LaMelo Ball has shown himself to be a one of a kind player. He is a highlight reel machine, threading beautiful passes to his teammates. LaMelo Ball has recently shown his potential by becoming the youngest player ever to get a triple-double, surpassing Markelle Fultz. Ball is a promising talent who has been steadily getting an increase in his minutes.

One of the people who has praised the youngest Ball brother was analyst Kendrick Perkins. Kendrick Perkins praised LaMelo Ball while claiming that he knew Ball was going to be a superstar.

LaMelo Ball has certainly flashed his talent before. Ball has built up a following ever since his Chino Hills days, and some have thought that he wasn’t able to do it in the league. There was a lot in his scouting report about inefficiency, and how his shot selection needed work. But that all paled in comparison to his potential as a 6’8 PG who could shoot. LaMelo Ball has an unselfish style and will be a building block in Charlotte for years to come.

LaMelo Ball’s triple-double gives fans a taste of what could be in store for the future. LaMelo Ball knows how to impact the game aside from scoring the ball, and that type of player is extremely valuable. Ball can do the dirty work on defense when he’s locked in while controlling the entire offense on the other end. LaMelo Ball is the key for Charlotte to compete in the playoffs, and so far, it looks like playoff basketball will be coming back to North Carolina.
