    I've been saying it for years that Liangelo needs to remold his game into a PJ Tucker style to make the league and stick in the league, he can't see the writing on the wall that the league does not care about him getting shots because if he were to make a roster he won't get many of them so they do not care about his scoring like that....at his height and size he really needs to carve his game out into what PJ Tucker has become all grit and grind and focus on defending every possession (even in practice) and when he does get his limited shots then knock them down....but just going out there focusing on his point total is not going to get him in the league, no organization is bringing him in to be a primary scorer so he needs to shift his game towards being a defender 1st and a student of the game of defense

      @I am Groot! not fan talk hopeful thinking yet I have seen him play since he was younger until now and I know he can play defense and an excellent 3 point shooter watched all the Ball Boys grow up and he shoots better than both his brothers and they will and have admitted that Gelo just don't have the handles they have P

      I am Groot!

      @Smithy Georgio Gelo ain't filling seats like that and he isn't going to have any shit at an NBA roster spot playing the way he did last year in the G league. It's about ability and impact all that other stuff is fan talk

    • Smithy Georgio
      Smithy Georgio

      @I am Groot! you didn't pat attention to last year's advertisement of summer league it was Gelo and all they talked about was Gelo that was to bring in the MONEY/REVENUE 1 game he scored 22 points then 17 points that's when they took him out they lost from then on they took his minutes players stopped passing the ball to him. To whom ever keeps talking about him stealing the glasses they need to let it go just like the NBA does let's see if all these players that has off season trouble will be playing once the season starts y'all all new to the ball family I've seen what they can do HOLD ON

    I feel like if he was on a team that actually wanted to give the guy a chance and develop him he’d be in the league and yes I understand that the swarm signed him when nobody else did but come on you can’t say that they have given him a fair chance not to mention they aren’t the best team for actually developing players

    • I am Groot!
      I am Groot!

      @Smithy Georgio Incorrect. Gelo did score some his first game but over 28 regular season games he only scored about 4 pts 1 reb in just under 15 minutes. Dude shot around 36% from deep. Not exactly lighting it up for a G prospect

    • Smithy Georgio
      Smithy Georgio

      @I am Groot! when Gelo put up the numbers last year they gave him less and less they need to give him a chance to show them he has paid his dues already. None of the draft picks are show all that either and I do know they have to see what they're working with from them but they need to find the winning combination in order to win not just play. They know Gelo is a great 3 pointer so design a play so he can get the touches so they can WIN not just play

    • I am Groot!
      I am Groot!

      Y'all can cry and whine about his minutes but those are earned not gifted and Gelo hasn't show he can produce but you not concerned with that just blame everyone else right?

  • Nick

    To debunk your making an impression point about Manek (spell check). Gelo's first game with the Swarm he made a huge impression and his minutes were stripped immediately. Idk man it seems like Gelo would be better off playing overseas than to fight an uphill political battle in Charlotte. My thoughts. Great video as usual DKM. Keep it up! 🙌🏾

      @Samuel Trinh 😂 we talking about summer league fam. Chill. The man lit it up last year during summer league. How is it delusional to expect more than five minutes? If he is that damn bad as you are implying, he wouldn't be on the roster. That is all. I know Gelo isnt Melo or Zo. It's blatantly obvious, but to antagonize "fans" is dumb. I didn't sign the mf the hornets did. Seems that they are the true culprit. Shift your energy to them for even giving folks like myself a leg to stand on 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Samuel Trinh

      @Nick you are 100% correct he's already proven he can play at this level but for some reason they just don't want to give him a chance. The dude came out last year and was going points with the little time he did receive and they continuously cut his minutes like what more does he have to do

    DKM knocked it out of the park with this video. I know I've been a major critic of his work, but this was great analysis. People want to criticize the coaching, or simply focus only on LiAngelo Ball. But the fact remains that the #1 reason the Charlotte Hornet's summer league/Greensboro Swarm teams have struggled so much is they haven't had a real PG at any point Gelo has played for them. Charlotte was fortunate and it was very surprising that they came from behind to beat the Lakers. If the second overtime (OT) period wasn't "sudden death," I don't think the Hornets win this one. 💁🏻‍♂️🏀

    Just moving without the ball won’t get him more involved in the offense or lead to more shots for him. When Steph and Klay are doing that the other guys are setting screens for them to get them those shots and to keep defenses scrambling. It’s not individual movement it’s the system.

