Incase you missed it, last night was the NBA draft and our Charlotte Hornets had the number three pick. They chose LaMelo Ball! You may be familiar with the “Ball” last name because of Lonzo Ball but now LaMelo Ball will be giving us a new reason to know the name!

He’s a point guard and he chose not to go to college, but instead went and played all over the world. He once scored nearly 100 points in a high school game! Watch some of his highlights below:

Welcome to Charlotte, LaMelo! We can’t wait to watch you play.
