Meet The GERMAN FREAK Who Could Replace LONZO BALL As The Lakers Point Guard!
This GERMAN FREAK Is A 6'10 Point Guard! The Lakers Drafted ISAAC BONGA Who One Day Could START Over Last Year's #2 Pick LONZO BALL!
The DLoading experiment lasted just two seasons, by no means did he underperform. But his improvement was overshadowed by an off-court related incident with teammate Swaggy P. From that point forward it was curtains for Russell, who was soon traded away to Brooklyn. As the entire organization embraced the arrival of Lonzo Ball fully buying into the hype that he was the guy. However, a year onwards, although I wouldn’t go as far as to say they’ve given up on him. The addition of Rajon Rondo and the prospect of him starting makes me question whether their as committed to the Lonzo experiment as they were last year, the signing of LeBron James also shifts the team’s focus completely. Zo is very much still in Magic and Pelinka’s long-term plans, but a recent under the radar pickup Isaac Bonga, could one day threaten the oldest ball bro and make that Lakers starting point guard position his own. Now, this isn’t a prediction or the most probable outcome, a lot depends on the assumption he’s developed correctly and let’s say the Lakers don’t just go out and land a guard of Damian Lillard’s caliber and that’s because.
Isaac Bonga is one of those low-risk high reward prospects, standing at 6 foot 10 with an incredible 7 foot wingspan. He’s an international who was ESPN ranked the 58th best prospect of this year’s draft class. Born and bred in Germany as apart of an athletic bloodline. Two of his siblings play soccer in 3rd tier of German soccer, while Isaac prior to the NBA worked his way up from a local streetballer, to apart of the national team. He’s played professionally in the German Bundesliga since 2016. At Frankfurt, where he stood out and emerged as an upcoming European talent, last November at just 17 he earned a call-up to the German first team, to represent his country at the 2019 fiba world cup qualifiers. A few months later he’d make his senior debut against Serbia, which saw him become the youngest German to do so in over 40 years. Bonga’s size, versatility, athleticism combined with his creativity, instincts and intensity makes him an extremely unique prospect. Who at the NBA level can legitimately play anywhere from the 1-4, Mo Wagner another one of the lakers 3 European pickups on first sight believed him to be another center. His passing is terrific and so is his court vision, which is most likely a result of his height that allows him to see over the defenses. This guy has one man fast break on hall of fame already, he has the ability to grab a board and move in transition, get into the lane and making plays. Players with those physical tools and such a high of a basketball IQ are rare. Already 6’10 still growing, as his frame continues to fill out he maintains his quickness and elite coordination. Isaac can handle the ball comfortably both get his own and create for his teammates. He has a variety of creative dribble moves that range from operating the pick and role to shifting his way around opponents. His length and intensity serve him well on defense putting no ceiling on his potential on that side of the floor. Bonga is still a raw and progressing project, a demigod with some noticeable weaknesses that can’t be ingored. His shooting overall is sub par, and being able to add a consistent jumpshot to his game would enhance his probability of reaching his full potential drastically. So far it’s been slow, Bonga was the 14th of 15 player selected to make the summerlegaue roster. His impact was minimal averaging just 2 points and a rebound per game, but remember at 18 he’s just a kid one who’s yet to scratch the surface of his potential, that could just as likely never be reached. He’s a risk, which is why he fell to the second round and was given away for cash. But in the second round there’s no harm in taking a gamble, if you don’t buy a ticket you don’t win the raffle. Next season we’ll probably see Bonga deployed to the G-League, where he could end up spending a couple of seasons. A move back overseas isn’t impossible either.

    Magic Johnson is on record saying that one of the reasons Rondo is on this team is because he wanted a veteran pg to help mentor Lonzo, that being said, I agree that Isaac Bonga is an intriguing young prospect.

  • Abraham Horowitz
    Abraham Horowitz

    I do feel Bonga will get developed properly, but I don't see him taking the pg spot from Lonzo with the way Ball is being pushed by Rondo. I can see him finding a place on the Lakers as a point forward off the bench. Isaac is such an interesting player, and I love his potential. I hope he does reach his potential, but he's easily 2 years away from pushing for a spot on the Lakers.

  • Rocky Nguyen
    Rocky Nguyen

    i had some high hopes on Bonga for 2 years now but his summer league showing was extremely piss poor. Every boxscore i took a look at the dude would play 8-20 minutes and get around 3-7 turnovers per game no cap, that is atrocious especially since its in the summer league. Hes still young but hes not "replacing" Lonzo any time soon

    • humanoffer

      it was just mainly travels which can sorta be fixed

    • Patrick

      @MYGOD I fux with Ingram but you tripping that's LeBron James he is the MVP of the past decade lol

    • not human
      not human

      Rocky Nguyen summer league means nothing... you've had high hopes of him since he was 16? Maybe be more patient with teenagers bro. He's got a lot of time to grow and blossom

    • MYGOD

      he is no Brandon Ingram who is the MVP on the team and will pull use to the Playoffs.