    • Tello Serif
      Tello Serif

      @WW I don’t know why you can’t get it through your skull but basketball doesn’t work like that. You don’t just run around until the ball falls into your lap someone has to actually pass you the ball. Like I said before that team isn’t awful because Liangelo can’t move without the damn ball and no matter how many times you repeat that they will continue to be a bad basketball team.

    • Tello Serif
      Tello Serif

      @WW He’s open plenty and I’ve seen their lackluster playmaking fail to find him in stride his movement without the ball is not what’s wrong with this team. Think what you want.

    on point. People need to realize that last summer league he still stood around like PJ tucker on offense. He just got passed the ball more and played more minutes. But that type of play isn't going to get you the ball. Some of it is team schemes and others is on Gelo to be more aggressive, go get rebounds and push, cut, move when the players are cutting. ETC

      Players that are drafted the team is invested in so they gotta give those players playing time. With Gelo they really haven't invested much and he's not under contract so they don't feel the need for them to play him.

    • CM
      CM

      Yeah, because he was a second round draft pick, they want to see him play as much as possible. Why is this so hard to understand?

  • Dario Carrera

    I appreciate it your honesty bro on Gelo your most definitely not like other pages like flight sports tv or whatever he’s call. Gelo has to take accountability as well he has to stop paying so shy and stop just standing in the fucking corner and move without the ball a lot more. His teammates are trying to make the NBA as well they are not in the game making sure Gelo gets his points. He doesn’t no other options though he’s at the mercy of the hornets organization.

    He's done. He just needs to go overseas and hope he actually improves for him to get a 4th chance to make the NBA😑 Edit: Maybe he can get the Thanasis Antetokoumpo treatment when Melo becomes a superstar. His brother can force the team to put him on the team when contract talk happen.

    • GTFOH
      GTFOH

      @Mario Knight yeah but were talking about a franchise that wants to finally compete. Im sure they want Liangelo to be a pert of that but they're just a small market team that cannot afford to make that type of investment on him. Not rn

    • Mario Knight
      Mario Knight

      @GTFOH yeah, I hear you. I heard this one point from a IRglor that made sense to me. He said the Hornets want to play/push the players they've invested in, however, they probably won't reap much from their current investments whereas Gelo is where the big money return can be at. For the simple fact that if 2 of the Ball brothers are on the same team that will draw a lot of press, fans, interest and money to the franchise. but based on how everything is going, Gelo may need to play elsewhere though

    • GTFOH
      GTFOH

      @Mario Knight his time passed. In 2022 the Hornets are invested in players they drafted and signed the last 2 seasons. He's not one of them. He needs to go overseas to fimd those minutes. Tough sht

    Your points are valid, Gelo has to move and do more. On the other hand, he did all that for the Swarm last season and they ignored him anyway. The problem is the organization. Gelo is and always was, ready to ball out.

    • george lugenalt
      george lugenalt

      @KTdaGoat They don't have Miles Bridges any more. Plus, i don't agree with your evaluation of Gelo, his shooting is beyond question, and his minutes are the reason the assists and rebounds are lower than they'd be if he got minutes. You got guys going 2/14 from the field getting 30-35 minutes, and Gelo, who NEVER shoots cold like that, getting 5 minutes whether he makes or misses. I call BS. Cheers anyway tho.

    • KTdaGoat
      KTdaGoat

      @ItsDababy I get what you saying also but if we talking straight facts Gelo ain't it right now.. He went to the Swarm and they started him do you know what his G league starting AVR was?? 5.5 ppg.. 20 more mins of playtime and bruh drops ONE more point than being a bench guy.. Gelo could develop but right now y'all saying what y'all FEEL but ignoring he's shown..

    • jqthebest1

      @Kamaal Abstract y’all saying for him to move, but if you watch a lot. He doesn’t move because he is either already open or other spaces are filled.

    • ItsDababy
      ItsDababy

      @KTdaGoat I get what your saying but he definitely is better than what he is on paper when he has team that actually passes and play to win instead of fighting for nba spots, but definitely need to be going all out and not letting his team hold him back from playing rn

    • KTdaGoat
      KTdaGoat

      @ItsDababy Real shit Gordon offers more sitting than Gelo does playing and it's 2 SGs one good the other great.. And 3 SF all better with more upside than Gelo and I really like dude.. But overall I'm honest and Gelo ain't it.. Again hes a backup in the G league, G league superstars and starters become NBA bench players if this man average 4.5 and is a backup in the G league boy gonna average 1.4 on the same playtime in NBA..

