Lonzo Ball is a bust – Kendrick Perkins | The Jump

Rachel Nichols, Zach Lowe, Kendrick Perkins and Scottie Pippen head to “Crunch Time” to talk about whether the Toronto Raptors can keep winning with their spate of injuries, and whether New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball still has room to improve. They then (2:13) discuss the Milwaukee Bucks being favored vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, and (3:59) debate whether they’d rather have Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young or Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell.

    Got no playing time. Kendrick Perkins



  2. My name is Steve Rogers on December 29, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    I never liked Ball coming out. He had zero athletic ability at all. And had a horrible looking shot in college. The ONLY thing he had going for him was his vision/passing ability. But I never personally would have drafted him with a first round pick. And no its not one of those "sure say it now after you see him play in the pros things." The proof was in the pudding. And the extra topping was his father to boot!



  3. Austin Kuyrkendall on December 29, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    Perkins is a bust



  4. QESTY M8 on December 29, 2019 at 7:55 pm

    Lonzo honesty is one of those players like mudiay mcw elfrid Payton type players that have the potential to be good but can’t live up to there potential cause they can’t shoot or be effective enough on the floor for there draft picks lonzo is still young so I’m holding off on my bust label until I see what his Prime looks like



  5. selfie kroos on December 29, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Poor guy



  6. Kedbuka on December 29, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Why is Kendrick Perkins talking about anything? His career averages 5.4, 5.8, 1.0 and 1.2. He was basically a wasted pick. Great ox.



  7. Cory Lyons Music on December 29, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Thats what happens when notoriety and expectations get way too big too fast.



  8. sambradfordnative on December 29, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Hes only a bust bc of the insane amounts of overhype he had before draft



  9. ChrisG- on December 29, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Lonzo isn’t a bust. He was just really really overrated from the start. Never should’ve went #2



  10. Niemi Sylvestre on December 29, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Coming from a guy who played his whole career in a suit



  11. Devin Fuller on December 29, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Kendrick Perkins the last one to talk he let Blake griffin put his nuts all in his mouth and posterize him😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂



  12. Jord Woodard on December 29, 2019 at 8:08 pm

    Kendrick Perkins was the 27th pick and still a bust.



  13. Knowledge Born on December 29, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Suge Perkins



  14. BulkersRuleZ on December 29, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Its not like Kendrick is wrong. I said it before draft. Lonzo is overhyped player that was 2nd pick only because of his dad.



  15. Benjamin Ostiguy on December 29, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Never thought Ball was a legit NBA Star. All hype



  16. Legendary C0dez on December 29, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Lonzo Bust



  17. Gawd Talk on December 29, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    😂😂😂😂😂 am I the only one who thinks Perkins sounds stupid af? Lonzo plays TEAM ball he plays better when his teammates are scoring 💯 how’s he a bust when his stats are better than Perkins? 😂😂😂💀



  18. Rob Mason on December 29, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Shows that Magic Johnson and Isaiah Thomas should just hang out and kiss more often because they both have no business running an NBA team



  19. Rafy Aqwa on December 29, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    imo, Lonzo Ball is what a really successful marketing campaign looks like, regardless of how good the product is.



  20. R Daily on December 29, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    The greatest clickbait wait no?



  21. Matthew landis on December 29, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    The whole family is a bust.



  22. Ernesto Garcia on December 29, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    All I can say is that Lavar is a really good salesman 😂.



  23. Dan Bolka on December 29, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Well Scottie doesn’t know



  24. Adelfo Garcia on December 29, 2019 at 8:19 pm

  25. Ant Live on December 29, 2019 at 8:21 pm

  26. Nathaniel Lawrence on December 29, 2019 at 8:22 pm

  27. Mack Avelli on December 29, 2019 at 8:23 pm

  28. Rob D on December 29, 2019 at 8:24 pm

  29. Meric Manalastas on December 29, 2019 at 8:25 pm

  30. cgeorge 26_ on December 29, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    I agree about lonzo 🚮🚮🚮



  31. Anthony McArthur on December 29, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    Kendrick Perkins is obnoxious



  32. Travis West on December 29, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    Really perk was a straight highschool to Pro some can consider you was bust too 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️funny how guys become sport analyst then start talking crazy like they where that guy really perk



  33. loso333 on December 29, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    I feel like if Lonzo work on his game enough he can be a legit guard. He’s gone have to realize tho in order to be a threat in the NBA, he’s gone have to be a scoring guard now, being a pass first guard won’t cut it, unless he has petrified scorers around him. His game could be similar to Drew holiday as in being physical and getting to the rim. Not so much on the shooting part tho unless he really work hard on that. Plus he still young.



  34. DaQueen713 on December 29, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Finally the truth! BUST!!!!!



  35. Dennis Rodriguez on December 29, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    Perk is a Steph Curry hater lol



  36. Kingslayer on December 29, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    Yo mama is a bust



  37. You’re Trash on December 29, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    Perkins sounds salty lol



  38. All WrestlingTV on December 29, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    Look at the lineups and coaching moves that has occurred in the pelicans. Lonzo was always used inconsistent and not given the role he needs. He can’t adjust because he is not given the chance to he is literally playing another role almost every game. Not his fault. 🤷🏽‍♂️💯



  39. M White on December 29, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    Kendrick Perkins looking like Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer…. Gold!



  40. Lindsanity Macatlang on December 29, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    White guy scared of Lavar Ball 😂



  41. Melvin Pruitt on December 29, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Lonzo won’t be a bust,sorry perk,but you’re wrong on this one.



  42. Johnny R on December 29, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    Kendrick Perkins is a Curry hater. What a jealous POS



  43. Andy Bailey on December 29, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    "My boy is gonna be the next Jordan"



  44. DieselBoy 5967 on December 29, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    If anyone was a bust, it be Kendick Perkins



  45. Lord AristoCat on December 29, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    I’m gonna throw the b-word at lozno … but it ain’t bust



  46. Chris BeenRaw on December 29, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    When the hype settles with the dust lol Perk knows what it is. Shoutout to BMT



  47. Rall O on December 29, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    Kendrick should not be allowed to talk about being a bust



  48. Scott Johnson on December 29, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    Lonzo was always overhyped



  49. M on December 29, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    Perkins hit the nail on the head. You draft Lonzo #2 because he outlet passes and gives up the ball early??? Honestly, I can chuck a ball down the court too on a fast break. That’s nothing special. Sub-50% free throw shooting DEF isn’t special. He is who he is. Bench player.



  50. Carlos Baez on December 29, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    I know that before he play 1 game in the NBA