    Didn't do well in Summer League. Couple seasons in the G League - at least. Definitely need to work on his shots and making good decisions, then maybe he might have a chance.

  • jam_gyul

    There's a reason why Lakers kept him. Hoping for his success one day 💪

  • DKM

    For what they gave up to get him, I think Isaac is a great pickup for the lakers. He needs developed no doubt, and won’t be a hit overnight. These freaks are hit or miss, but when they hit they hit BIG. Do you think that some years down the line, on the chance he reaches his full potential. Could one day start for the lakers, and become their point guard of the future? Not a prediction, but what’s impossible these days in this sport!

  • Jake Miller
    Jake Miller

    If Ball and this German prospect develop into good players they could make a nasty defensive gaurd combo. That length would be scary. That is a big if cause one of these two will need to develop a nice 3 ball to play the 2 guard.

  • Lawaski Chisolm

    PG No.... PF would be great for him. Lamar Odom type player. He needs to work on getting stronger and shooting

      @theophilus sparks Start? from what team? i would rather be "stupid" on LA G-League team rather than thinking this guy will be a starter (in NBA) hahaha You actually sounds stupid!

    • theophilus sparks
      theophilus sparks

      Then don't make stupid remarks like that. He'll be brought along slowly and tutored by Miles Simon and Co. He's 2-3 years away from a start

  • L00kiii

    First G-League Game: 27 pts, 9 reb with 18 (!)... this guy is insane!!

  • TheLakerFanNexXDoor

    After what I saw in summer, Bonga never making an NBA roster seems more plausible.

  • Nikola Jakovljevic
    Nikola Jakovljevic

    He could be Giannis 2.0 and new Bruno Caboclo

  • European Basketball
    European Basketball

    He's listed at 6-9, not 6-10. And let's hold off on this kind of hype...he averaged 6 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in the German League, on a mediocre team last year. And German League is way below EuroLeague level.

  • My penis is incredibly tiny, but
    My penis is incredibly tiny, but

    I know you resisted the urge to compare him to Giannis

    • Pat47

      Brian Scalabrine he plays giannis like but he isn't the freak giannis is. He was drafted based on potential, and I can see him being an impactful role player.

    I think rondo can teach him more then he can teach Lonzo "since Lonzo apperantly got the best court vision and IQ 😂😂 he don't need Rondos help" and I'm sure he can average the same numbers playing PG if not better, (but only if he gets the same minutes Lonzo was getting last year tho) he'll taller,more aggressive, good vision, great pick up for Lakers wait till he developes more and puts on that 💪 he's going to be like a mini Magic

  • marquis green
    marquis green

    They already confirmed Lonzo starting until he reaches a full recovery this guy ain’t replacing nobody not magic number one boy

  • KCJ

    Lonzo just got a new jumpshot, he's about to go off. You were better off saying Rondo will start.

  • Dominion

    I'm sure this player is talented but L.A. Lakers loves Lonzo. Cause he's talented, home grown and went to high school, college and now playing pro in Southern Cal.

      You’re tripping if you don’t think Lonzo will be the opening day starter. Sure maybe rondo will replace him later on in the season but it’s Lonzos job to loose. Like you said it’s not confirmed he’ll start, but that’s just to light a fire under his ass

    • DKM

      Imo Lonzo will start reg season and rondo in playoffs

  • Once You Pop You Cant Stop
    Once You Pop You Cant Stop

    Whats outrageous is that I can feel the "lonzo hatin" although you might not even see it yourself!!! Zo is a 12-15 year NBA starter and Isaac Bongas potential is a 10-11 man as a PointForward NOT A PG!!!! See if you knew a little about Basketball (outside your PC) You would know that everything is about Matching Up on Defense so Isaac WOULD NEVER BE A PG...EVER!!!!

  • Enique Mason

    @ the very least he'd make a strong backup PG...

  • Vmann2103

    I dont know where you get your info, but ROndo is a bench player and Lonzo will start. Also, Rondo is meant to mentor Lonzo, Reaching son.

    I love it how your hype his fastbreak and other things just before we watch him eat shit at 3:28 #greatness

  • Patrick

    he will most likely never play PG they tried the same thing with Giannis because he can dribble does not make him able to run point. He will never be a point guard but he may be able to come down court with the ball without turning it over.

  • Johbee Squad

    Liam O'Brien

    you're kinda making it sound like he averaged 15 a game in the bbl while in reality he averaged like, i think, 4. that is not very impressive, coming from own experiences out of germany. he probably would have been on his way to become a solid euroleague player but instead entered the draft. and did so way too early.

    This is ridiculous! Bonga won't be a full time NBA starter as a pg.....maybe not EVER. Over the next 3 years, he'll likely get better but Ball will also and each and EVERY skill Ball has is far better than Bongas. At best Bonga will come off the bench in 3 -5 yrs as a swiss knife 6th man type. Ball is just FAR better with FAR more potential than Bonga.

    • DKM

      I agree with u for now bro