    That's how you know they're doing it because of his last name they don't care about Gelo, nether the players or the coach. Gelo Needs a different organization just saying. Also his Summer League coach is his coach from Greensboro.

    • Al Francisco
      Al Francisco

      Yeah the Summer League coach is the Greensboro Swarm coach he didn't give Gelo many mins last season. He speaks very highly of Gelo that he's a hard worker and a great person and teammate. It may be the Hornets GM calling the shots for Gelo not to get playing time or since he's not a draft pick and is not under contract they are not obligated to play him.

  • Jason
    Jason

    I can’t get over the Gelo fans, acting like he’s entitled to play every minute and touch the ball every possession. The other 4 men on that court are out there trying to make it too! It’s not their job to make him look good!

    • Mario Knight
      Mario Knight

      he literally averages 4 mins or less. so to say 'entitled to play every minute' doesn't make sense. He does deserve an afforded opportunity like everyone else (because they do be getting their opportunities not Gelo) esp...... when he has one of the high points avg with yet so little play.

You need to go overseas and hopefully get better in the next couple years and maybe play in the NBA for a couple seasons you never know. But for right now it’s not happening for a reason. If he was that good he would be getting the ball he will be starting. He’s only on the team because of his brothers and because LaMelo is the star of the team.

      @D. Hunt point is, in the drew league, Gelo only showed full court passing capabilities... not like he was settin his teammates up and throwing dimes cause he wasn't at all... and let's not even talk about his turnover to assist ratio cause SHEESH

      Okay NBA players have through the ball out of bounds before 🤨. It happens...

  • Mario Knight
    Mario Knight

    bro... he was ONLY on for 5 mins. Only one pass to him. He only made one shot attempt from that one pass. Furthermore that 5 min passage of play from the Hornets was horrible! lots of mistakes and horrible decisions converted into his teammates not passing to him whenever he was open. However, Gelos defence tracking was the BEST for that whole 5 mins. Let's give criticism to who deserves it. 1. His teammates literally ignores him whenever he is open (because he actually does move around). 2. Mainly the coach... On average the coach only gives him about 4 mins play per match that's not even enough to guild momentum to get the best out of the player. despite his low mins he has one of the best shooting averages in the team even coming off the bench cold.

      Exactly idk what these people think someone can do with these 3-4 min here and there plays. The man needs to be in the game, can players rack up a lot of points in that short time? yes superstars but he isn't a superstar but he still is very capable they need to let him play for another team in the G league because these final exams on 4 min is trash and dare I say a set up to fail.

  • Jeremy

    Gelo’s -8 doesn’t look good when all the other people are in the positive , I understand why they aren’t passing to Gelo or getting him involved… so, at this point it’s his second year in summer league… he needs to call for the ball instead of waiting for someone to look at him and pass to him

      @Surprise623er I could care less who’s brother he is bro is a good player he plays to his strengths and works on his weaknesses… what can bro not do that prevents him from having the ball in his hands… you need a shooter he’s him. You need him to play defense he’s him… he hustles for boards he runs the break and he’s damn near one of the first back on defense he goes the extra mile tell me at any point in my message I ain’t speaking truth. If you were busting your ass to make a statement you would be butt hurt if you was getting looked off or getting 5 mins of play. When you know you are more deserving.

    That Hornets team can't pass the ball to save their lives. I don't think the Hornets got ten assists as a team last night. That was one of the worst point guard performances in the Summer league. Gelo is one of the best shooters in the summer league and those point guards only could manufacture Gelo one shot, that's ridiculous.

    The Hornets are crazy! They don't understand that LaMelo Ball is not happy watching his brother not playing. Heck he himself had to do the impossible just to get a starting spot as a number 3 pick. I think Lamelo best move is to leave Charlotte and try to play with Lonzo in Chicago then they would have more leverage bringing Gelo onboard.

