LaMelo Ball achieved his dream on Wednesday night as he was drafted into the NBA. Now, Ball will get to play for the Charlotte Hornets, who drafted him with the third overall pick. Ball’s boss is now the legendary Michael Jordan and he will certainly be receiving some great advice and mentorship, moving forward.
Of course, most people are fixated on LaMelo’s father LaVar, who infamously said that he could beat Michael Jordan in a 1-on-1 game. Over the past few days, LaVar has been the subject of memes as basketball fans contemplate whether or not the 1-on-1 game is ever going to happen. During his introductory Hornets press conference today, LaMelo spoke on the memes, noting that it’s fairly obvious who would end up winning a match between the two.
