LOL this caster crying about how bad lamelo is, and then trash-talking about how lamelo won't make it to NBA and stuff but here he is not and he still doesn't want to admit defeat. Just look at how he wants to cry already.

Lamelo simply is not the Athlete Toppin or the others. He cant jump and will have trouble adjusting. Lemelo will be launching long threes. Thts it

"When Lavar said he could beat me 1v1, I took it personal. I said 'ok, fine. You think youre the best? Ima show you why youre not.' So I drafted his son. Nowhere to run now. Ill take out the entire family, 1 by 1 if I have to." - Jordan on drafting LaMelo Ball

Lamelo's biggest downfall and "may" be what keeps him from ever becoming a superstar is his horrible "shot selection".
Elijah Moore

Well he is tall, sometimes he hits 3s, he passes well, his defense sucks, but hey it will bring in money for a little while to see if he's developed as he's aged. I think he's the same just taller.

Screw box office. Look at Lonzo. He was supposed to be “box office”. If you can play, that speaks for itself. Not saying he can’t play. But if you the man, everything else WILL come. Don’t worry so much about making bank, because if he don’t deliver....it’s another Lonzo situation. I don’t know who would have been best pick for Charlotte, but it should be one that would advance the team and not one that would draw a crowd(box office).

Lamelo ball is not a Simmons like on the Philadelphia 76ers. He's not a player that's going to change the team but only to join the team.

I’m pretty sure Michael Jordan did not pick all these players himself. An owner has a say so but does not actually pick. Also, Lamelo is going to get blasted by the critics just because he’s famous. If he was unknown people would be praising the hornets right now. That being said idk if he’ll be a good player or not.

Is forgiveness a nonexistent concept anymore? Whoever made that decision is a terrible creator. Trying to pull peoples past against them. Michael was a great ball player and I loved watching him play. He had a way of bringing out perfection in people at just the right moment. I liked him for reasons beyond the basketball court though as well. He had values about family and respect that were the same as my own.

With Hayward, Lamelo can turn into the next Jason Kidd. Just like Kidd, his jumper isn't there early in his career. However, it can improve to be decent. Until then, go for lay ups or pass it others.

Ant is going to be a stud. Wiseman is going to be a stud. And Melo might still be the best player in the draft. I think this draft will be remembered as one of the great classes of all time. We’re looking at 15-20 legitimate nba players and about 4-5 of them will be stars.