    • jpapp
      jpapp

      I've been thinking the same thing. I'd like to see him add some pump fakes or playing out of the triple threat to get to a midrange shot. Honestly, I think it's because he lacks confidence in his dribbling to take it inside, so he just falls back on shooting instead. I know it was an open shot but I'm just saying outside of this one time.

  • romeo montague

    Dkm u can't make an impact if they don't get u into the game ! so basically everyone is blackballing him so he don't make it that's my opinion about it an the way they only put him in for only 5 min u can't get rite with only 5 min yes u should always be ready but Damm give him the ball at least show u want him on the team for his ability to shoot the ball an his defense I mean if u not gonna use him then why waste everyone's time plus his I wanna see him play to his full ability not this once in a blue moon put him on the Court an see what he can do in 5 min stuff it's a joke how they expect him to just score for them an make them look good an they not helping him look good it's 50/50 if u want a player to do things for the team u gatta play them

      Well… Jaden Ivey dropped 11 in 5 min… & Gelo was just in the drew playing the whole game not winning any of them while putting up filler stats and turning the ball over at a high rate…. But y’all was acting like he was dominating the drew 🤣 sounds to me like y’all want it more than he does for himself.

    Gelo isn't an NBA level player and no matter how many times he proves it most of his fam base can't see it. This is what Lavar running his mouth inspired. Blame everyone else. Value hype over actual production. When in doubt just say 'neva loss' and smile

    • jpapp
      jpapp

      Yeah, I feel like Lavar mismanaged Gelo's entire situation. Gelo should have been working on expanding his game years ago in Lithuania or the JBA, back when the games didn't matter as much. Waiting until the G league to learn skills was way too late. I mean, can we at least get a pump fake or a jab step? Where's the growth? Honestly, Lavar should have challenged Gelo to score any other way but 3 pointers during that Drew League run (in my opinion). That would've at least shown a little versatility and development, although it's in a non-important rec league game. That would've been better than heaving full court passes and taking 3's six feet behind the line. Lavar either hasn't done enough to actually prepare him, or Gelo just doesn't want to put in the necessary work with resources available. Or they could just have a bunch of Yes Men around them clouding their reality 🤷‍♂️.

      just because you shoot every time you touch the ball doesn't mean people should sign you. The team play MATTERS to NBA teams.

Surely everyone wants to play with a shot chucker that sucks on defense right? That's like 80% of that hornets roster.

      @CM DUDE did I say anything about Jordan not wanting STAR players on his team signed to other brands. Jordan is not giving any favors to players not wearing Jordan Brand like signing someone's 2 points per game big brother like the Bucks did to keep you happy. Jordan don't care if Melo happy wearing those Pumas. Gelo should be playing for his local G-League team in the Ontario Clippers because Steve Ballmer will give him a chance to play in the NBA before Michael Jordan will.

      @xyz DUDE, Jordan drafted the best player available (LaMelo) no matter what shoe he wore to win games, but he ain't doing Melo no personal favors like the Bucks do for Giannis by putting his older brother on the team (name one other NBA team Thanasis could make). Jordan could have LiAngelo on the Hornets right now just like he had the Martin twins playing together, but he ain't doing no Puma wearing player any favors. He would trade LaMelo for hometown Zion Williamson if he could who makes MJ richer by wearing Jordan.

    • xyz

      @Kujichagulia Self-Determination ill debunk that real quick for you. If Jordan had a problem with Lamelo and Puma then he wouldn't of drafted him since Lamelo was with Puma before that draft. Also if it was such a problem then why would the front office give Gelo a shot in the first place. I think your trying to reach for anything you can instead of just admitting that Gelo isn't good enough for the G-league and Nba level

      @Lagos Fury first of all, what are you talking about? it's only been 1 year since he has been in the league (G league) and what we are saying is true. You can call them "excuses" all you want but if you actually watch the games he barely gets passed the ball and was barely getting minutes. DKM said himself in another video, when he did good they gave him less minutes and when he was slacking a bit they gave him more. tell me... How is Gelo scoring more than their star players with less minutes 😂? You haters are really just blind and want us to say he sucks so bad, most of y'all don't even watch and just look at stats.

    What’s he doing at 4:36? He just gave up, stopped playing defense and the shot wasn’t even in the air. Coaches see that stuff. And, yes, he just stands around doing nothing and if he does finally get the ball he just chucks up a 3 attempt. I’m shocked after his horrible drew league play that he’s even playing summer league.
