Derrick Rose only played 2 summer league games.He showed enough in those two games in driving to the hoop and running the offense to not need to play anymore. The games aren't important for 1st rounders.
You're making my point for me. No one should make a big deal about Summer League play, and certainly not one game of Summer League play.
And these games aren't important to anyone who doesn't need a camp invite.

No, you're actually comparing Bronny to Derrick Rose, the #1 draft choice. Bronny is nowhere close to Rose's ability, or his resume going into the NBA

I actually think these games are pretty important to Bronny. If he sucks as bad as he did the first game, the pressure will mount, and more people will complain about the pick

What pressure?  Bronny has a 4 year guaranteed contract.  His father has more money than anyone could imagine having.  Nobody is expecting that he will get any meaningful minutes for the Lakers, outside of a couple sentimental minutes that he gets to share on the court with his father at the same time.  Anybody upset about "wasting" the 55th pick are irrational.  You don't expect to get anything productive with the 4th last pick in a Draft.

Yeah, there won't be any pressure based on summer league performance. That's just silly.

No, I'm not. I'm pointing out out that Summer League games - and certainly not one Summer League game - don't foretell a players' future.

Oh no, people will complain. That is serious stuff.
How exactly would people complaining affect Bronny's future? Will it make his jump shot worse? Weaken his defense? Lessen his handles?
Do you think Bronny spends his free time perusing Scoop and other online forums to see what anonymous commenters are saying about his Summer League performance?

I am talking about teammates, and those on the G league team that could/should be taking his spot, you know those guys that actually need these jobs

Actually Bronny would be at the end of the becnh, it would be the 9, 10, 11th man. And when Bronny is in, if he can't run an offense, or play PnR defense, it affects everyone who he is playing with.

I'm going to guess that Bronny and Lakers' management aren't terribly concerned about the feelings of G-Leaguers who think they're more deserving.
In fact, I would imagine every NBA team has G-Leaguers who think they're more deserving than the 13th through 15th guys on the roster.

What about those on the active roster that are losing minutes to a player with much lesser abilities? Decided to skip that part?

What makes you think this is going to happen?
When Bronny is playing important minutes ahead of DeAngelo Russell or Austin Reaves or Spencer Dinwiddie, I'll take your complaints seriously. Until then, you're just inventing exceptionally unlikely hypotheticals to justify being upset over something trivial.

Well Lebron wants to play with his son. Playing together in the last 3 minutes in a 30 point blowout isn't what he has in mind. If you can't understand that, I don't know what to tell you.

The pick of Bronny should not divert more meaningful discourse concerning the welfare of this country, hey?

We'll see. It might be that spending quality time in the gym practicing and traveling together is enough or giving his son the best opportunity.

I'm surprised Bronny's agent (and father) didn't advise him to take a 1 year deal so the Lakers can offer him a max contract next offseason.  LBJ would've loved that for his son.
