The 2020/21 season may be over for the Charlotte Hornets, but rookie sensation LaMelo Ball is still shooting. The 20-year-old had a terrific season on the court. Now, he's trying to carry that success to his personal life, too.
Recently, IG model Chantel Jeffries shared an Instagram live with her followers. Melo saw an opportunity and took it, shooting his shot with the girl, sending heart emojis in front of thousands watching the stream.
Jeffries once dated pop star Justin Bieber during his wildest times. They were together in 2014 before coming back for a brief period in 2016.
Ball started his NBA career amid doubts about his transition to the big leagues. He quickly shut them down, becoming the clear candidate to win the 2021 ROY award before a wrist injury made him miss 21 games.
He could return to action to help his Hornets reach the play-in tournament, where the Indiana Pacers demolished them.
In his first season in the association, the point guard averaged 15.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game. It remains to be seen if he scores with Jeffries, but you can't say he's not shooting as much as he can.
