At 19 years and 140 days old, LaMelo has taken the record from Markelle Fultz, who notched his first at 19 years and 317 days old.
He came a long way from recording zero points in his NBA debut, prompting many to prematurely label him a bust.

You don’t have to play your five best players in the starting lineup.
There’s only one ball in the court, every team needs that guy that produces off the bench. LaMelo is that for Charlotte.

[–]Hornets BuzzBuzz01 19 指標 1小時前
And anyways LaMelo plays the large chunk of his minutes with some of the starting guys anyway (Hayward, at least one of Terry/Te', always PJ)
I love him off the bench. The energy and everything he brings is amazing.
His minutes are going up game by game and that's all I care about. Couldn't give a toss if he's starting or not as long as his minutes are increasing, which they are

His rebounding is very Westbrook-esque but with less brute strength and more sneakiness. Even on the offensive end which has been pretty surprising.
[–]Thunder OkBarber6 7 指標 1小時前
Lamelo is so smooth man. He doesn’t pound the air out the ball but he has the ball in his hands enough to make plays off the dribble and initiate offense, it’s like he knows exactly what the offense needs of him. He’s definitely a high IQ defender as well but his footwork and body need improvement for him to make a jump.
Watching this game convinced me. Dude is the real deal.
[–]Thunder OkBarber6 7 指標 3小時前
I know it sounds crazy but he had a better game than the statline suggests. His decision making this game was crazy.

If u had just started watching basketball this season you would swear Melo was a 10 year vet with the way he plays out there. At just 19 it's incredible really.
[–]Lakers LeBronathanJameson 74 指標 1小時前
Overseas pro experience definitely helped Melo. It's too early to compare him to how Zo looked early on but the most glaring difference is the confidence in his game. He looks comfortable overall out there esp. in his drives vs. his brother who is avoids drawing contact like it's the plague because of his FTs also affecting his ability to finish. Also quite vocal/good in communicating with his teammates, Zo just shrugs his shoulders and hangs his head a lot lol
[–]Lakers yungtatha 42 指標 1小時前
More kids should take that route. Living in a foreign country is obviously a big life adjustment for an 18 year old, but you learn fundementals and team-play in a way that you rarely get in the NCAA. Probably lessons in maturity too.

I still think Lithuania was pretty stupid, but Australia’s not a bad spot. The standard of play there is very much high enough to be challenging for a top young NBA prospect, semi-pro Lithuanian games not so much.

People like Lamelo and Doncic are prime examples that playing overseas is so much more valuable than a dozen or so collegiate games in the NCAA.
These players are NBA ready.

AD, Zion, Trae, D Wade, Kyrie, Tatum, etc, were all beast their rookie years.
I’m not saying Overseas isn’t a viable option, but let’s not overreact and act like just because you played overseas means you’re instantly more prepared.

I haven't followed the NBA super closely yet this season so apologies if this is a dumb question but:
As of now, who do you think will be the better player between Lonzo and Lamelo?
[–]Rockets c0mmonly 160 指標 1小時前
It's officially time for us to start calling Lonzo "LaMelo's Brother".
[–][LAL] Didier Ilunga-Mbenga give_me_taquitos 56 指標 58 分鐘前
They're very different, so it's hard to compare. Offensively, though, lamelo has looked more comfortable scoring than Lonzo ever has. It's especially apparent with his ability to finish near the rim.
[–][GSW] Stephen Curry weixiyen 27 指標 51 分鐘前
LaMelo. Has similar defensive upside with insane offensive upside. This game about buckets and LaMelo can produce that for his team as both a scorer and facilitator. He's almost certainly rookie of the year and I don't think it's even going to be close.
[–]Lakers jjaytan [分數隱藏] 36 分鐘前
Completely disagree with similar defensive upside. Lonzo is one of the better defenders in the league and is on his way to making all All-Defensive team. LaMelo’s defensive IQ and effort is nowhere near the same level. However, seeing how confident he’s been on the offensive side, it might be enough to say he will be the better of the two.
[–][SAS] Devin Vassell desubeast 84 指標 3小時前

I was always worried that once lebron retired, i wouldnt be able to find a player to fill that void. But i think Lamelo might be that guy. Ever since i saw him point at the half court line in a game and make it, i knew he was different.

Lamelo absolutely killed us this game the assists he had were all highlight worthy in the fact that he put it so even high school players could score it. Trae was not aggressive once again he was too lazy on a couple of passes leading to turnovers and buckets and took a bunch of bad early shot clock deep threes. We need to be better on defense as a whole we didn't string together 2 good defensive possessions in a single half.
