. lebron played multiple sports and he became the consensus second greatest NBA player ever.
      when kids only focus on one sport, their health is put in jeopardy, and their skills in their sport become more narrow. playing another sport on the side will improve skills in your main sport. patrick mahomes is able to throw so far and accurately because of his baseball experience. mahomes is able to make amazing split second plays because of the fast pace of basketball.
      playing multiple sports also keeps kids from burnout on their main sport, which leads them to cut corners in training and leads them to even quit altogether.

    When my son was in HS the trainer would tell me why basketball players get hurt more often than football players because the training and playing they do. She said the worst thing you can do to your body is play basketball year round. Especially going from the gym to the outside courts, concrete courts fuck up your knees and ankles because there’s no bounce/cushion like in the gym. Plus your body needs time to recover. She said in HS it’s best to play multiple sports so your muscles can adapt.

He helped his boys get extra attention to add to their phenomenal playing. Now, since they're in the league, they can let their game do the talking.

    I tell people this all the time that we tend to think of injuries as “unlucky”. Which they partly are because me and my little brother lived the same lives yet he’s more injury prone, but also a style of play like Derrick rose is something that is hard to produce for countless years. Yes you played ball all day everyday since you were 3, but maybe that’s why your body is giving out in ur mid 20s. Yes maybe you go to the gym after games but maybe that’s why you body never gets time to heal. Maybe you’re the best person on the ball but it’s because you never put time in the gym. In soccer my team is currently super injury prone because the style of play we played was so much running that it won us a lot of trophies And games but it’s starting to catch up the players. In summary injuries aren’t solely based off luck. To be a great athlete you also have to plan how to be great without burning out. But I pray for Lonzo though

      Contactless injuries due to wear and tear are usually much harder to recover from. This is also why, even though hockey is a more physical game than basketball while also having a 82 games, hockey players are usually able to play for longer and be good for longer compared to basketball players due to the fact they might suffer more injuries like cuts and bruises but the act of skating is not as harsh on their knees or legs as basketball players

    I'm a lifelong Laker fan and I always liked Lonzo. He was a bad shooter as a rookie and barely decent his second year, but he was very good at literally everything else (passing, defense, rebounding, general game awareness) and he's one of the best outlet passers of all time, right up there with Bird, Kevin Love, and D Wade. He also seems like a nice kid; probably too quiet for LA, but the sort of dude I love to root for. I really hope he gets better. I think he's a legit all star if he's healthy.

      Intensity, rest, recuperation and biochemical efficiency and safety are very important factors that professional trainers prioritize. As opposed to bro dad workouts combined with what they did "back in the day" which are more likely lead to injuries.
      Fox has been plagued by a minimum one 4-8week injury since his rookie yr.
      Tatum's trainer is Drew Hanlen, he says last year they concentrated on bulking him up while this summer they concentrate on strenght and flexibility. dont kniw about Mitchell.

      I don't think training at a young age has anything to do with it. It's more about programming your workouts to allow for sufficient recovery. If you don't allow your body to sufficiently recover from workouts or if your workout routine methods are bad, you run into a higher risk for injury. Working out shouldn't be about running your body to the ground but more about slowly progressing your workouts at a comfortable pace to what your body can handle.

Passing, unselfish, smart, great defender especially on ball, size, and a knockdown C&S 3P shooter. So many more.
