Lakers guard Lonzo Ball has already made it known that hes a great passer and sees the floor extremely well for a rookie, but hes struggled to knock down shots through five games of play.

The knock on Ball before he even entered the league was that he had an unorthodox shooting motion, and the Lakers rookie didnt seem to have any interest in adjusting it. Head coach Luke Walton was recently asked about it, and he also shot down the idea of Ball tinkering with his shooting style, calling it silly.

Still, Ball has made only 20 of 64 field goals hes attempted thus far this season " which amounts to a lackluster 31.25 percent shooting percentage " and something has to give. Walton, however, is not concerned about it, and added that Ball makes a lot of shots in practice.

Shooting well in practice, without being defended closely, is something many players excel at. Its a different story in games, however, going up against some of the best point guards in the world.
