Owner of Charlotte in the NBA, Michael Jordan has not always been as bright in his choices as he was in his playing career. However, this season, his Hornets are the surprise team thanks to LaMelo Ball. The GOAT has given its opinion on the rookie... and its verdict is final!
Charlotte's franchise is becoming the new darling of the NBA. Since the beginning of the season, Gordon Hayward and his teammates have been developing a seductive and spectacular game, without forgetting the icing on the cake: the results follow! James Borrego's men are currently 7th in the East (17-18) before the All-Star break.
Among the great satisfaction on the field, we can note the return of Hayward at his best level or the progress of Terry Rozier and PJ Washington. But above all, the draft of LaMelo Ball should be highlighted.
Arrived in North Carolina with the 3rd choice 2020, the leader is THE good pick of Michael Jordan. The latter has been very enthusiastic about his rookie, as reported by NBC Sports.
I think LaMelo Ball has adapted to the NBA game very quickly. We didn't think he would adjust this early in his career. So far, he has exceeded all of our expectations of him.
An extremely flattering compliment coming from a boss as prestigious as Michael Jordan. When one of the best players in history sends such a message to a rookie, it's no coincidence. The young LaMelo quickly made his mark on Charlotte's backcourt and even established himself as a first-team player.
In a playful and attack-minded team, the young leader is enjoying himself and handing out caviar to his teammates. His duet with Miles Bridges (the famous "Air Bnb") is the delight of fans of the franchise.
With 15.8 points, 6 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in 29 minutes per game, the young player has already seduced everyone in the organization, including Michael Jordan.
After having bluffed most of his opponents and teammates, LaMelo Ball continues its seduction operation and makes the happiness of its owner, Michael Jordan. The former Chicago icon seems to be overjoyed to have such a talent!
