He's been in the spotlight throughout his entire career and he will continue this way, as LaMelo Ball has been selected by the Charlotte Hornets with the third overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Ball, who spent last season playing with the Illawarra Hawks were he was named the NBL Rookie of the Year, joins Lonzo Ball in the NBA and become the first brothers to be drafted in the top 3.
The Chino Hills native recently signed a multi-year shoe deal with Puma Basketball. He also averaged 17 points, seven assists and seven rebounds per game with the Hawks in the NBL.
Multiple years after receiving criticism, guess LaVar Ball wasn't wrong at all. With Lonzo in the Pelicans, LaMelo in Charlotte and LiAngelo playing for the Oklahoma City G-Legue team, all three Ball brothers are affiliated with an NBA franchise.
LaVar even wore a hat with the phrase 'I told you so', while awaiting for the LaMelo news at their Chino Hills mansion.
