  • I wish Lamello played for The Warriors! If he leaves The Hornets he should come to The Bay and let Chef Curry show him the way , groom him and give him the legendary touches early. That would be DOPE!

Why it threw me on Gelo but we all make mistakes and I think Gelo has paid the price and them some! I will aways love all 3 of them! Go Team Tina Ball and her husband lol 😂😜🤪 jk Mr Ball

  • ESPN and First Take haven’t done a video on Lamelo since they post their initial hate videos about his draft position and his 0 points in first game. Smh they won’t even acknowledge his success how much they hate Lavar and to be wrong.

  • What about now ?You see yesterday's game 1-9-2020. Youngest player in the NBA with a triple double... Only thing broken is your reporting lol...Numbers don't lie triple double! Jordan just got him an all star and future MVP. I'm calling it. Lamelo has the most passion for the game on any court in comparison to any player but most importantly is his path to the NBA and my friends thats what makes the man dangerous. Knowledge,Passion,Appreciation = He Got Game!!!!!

  • When you hear people like Max speaking on the mellow ball it is obvious that he has not watched any games. Lamelo is an excellent defender and he can score from anywhere on the court lamelo shot suffered because he grew from 5'10 to 6'8 in 2 years. once he gets used to his body he'll be back to scoring like he used to when he got 92 points in the high school regulated game

    Rashard StallworthRashard StallworthUukausi sitten
  • LaMelo ball is the reason why they will be playing on national television and international television this year. Lamelo played professionally in Australia and in Europe. With his dad's big baller brand they went to China and they went all over the world selling those products at pop up shops so this young man is a global brand before he ever stepped on an NBA court so Michael Jordan could not have drafted anybody that would have brought more attention to his team than LaMelo ball in this draft. The question is will the coach do the same thing that the pelicans did and end up getting himself fired like Dale demps did

What I don't like is what I saw when I dropped my Bulls hat on the ground the other day. As it lay, upside-down, I noticed a robot. I looked closer to see a robot reading a book. Is this some sort of soft-disclosure for a future state of machine learning?... Creepy
